More than eighty years ago, Oliver Scott started growing perennials and vegetables in Lincoln upon his arrival from Scotland. In 1935, with his wife Martha, they constructed their first greenhouse and increased the variety of products they grew. The business has expanded to over 5 acres of greenhouses for growing bedding plants, potted plants, seasonal crops, spring bulbs, perennials, hanging baskets, etc. We also carry an extensive inventory of evergreens, flowering shrubs, shade and fruit trees, fertilizers, bulk soils, and much much more!

Insects in the lawn
The European Chafer, a beetle resembling a June bug, will lay its eggs in your lawn. The eggs hatch into grubs, which in large numbers, will damage the roots of grass. This can be followed by crows, skunks and other animals digging and destroying your lawn to get at the grubs. Prevention is the first step by building the best, healthy lawn you can so they won’t lay eggs. Keeping the grass a bit longer may also help too. Control methods include biological controls with nematodes, or sprays such as those used by lawn care companies. Like chinch bugs, some years are worse than others.
