Dear Friends:

After 25years of running this nursery it is time to be thinking about retirement and accordingly I wish to announce that Michele and I are selling Russell Nursery to Susan Tice and Laurel Rassenti, two of our senior staff, effective January 1st, 2018.

Between them they have more than thirty-five years of experience managing the nursery and I cannot stress enough that your shopping experience at Russell Nursery will be the same as always. The same friendly faces and the same quality plants and products will be here for you at the same location and with the same hours of operation.

I will be working closely with Susan, Laurel and the nursery staff during the coming year to make the transition as smooth as possible.   I’ll still be around after that as I plan to continue helping out during the busier times for the foreseeable future.

On a personal note, I wish to thank each and every one of you, from the bottom of my heart, for your patronage over the years.  Building Russell Nursery has been my life’s work and I am proud, grateful and humbled by the result.  I am so very glad of the chance to have met so many wonderful people over the years.  People who love plants are the best kind of people and we could not have asked for finer customers and co-workers.

This is what could happen to you if you don’t get around to taking down your Christmas wreath.
We should all be so lucky!
