I am the former owner of an independent, specialty nursery. After twelve years in the business, tending plants seven days a week, it was time to hang up the pruning shears.
I've learned there is no such thing as retirement, indeed, with a tip of the hat to General MacArthur, we'll just say "old
nurserymen never die, they just turn brown on the tips".
business plans for the future are still taking shape, for now I'll say, I am in the horticultural services business.
While I will no longer maintain a full-fledged nursery, I plan to continue working with former and new customers on an "advisory basis".
the doctor is in: i make house calls
Our customers often selected plants that just would not fit in the trunk of the
Lexus. We were happy to deliver
purchases, for a modest charge, in the immediate
neighborhood. Depending on what you are looking for and the
number of plants, we will help you get them to their new home.
- I'll provide references to
trustworthy individuals or plant sources that I rely on.
- I'll always be available to visit, chat about my favorite conifers, Japanese maples, and other plant passions
