Lawrenceburg, Indiana: Gardens Alive, Inc. is proud to announce its purchase of IGP assets of Iseli Nursery Inc., and Weeks Roses, Inc. The acquisition of these two premier horticultural companies will compliment and expand the current offering of top quality products from the Gardens Alive! family of brands.
Iseli Nursery, Inc.
Iseli Nursery, located in Boring, Oregon has been in business since 1975. Iseli is North America’s premier wholesale provider of high quality, unique conifers and Japanese Maples. Iseli will operate as a stand alone wholesale business as well as provide the Gardens Alive’s mail order brands with additional product offerings, giving customers an even larger selection of the best ornamental trees and shrubs.

Their long list of awards attests to their dedication to new hybridizing work – something near and dear to Gardens Alive.
