Weston Rewilding

We are growing again!

The urge to get the grow operation back up and running had been in the back of Peter Mezitt’s mind ever since the large scale 540 acre field grow operation was shut down in 2007. As President and CEO of Weston Nurseries, Peter knew the kind of impact that we already brought to the community as a company, and the power we had to make a change for the better. In 2020, we dusted off the cobwebs and the grow operation was reintroduced. As new challenges arose for all in the industry between sourcing the plants, means of transportation, and limited workforce, we were still able to produce 20,000 perennials. Each year we increased production and were able to learn from experience and adapt for the next season ahead.

During this 2022 growing season, we had the ability to increase our production to approximately 33,000 plants, from 28,000 plants in 2021. We still grow a variety of perennials, native trees and shrubs. This year, we decided to start our own native plant movement called ‘Weston Rewilding’. Our goal is to provide the community, state, and beyond with stunning native plants that are sourced from our ecoregion. We are growing true natives that provide benefits for people, other plants, insect biodiversity, wildlife, soil systems and so much more. With growing interest in the community, between homeowners, landscapers, and businesses, the demand for native plant sales are up, and we are ready to join the movement. People have realized, it is not too late to change the way we think about natives in the landscapes, and how we can provide a brighter, more colorful future for generations to come. As humans we have the power to make an incredible impact on our environment; good or bad. We believe in doing the right thing when it comes to the choices that are in our control; such as the way we design our landscapes. We need to resort back to our traditional landscapes that once shaped us. We owe it to Mother Nature, to nurture her and change her only for the better.
