We are experiencing an ongoing problem with our phone system and if you have been trying to call and it rings and rings, we aren’t hearing it! The problem is intermittent and you may be able to get through on a different phone, i.e. a cell phone instead of a land line. If not, please send us an email and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

Thank you for your patience.

Dear Valued Customers,

Please take the time to read the following guidelines to ensure a safe and pleasant sale experience for everyone.

At Russell Nursery we value the health and well-being of both our staff and customers and are taking important steps to help protect us all from the spread of COVID-19.

  • Staff and customers will be required to observe physical distancing.
  • We will continue to observe our regular, thorough sanitizing protocols, adding extra disinfecting stations.
  • During the sale we will have a traffic controller in the parking lot to ensure efficient traffic flow.

To facilitate shopping (and easier physical distancing) during this busy time please:

Come prepared! If you can, bring a list of the plants you seek. 

Be brief. Keep your visit to the fall sale as short as possible to help reduce congestion.

Delegate 1 person per household to visit the nursery. Please leave, in so far as possible, your children, pets and grumpy spouses at home!

Physically distance and wear a mask. The nursery is big and fresh air is abundant!  However, there will be times when congestion will be unavoidable. Keep 2m distance between yourself and others. We encourage everyone to wear a mask where physical distancing is difficult.

Stay home if you are not well or if you have had close contact with someone ill. Customers displaying symptoms will be gently invited to return home, to take good care of themselves, and to come back when they are symptom-free.

Be patient (and always be kind, calm, and safe!). Do not be offended if someone reminds you to physically distance. Remember that it takes two to tango and it takes two to practice good physical distancing!  Just say thanks and be glad that we care enough to remind each other.

Remember that gardening pursuits are healthy for mind and body! Russell Nursery is thrilled to be open and to be able to support gardeners everywhere.

We look forward to continuing to serve our members safely throughout the pandemic and beyond. And if the truth is told, we especially look forward to ‘beyond’ … like you, we can’t wait to see the end of this pandemic! In the interim, we’re buckling down. We are committed to getting through this ordeal safely and well! With your help, we’ll succeed. See you soon!!
