How did this happen?

by oglesby

In 19OPI247, Raymond Oglesby had $500, a red pickup truck and one employee (him) and started growing plants for the local landscape market in South Florida. Soon, he was not only growing plants but growing his business into a successful landscape nursery.  In the early 1970’s, Ray started his pioneering work in the art and science of plant propagation being one of the first to understand the impact plant tissue culture would have on the future of horticulture.  Now, 71 years later his legacy is a vibrant and successful breeding and young plant company with over 90 dedicated employees.

We are grateful to the talented and innovative people who have helped us grow and prosper.  But most of all, we thank our loyal customers who have encouraged and supported our work through these many years.

Ornamental Grasses

by oglesby

muhlenbergia-capillaris-muhly-grassWhy has interest in ornamental grasses grown rapidly over the last few years?  Simple, grasses can enhance the beauty of almost any garden almost anywhere with almost no maintenance.  In the garden they provide motion, texture, softness and color.  They blend in, fill in or standout and scream “Here I am!”  There are short ones, tall ones, small ones and really, really big ones. And if that’s not enough, during the season many of them reward us with beautiful plumes of feathery flowers.

So it’s simple, if you’re not growing ornamental grasses you should and if you are growing grasses give our young plants a try.  Most of the grasses we offer are produced directly from our own tissue culture laboratory from virus tested stock and we promise you will be amazed at their vigor and performance.  We are constantly adding grasses to our product line to give you the varieties you need to be successful.  Call us…You won’t regret it!
