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!

Fruit trees with discolored leaves and black spots on fruit and leaves, what is the problem?
The heat and humid weather may cause disease in fruit trees. Preventing the problem is best. Often growers use dormant oil and lime sulfur in the winter or when the leaves are off to coat the branches and the ground around the tree to prevent disease. Cleaning up leaves and left over fruit at the end of the growing season is a great preventative measure. Alternating by spraying of garden sulfur one week and bordo mixture, which contains copper, the following week can help. Careful pruning for good air circulation is also very important.
