BUSINESS UPDATE: West Seattle Nursery closes

West Seattle Nursery – the only business of its kind on the peninsula – has decided to close, though it wasn’t required to. Thanks to Marie and Nicole from WSN for sharing their message to customers:

We have made the difficult decision to close West Seattle Nursery until Thursday, April 9th. However, any curbside pick-up or delivery orders (that were) received by 5 pm today (Sunday, March 29th) will be fulfilled over the next few days.

We need to do our part to fight this thing and to not invite our customers to take unnecessary chances during this critical period.

The nursery may be closed, but we can’t wait to see you again and get back to gardening together.

Thank you so much for your patience, loyalty, and love!

Take care and stay safe.
The West Seattle Nursery Team

    I love this place but it’s about time. On my solo daily walks through the neighborhood I always see crowds of people here picking up unnecessary plants. Thank you for closing and doing your part. See you when you open!

    I visited them a couple of weeks ago figuring they may not be open at some point. I have to say the yellow, white, purple, and red pansies I picked up really added a nice splash of color to the deck I look out at all day while at my computer. They definitely lift my spirit!

    Stay safe – its planting time for the garden, I disagree with your statement plants that produce food are not unnecessary, further flowers that brighten a yard during these trying times can uplift the spirit.

    Yep, I have been surprised by the amount of people in there shopping before and after the Stay Home order cake info effect. Better late than never but should have been closed  last week.

    They deliver. I just ordered a lot of soil and beauty bark. No need to crowd anywhere.

      The announcement said deliveries only made for orders received by March 29.  You had my hopes up there for a second that they were doing online ordering.

    Every time I passed by the nursery, I always saw people practicing social distancing. And agreed that providing vegetable starts and spring flowers are necessary for healthy body and mind!

    Regrets. Gardening has been my major respite from recent events. While I have enough going on in my own plantings, anyone else without a jungle to tame would be well served to be making additions to their landscape. I hope you are able to open again soon, to help us maintain our personal spaces and make them just that much brighter and pleasant.Cheers.

    Plants are, too, necessary. I hope they will be able to reopen before the planting season is over.

    Hoping they reconsider an on-line delivery only model.  Clearly the e-mail basis wasn’t working, but maybe if they don’t have foot traffic they could do more phone?  Critical planning period and I’m removing a bunch of sod for veggies which I’m anticipating needing.On a broader scale, think maybe the WS CoC should consider some sort of consortium effort to enable small businesses to move quickly to an on-line mode.  I am in discussion with SAP to determine whether their offers in the commerce space could be extended to a small CoC community.

    That’s a great idea.  Online ordering and payment are becoming a necessity right now, and a lot of businesses have neither the financing nor the skill set to put such options in place.

Sorry, comment time is over.
