One remark we often hear in our store is how amazed some customers are when they discover the sheer volume of plants in our nursery. Morrison's Home and Garden is well known in the area for the unparalleled service we offer, but we're also second to none when it comes to sourcing the best plants available on the market.
Morrison's Home and Garden in has been helping create beautiful outdoor spaces since 1978. Out behind our store you'll find a 1/2 acre of retail nursery with 3 greenhouses, two of which are heated and are open year round. Our emphasis is obtaining the newest and best cultivars for sale. We currently grow a wide array of fruit trees such as apple, peach, cherry, blueberry and Asian pears. You'll find your favorite spring bulbs like daffodils, crocus, tulips and hyacinth and summer flowering bulbs like dahlias and lilies.
We pot up hundreds of specialty perennials each spring and we also grow specialty shrubs, hardy bamboos, Japanese Maples and boxwoods. Most of our nursery stock is in containers with a number of bigger trees balled in burlap for planting.
Make sure you check out this year's initial stock inventory, but remember that we keep on buying plants and adding new stock all season long. If you are just starting out in gardening you might even want to visit one of our Preferred Sources like Monrovia. Go and visit their website, it's a great resource for "plant browsing" and our customers often ask us to order a plant they've seen there online if we don't already have it in stock.
But our selection at Morrison's is only half of the story, what truly sets us apart is our staff. Unlike the box stores you're not buying plants from somebody in desperate need of a summer job. Two of our staff have 4 year degrees from the University of Massachusetts and 3 others are graduates of the UMass Extension Green School. You would be hard-pressed to find a more experienced group and the difference at Morrison's is summed up on our delivery trucks: "unique plants with uncommon service".
So before you start working on your backyard this spring, come around and look at ours.
