Fessler Nursery Co. is a family-owned-and-operated nursery that has grown to over 500,000 square feet of greenhouse space. It grows more than 70,000 baskets annually and offers a large variety of quality annuals that are shipped seasonally throughout the Willamette Valley and Southern Washington.
In 2004, Fessler Nursery became a root-n-sell for Selecta, one of the leading breeders of annuals in the world, and now ships rooted cuttings across the country. Poinsettias are shipped locally during November and December. Florist azaleas are available as liners, budded or blooming.
Co-owner Marvin Fessler greets us upon our arrival. He explained that we’d be getting a look at their most recent trials of plants for Selecta First Class. The plants were planted first of June, then moved outside and left out in full heat and rain since the Fourth of July. They couldn’t have been more beautiful in full summer bloom.
As one attendee remarked, “This is what I came for — to see these plants.”
