Meyer Nursery occupies about 400 acres of fields combining a variety of soils,
slopes, and growing environments. These combinations are at once a scheduling
head-ache and an advantage. We can choose the best fields for growing each
variety for optimum root structure and overall plant health – high quality.
Plant and Soil Health: Soil quality is a key component. Building soil health is an
on going process: rotating commercial crops, cover crops and applications of
dairy solids. This is a year round activity and contains a perpetual learning curve
as new information comes out of our universities, extension agents, and research
The long growing season of the Willamette Valley combined with our excellent
growing fields help to grow strong, healthy plant material.
Meyer Nursery buys in most of the seedling stock for our production needs.
Stock is bought from many of the local and regional growers. Some trees are
grown from seed for better root to transplant. By 2005, Meyer Nursery will be
planting some of their own home grown seedlings.
