In winter the hothouse is chock-a-block full of cuttings -- stock for container & field
Beer is often found in the toolbox at the end of a long day. When time permits, we brew our own.

History + Planning + Propagation = Sustainability
In 2014, it became apparent that a sycamore, locally-known as the "Moon Tree" and growing on Paper Products Co. property since 1992, could not be preserved under the design needs of Cincinnati's Lick Run Conveyance System, a massive stormwater management project.
Lagergren Nursery is ensuring the tree's historic genetics will endure. Cuttings have been made for both rooting and grafting, and seedlings have been started. Design for the finished project will incorporate these offspring as part of the green infrastructure -- providing hydrologic and eco-system benefits unattainable via grey (concrete) infrastructure. We think this is a great future for a legacy tree!

If you've got clients that are looking for something out of the ordinary, or who've been bitten by the collecting bug, check our Availability. And if you don't see it there, ask. We indulge an interest in the rare and unusual that, due to limited quantities, simply isn't included on the annual list. You never know what we might be growing this year.
