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!

What should I do to prevent disease on my fruit trees & maples?
Clean up all the fallen leaves and remove them from the property. Do not put them in the compost. Plan to spray lime sulphur and dormant oil once the trees have lost all of their leaves. It is also a good idea to treat the ground around the base of the tree with the lime sulphur and dormant oil solution. Prune away any dead or diseased branches at this time as part of your fall cleanup. This is an ideal time to give them some nutrition via a slow release fertilizer or compost around the base of the tree.
