Western Nursery Sales, Inc. started out as a small wholesale nursery in 1994. The owners saw an opportunity for a company that could provide a quick turnaround for projects in progress with job-site delivery scaled for residential designs up to large-scale commercial projects.

Over the years they have built up an infrastructure that can provide customers with complete plant procurement from local growers, as well as specialty growers from Canada to California. Mike Keeling is the current owner of Western Nursery Sales. Mike was a former long-me employee of the nursery before taking over ownership in 2021.

Registration is now closed.
