Q: Is Port Kells Nurseries interested in buying trees, shrubs, from customers that are removing them from their yard?
A: Unfortunately we cannot risk buying any trees, shrubs, plants, etc. from an un-certified supplier. All of the suppliers we buy from must be certified as disease-free or else we risk losing our certification as a disease-free retailer. Once we lose our certification we become subject to random inspections. Also, with plants that have been established for more than one year, the likelihood of them surviving the transplant is extremely low.
The only thing we can recommend if to post them on craigslist or to call landscapers that maybe will be less concerned about disease. If all else fails and you are not able to find anyone to take the plants we do take plants in our compost bin for a fee.
