It's a win-win that more than 419 agencies have utilized in the 61 years and three generations the nursery has been in operation. TN Nursery has never charged for its public service contributions, and it's a tradition the family plans to continue. The nursery recognizes the humanitarian benefit of the results of such research, which has led to potential breakthroughs in crop loss prevention and plant hybridization -- and highlights the accomplishments of academic programs specializing in plant studies on its website. Projects to which TN Nursery and its affiliates have contributed include university experiments, wetland mitigation, government tests, and lab science programs.
