End of an era...goodbye Marigold Nursery

Marigold Nursery was a wholesale nursery until the early 70's when they opened the nursery up for retail. I moved to Sidney in 1979 when we bought our little house. Everything we planted was purchased at Marigold. I have spent more hours than I can count there. I often corner my poor unsuspecting family members, Jess, Mom, Amanda...."do you want to go to Marigold?" We go and look at everything and chat, talk gardens, buy plants. I must admit to feeling a bit heartbroken about Marigold Nursery closing. But I understand. Things and times change. So I wish them well. Thank you for being such a huge part of our lives and landscape for so many decades.

Their last day in business will be December 24th.

"They paved paradise to put up a parking lot" - Joni Mitchell. We have just lost two nursery operations in our area in the last two years. Family businesses that must have been in operation for at least 50 years each. One sold to become another assisted living community. I preferred the greenhouses. George
