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!
Can I move shrubs in the summer?
Summer may be the hardest time to move plants but can be done if necessary. Prepare the new site with compost, soil and peat moss. Add lots of water before you dig, and after the shrub is in its new location. Try to retain as much of the roots as possible and try to keep as much soil around them as possible. If you experience leaf loss or branches dying back after the move, prune off the dead areas to avoid disease.
