WESTERVILLE, Ohio – A new online tool makes it quick and easy for nursery stock buyers to find the quality plants they need.

With the recent uptick in the housing market, landscapers and landscape architects’ business is increasing and they are looking to quickly locate quality plant stock. The Ohio Nursery & Landscape Association’s newly developed website, Nursery Stock Select, connects wholesale buyers with growers across Ohio who offer inventories of over 1,000 different plant varieties.

“That information is literally a few mouse-clicks away,” said ONLA Associate Executive Director Jennifer Gray. “And it’s free.”

Nursery stock inventories are updated regularly on nurserystockselect.com, and can be located by plant, by grower’s name, and by region.

“Buyers can connect with growers who are not only right here in the state of Ohio, but often practically in their own backyards, thanks to the search tool,” Gray said. “There’s an urgent need for this service."

Growers were planting less during the recession of the past several years, and with the increase in demand this spring, the inventories are going fast. But beyond this, landscapers and designers are becoming more specifi c in the plants they desire for a given project, searching for particular plants.

“Nursery Stock Select gives wholesale buyers an easy, quick, and no-cost way to fi nd the exact plant stock they are looking for, which grower has them, and even how many. With a few more clicks, a buyer can be directly in touch with that grower.”
