The January print edition of Digger magazine featured a cover story on Oregon: The State of Perfection (download the PDF here). I visited with five wholesale nurseries to learn about how they got started, what they grow, why they feel so passionately about it, and how they make sure what they sell is top quality. The first stop was Oregon Pride Nurseries in McMinnville, Ore. (map), where I chatted with owner Mark Van Hoef, Operations Manager Christine Ames and Sales Manager Keith Kershaw. I also filmed our first State of Perfection video, which you will see below. We will post a new video each Friday morning for the next four weeks. In each one, we ask an Oregon grower to talk about a favorite plant or tree. Come back and see them all here.
