The Nursery is for Sale - What does that mean to our customers?? 

Home     Storefront

As you may have noticed or you wouldn't be on this page, the Nursery is for sale.  Oh my gosh, what does that mean?  Is it risky to order?

1.  We've been for sale for several years.  Selling a nursery or any large business isn't like selling a car.  It rarely happens overnight and even then, requires a somewhat lengthy training/transition period.  We're not selling it to go out of business.  On the contrary!

2.  We don't plan to leave!  We love working here but at 64 and 58, we're ready for a set 30 or so hour a week job, semi-retirement and more time with our now 2 Grandchildren.   Pete loves propagating, I (Debby) love doing the website.  We'd both be happy as pigs to stay on here doing that for many, many years. 

3.  Our home is here, right beside the nursery and midway between our grandchildren.  We're happy in this spot.

4.  And finally, many people have looked at the nursery.  But, hokie as it sounds, (well we're both graduates of Va Tech, so of course are Hokies in the true sense) and feel a stewardship to the 28 acres of land, the plants, the deer, squirrels, hawks and Great Blue Heron AND for sure, our customers and we won't sell until we're sure we have someone who will continue in the way this family business has run for many, many years starting with Pete's parents.    Selling a family started and run business is different than selling a McDonalds.  Pete's family created the nursery.  I created the website.  You don't casually walk away from your creations!

We don't think it's going to serve us in the Nearafter and the Hereafter to sell to the wrong person.  Karma, or however you choose to see it, does play a role in our lives.  When the right buyer comes along, we don't think you'll see a bit of difference in the quality and service you're used to or if you do, it will only be because it's even better!

Our best,

Debby and Pete Sheuchenko
