S'S Farm Nursery is a husband/wife owned business in operation
for 42 years, north of Charlottesville, VA. We
offer over 2000+ varieties of Perennials, Shrubs and Trees.
We have one of
the largest retail selections of plants in the Country. You'll love our selection of
Unusual & New Perennials, Shrubs and Trees
plus the Tried & True Classics
unique in that we are a Retail Mail Order Nursery that grows all (and
propagates most) of our own plants and then sells them directly to
the public. You will see a difference in plants that aren't mass
produced but grown the old fashioned way, with loving hands instead of
machines and with scissors and pruners rather than
a new caterpillar in our greenhouses!
Garden Center is now Closed. Mail Order Only.
In 2006, we made a transition from being primarily a Retail Business to
being a completely Internet-Based
Mail Order Business! A big switch after 36 years of
Retail! We're thrilled (overwhelmed, actually) at the
wonderful response we've had from our Mail Order customers and look
forward to giving you the same service that we always offered to our
local Retail Garden Center customers.
Up Service for Local Customers is no Longer Possible. We
couldn't justify the VERY expensive liability insurance.
the Nursery's Name...
When the original owners, Terri and
Pete Sheuchenko, the
parents of the current owners, had a
sheep/cattle ranch in California, their Brand for Lazy S'S Ranch was sideways or 'Lazy'
Having a recognizable brand is
important when raising livestock to identify stock. When they moved to Virginia, they
used the same name but changed Ranch to Farm, since Ranch sounded a little
strange in Virginia!
If you look closely at the
logo at left,
you'll see the sideways S's, shown here in white with a black leaf at the
bottom to make the old sheep/cattle 'brand' a little more nursery-like.
In answer to the occasional
question about our name:
"No -- the Sheuchenkos were a lovely, very conservative older
Ukrainian couple and the possible 'play on words' or naughty 'sound alike' term for
didn't occur to them until their first Halloween here when the sign out
front was altered by high school pranksters!!" :-)
We have friends in Low Places!
Come see who they are...
(Most, but not all, are human!)
