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!

Are the garden mums I see perennials and will they come back year after year?
They are a tender perennial, which means that winter can cause damage or even kill the plants. Plant in a good perennial soil mix and water them in to start root growth. Remember it is later in the season before they flower naturally so choose a bed with other interesting flowers and plants to have color from spring through early summer. Some winters favor them and your mum plants will over winter.
