About us

At Oliver Nurseries, we’ve built our reputation over the last 50 years as one of the premium specialty nurseries in New England, providing customers with the highest quality and unique selection of plant material.

We propagate dozens of species of uncommon trees and shrubs, perennials, alpines and rock garden plants here at the nursery. We source all the other plants from the best growers, many of them local, and hand-select specimen plants from all over the country. Oliver Nurseries is also known for perennial specialties with a wide variety of cultivars of paeonia, epimidium, clematis, spring ephemerals and wildflowers.

Our display gardens have been here for fifty years, so we can show our customers dozens of mature trees and shrubs, established perennial borders, rock and wall gardens and miniature landscapes.

At Oliver Nurseries, everyone who works here has a passion for plants and gardening. We have one of the only experts in alpine and trough gardening, propagation and cultivation on staff, and all of our employees possess a depth of knowledge of plant material and its diverse applications in the landscape. Many of our customers tell us they learn something new about the plants or gardening every time they visit the nursery.

We also have a selection of trellis’, containers and planters, and additionally sell our own hand-made hypertufa troughs in all shapes and sizes, and build custom troughs from time to time.

If you’re coming a distance for particular plants, we strongly urge you to telephone ahead, as supplies of many varieties are limited and stock fluctuates
