Our Roots—Since 1913

Our nursery’s roots began in Garfield, NJ, where Austrian immigrant Herman George Rohsler started growing ornamental plants for the landscape. Around 1925, he purchased 100 Franklin Turnpike from the Tremain family and opened the Allendale Nursery location. In 1940, the Garfield nursery located at 106 Hartman Avenue was sold. Until that time, both nurseries were in operation.

Herman Albert Rohsler and Marion “Lin” Linwood-Rohsler took over the nursery in 1955 and are responsible for transforming the nursery into what it is today.

This was the building that stood in the same place as the current garden center. The original burned down in the early 1920s; all that remained were the two chimneys that the garden center was built around in 1969.
