Perino’s Garden Center was founded in 1949 by WWII veteran Salvador “Sam” Perino Sr. on the corner of Carrollton and Claiborne as a fruit market. In 1955 Perino’s moved to its current location on Veterans and began growing quality plant material 45 minutes away in the Covington area. The facility rapidly expanded to 300,000 square feet of heated greenhouse space and 10 acres of outdoor growing space with the help of the second generation.
The business has weathered its share of storms, including Hurricane Katrina in 2005, but were able to bounce back stronger than ever thanks to our loyal customers.
