Witt Marion re-directed the Sportsman Market on East Main Street in Tupelo. The market was located just under the water tank into a retail nursery and garden center in the early 1950’s. By 1953, he was fully stocked with plants, fertilizers, plant care products, and garden accessories.
As the business grew, a landscape and installation department was introduced. Witt, his wife, daughter Bettie, and son Bob all helped grow the business by offering personal customer care and the best quality products for successful gardening outcomes.
As Bettie and Bob grew older, Bettie left for Texas and Bob spent his off-time from high school shaping his passion for all things growing. In the mid-1970’s Bettie married Byron and Bob left for college.
Bettie and Byron returned to Tupelo in 1975 and planned the opening of Mid South Nursery’s second location on Coley Road, which opened in 1976.
Many things have changed since then. However, Bob, Bettie, and Byron have worked to continue Witt’s idea of personal customer interactions, provide the best quality of plants and products, and an overreaching desire to guide its customers to successful gardening outcomes.
