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!
We feature a question and answer session on CBC radio, as well as here on our website. Please use this form to ask any questions and we do our best to provide you with the answer to your questions!
How do I get rid of ants?
Usually when ants are present it is because they are eating other insects. They can be helping to rid your peonies of aphids or removing insects from your fruit trees. When they are in the house, ant traps or a boric acid powder/sugar mix can be effective. Just be sure to keep these safely away from pets and children. If a nest appears in the center of your walk try using boiling water.
