Our Services:

We are a Retail Nursery
Take a tour of our tree farm and nursery at Trout Creek on one of our golf carts and personally select your own trees, palms and plants with an experienced nursery-worker at your side, or have a look around on your own — your choice! We have nursery professionals available to assist you with your plant purchases. Knowing which plants work in various situations ensures your plants the best possible growing environment so they will flourish with little care rather than constantly struggling to survive in the wrong location.
As a grower with over 45 acres in production, our plants are inspected quarterly by the Florida Department of Agriculture to ensure that you are getting the best quality plants available. We are also well aware of current plant problems to watch out for as well as how to treat them when they occur. Purchasing your plants from our nursery ensures that you always have a helping hand when needed. S&J is a member of the Florida Nurseryman and Growers Association with over 70 years of experience in plant care and maintenance.

We are a Wholesale Nursery (for landscapers)
Last minute requests are NO PROBLEM; same day service is available on both delivery and installation! We have six Bobcats available to deliver and install the larger items your customers want anytime, so there's no need to spend your time and money on rental equipment and you can concentrate on the rest of the job! We open early and stay late so you can pick up plant material for today's job at 7:30 in the morning or pick up for tomorrows job at 4:30 in the afternoon!*(explain) And we have people available to help you load to get you in and out fast. You'll save time and money!

We have great prices and a great selection. We carry mass quantities of everyday items used by our landscapers, and because we sell retail to the public, we have one of the best selections in town. If your customer wants it, chances are so do other gardeners, which means we stock it! Unlike most large wholesale nurseries, we carry the unusual plant items your customers are looking for as well.

Need help? Do You have customers asking for plants you’ve never even heard of? Are customers always asking you for your help with existing plant material, troubleshooting and maintenance questions you don’t have time for? Need to know what plants work in your customer's difficult areas? We can help! Purchasing your plants with S&J assures you a helping hand when you need one. With over 70 years of experience growing and maintaining plants, we know what conditions they like what they don’t and how to deal with them when things go wrong. In addition, your customers can access our website and see for themselves what went wrong and how to fix it with our FAQ's section.

Same Day/Next Day Delivery and Installation
Yes, you read it right! You can pick out your plants and trees and have them delivered or installed for you amazingly quick! Come by and see for yourself; sometimes we get to your home before you do!
• Delivery on plant material is priced depending on location and is a one-time fee for whatever you have on your order.
• Installation is priced per plant depending on plant size and is marked on the pricing signs and flags or can be priced by a sales associate. Installation fees are in addition to the delivery fee for your area.

A Few Things to Note with Installations…
• Buried utilities are the sole responsibility of the homeowner.
Prices are for installation into ready-to-plant areas only! Removals and transplants of existing plant material should already be done or can be done for you at additional cost. See your sales associate for details or email us the photos of shrubs and trees needing to be removed.
• All plants larger than 45 gallon (including palms 5 ft and over) must have 6-ft clearance for a Bobcat to get to the area. These are heavy-duty machines and they can and will damage sodded areas. If S&J is doing the installation, all fences, posts, plants, etc. must be moved prior to the scheduled delivery time.
• Plants being planted where trees have been cut down and the stumps ground out will require additional potting soil and, in most cases, will have to be planted in a raised mound. There are no exceptions! Moving the tree being planted over a few feet will not work, as the old tree’s root systems still affect the planting of the replacement tree.
• All plants should be hand-watered with a hose daily after installation. (When the top inch of the soil is dry to the touch it is ready to be watered again. Clay soils may not require daily water, so check before you water every time.) Detailed instructions on how to properly care for and water newly planted items is available upon request.
• All plants are guaranteed to be healthy at the time of purchase. Homeowners are responsible for their care after that point. These are live items and will not remain that way without proper care. You can call our office at 904-522-1786 and we will be happy to help you with any questions and concerns you may be having. Please don't hesitate to call.
