Back in 1938, the founder offered many universities and professionals free plants for research and as supplements in more exceptional gardening areas. And to this day, our family-owned company still backs the founder's wishes to donate to fit the needs of non-profits, gardening bloggers and also universities for further studies and to help our planet stay beautiful. Plants fight pollution, provide fresh air, clean the environment, beautify and protect. And our motto is "Why to throw away what could be someone else's treasure

We have donated to over 400 universities, national site planning and garden blog and website owners serious about the environment and planting plants for purification, beautification and to increase cleaner air and help the environment.

Our Nursery has been donating plants for research for 61 years. Thus far, more than 419 universities, governmental organizations and non-profit groups have benefited from this service. The nursery offers over 500 different species of herbaceous, wetland and medicinal plants that can and have been used in projects for the medical field, environmental studies and lab experiments. Since the specimens are available year-round, regardless of season, and are grown without pesticides, insecticides or herbicides, they are perfect for scientific experimentation and research. Universities studying in plant experiments and science include Harvard University, Yale University, a joint project conducted by Oxford, Cambridge and Stanford Universities, Rhodes University, the University of Minnesota and Michigan State University. The plants themselves have been used for studies in space, the fight against disease, plant hybridization, controlling storm water runoff, urban sustainability and more.
