Holidays at the Nursery
Holiday Giving Tree
We've put up a Giving Tree in both our locations to benefit three great local organizations with the help of your support!
Select an ornament that reflects the amount you’d like to donate and bring it to the cashier. We'll send a Portland Nursery Gift Card to the chosen organization for that amount.
For your generosity, you will receive a coupon for $5 off your next purchase of $20 or more!
No time to come in? Call us to purchase a gift card over the phone!
Parkrose Helping Hands
The holiday season is always a great time to share in the bounty. We have bins at both locations to assist Parkrose Helping Hands in providing to the less fortunate. Drop off your non-perishable food items, as well as new, unwrapped gifts for kids up to age 17.
Bins will be up until December 4.
From the organizers:
“Our families are some of the most in-need in Portland. Shaver Elementary’s free/reduced-cost lunch percentage is nearly 90%. We have a weekly food pantry that many families take advantage of, but, as you know, there are a few weeks off during the holiday season that can be difficult for families who have come to rely on our weekly support. So, every year we make our last Food Pantry in December (this year it’s on Dec. 17th) a big event where we send families home with ample food and even gifts. We rely on our donation bins placed at local businesses and organizations around Portland for most of the food/toys that we distribute.”

Our 2015 Fruit and Nut Tree Buyer's list has just been published!
Please note: These guides are for planning purposes only. Fruit trees arrive February-March and the lists can change based on crop failures that cause shortages. Varieties sell quickly and we cannot guarantee all varieties to be available. We'll let you know when they start arriving and we ask that you please call ahead to confirm stock.
Every year as summers bright, showy containers begin to fade, we face a rather harsh reality with our porch pots and hanging baskets, do we really have to refresh our faded summer pots with the drab hues of winter even though flowers continue to bloom in the landscape?
