Welcome to Seely’s!
We don’t just sell plants. We sell horticulture along with them. If you like plants, you will be like a kid in the candy shop.
We are a full service landscape contractor as well; that provides a quality and creative performance to meet all of your landscaping and gardening needs. We design, build and install everything outdoors from patios, seating walls, fire pits and arbors to very, very large trees, water gardens, shade gardens, dwarf conifer gardens and low maintenance gardens. By having our own nursery, our variety and selection has no rival.
Roger Seely, owner of Seely’s Landscape Nursery, graduated from Ohio State University in Landscape Horticulture in 1969 with a minor in Landscape Architecture. After graduation, he served in the army and was sent to Germany. After being discharged from the army, he traveled Europe extensively; being able to speak French and German enabled Roger to visit and learn from many gardens that the typical tourist would not get to see.
Upon returning to the USA, he started German Village Landscape in 1970 and specialized in dwarf conifers for landscapes with minimum maintenance and designs that give that feeling of “That Old World Charm.”
In 1978, he started the German Village Garden Garage, a boutique garden center, which specialized in perennials, annuals, herbs (over 125 varieties), spring and summer flowering bulbs, water plants (first in Columbus to grow and retail water plants) and the use of tropical plants outside in the garden.
In 1988, he outgrew German Village, moved his design offices and garden center to Hilliard, Ohio and combined them with his existing wholesale nursery (Seely’s Plant Ranch) to form Seely’s Landscape Nursery.
In the early 90’s, with this newly expanded nursery, he began to incorporate a multitude of plants from the following groups into his landscape designs: spring bulbs, summer bulbs, tropical foliage and flowering plants, annuals, perennials, woody flowering shrubs (many with fragrance), wild flowers, shade and flowering trees, evergreens and dwarf conifers.
In the late 90’s, Roger; through his son Roger Jr.’s love for and interest in hostas; began to cultivate a propensity for shade gardening with a major emphasis on the use of hostas in combination with other shade loving plants. Seely’s Landscape Nursery now carries more than 800 varieties of shade plants. Over 600 of these shade plants are hostas. Roger is also proud of his extensive dwarf conifer collection, which range in age from 1 to 50 years old and are available to the retail public and wholesale trade.
In the early 2000’s, Roger, Sr.’s second son, Jered, came on board and allowed us to further enhance our construction design with his love for architecture and building. Our patios, seating walls, fire pits, walkways, arbors and outdoor kitchens reflect this love of constructing.
