Milton Schaefer operates Schaefer Nursery,
which he established in 1977. Our liners are rooted under mist in soil and grown outside, where they
naturally build up food reserves and acclimate themselves slowly to our severe
winters. Consequently, we produce a naturally hardier, healthier plant,
ready to grow off more quickly and better. They are undisturbed in our outdoor
beds until we harvest them. We try to dig and pack the day you request
them shipped. We have cold storage facilities to keep the plants healthy,
fresh, and dormant if you need them later in the spring because of geographic
We carefully pack your liners with the roots wrapped in
sphagnum moss and the tops separated with excelsior. They are then packed
in polyethylene in wax lined boxes.
We would like to cordially invite you to visit our nursery. We are
located in Winchester, Tennessee. Winchester is between Nashville and
Chattanooga, about 15 miles west of I-24. Please call us first so we can
avoid unnecessary delays for you.
We appreciate your business and will try our best to keep you well satisfied
with our quality and service. If you ever have any complaints, we will do
whatever is necessary to give you complete satisfaction.
