Nursery Tour for Random Acts of Gardening Readers

Have you ever wanted to get a behind-the-scenes look at a wholesale nursery? Visiting small, specialty nurseries is one of my favorite things to do. Luckily for me, Oregon is home to many specialty nurseries.

Dave Leckey, owner of Oregon Small Trees, is inviting RAG readers to tour his small wholesale nursery. He specializes in slow growing grafted conifers and Japanese maples. Dave started Oregon Small Trees as a second career after retiring from the timber brokering business. His trees are special and it takes years—in some cases more than a decade—to grow the trees to specimen size. He uses cultural practices that minimize water and herbicide use and tries to coax each tree into its best individual form. But I’ll let him tell you all about it.

Join us on Saturday, June 19 at 10am for a tour of Oregon Small Trees. Let us know if plan to be there. Please RSVP by June 15; we’ll send you the nursery’s address, directions and a reminder email as the date approaches.
