Today, after 130 years, Scarff’s Nursery is a family-owned wholesale nursery located in New Carlisle, Ohio. Presently growing B&B and container nursery stock on approximately 600 acres, we make available everything from evergreen shrubs to shade trees, ornamental trees and perennials. We are blessed with well drained, fertile soils and an abundant water supply to provide excellent growing conditions here in west central Ohio. Our winters can be cold and summers hot and dry, but our plants are hardy at least to USDA Zone 5. Our fondness for boxwood comes from Howard Scarff's selection and introduction of Wintergreen boxwood to the nursery trade during the 1940's. Wintergreen is probably the hardiest of all cultivated boxwood and blazed a trail for the hybridization and selection of many of the popular varieties in the industry today.
We ship to landscapers and garden centers from Denver to the east coast and from Wisconsin through Kentucky. The nursery is known for the uncompromising quality and care that goes into every plant grown and sold. We welcome customers to visit and tour our operation; please call prior to arrival. We maintain an array of B&B inventory above ground for summer availability to go along with nearly 20 acres of containers that are available year round and also utilize a network of other growers across the country to source all types of plant material in order to serve as a single source for your needs. We maintain an ownership in a successful B&B operation in southern Tennessee that produces beautiful flowering dogwood, hydrangea, boxwood, viburnum and much more.
We are under the direction of the fifth generation of the Scarff family and look forward to passing a successful operation on to generation number six. As Scarff's Nursery enters its third century of operation, the focus remains on service, quality and the advancement of the horticultural industry.
