King's Sunset Nursery was started by Zuela and Lillie King in a small section of the family garden almost 100 years ago. It was started as an extra income to their field crops of cotton and corn. The nursery crops did bring in extra income and soon became the main crop grown on the King farm. Trees and shrubs were sold to home owners and people beginning landscaping businesses. Some trees were sold for as much as .50 cents and shrubs as much as .25 cents in the early years. Today over 600 acres of trees are now in production. Now the nursery is run by 2nd and 3rd generations, Virgil (Bill), Tommy, Roger King, and soon to be 4th generation, Noah. The use of mechanical digger and drip irrigation has made it possible to grow more and larger trees than ever could have been harvested in the earlier years by hand. Machinery is used in place of mules to cultivate and maintain trees. Today most of the trees and shrubs are sold to landscape contractors, re-wholesalers, and garden centers through out the eastern half of the United States.
