Our Roots: Pratts Nursery opened in 1948 after Fred and Blanche Pratt purchased this land from Blanche’s Uncle. The land had 5 acres; they began growing plants on approximately 3.5 acres of land. Fred enjoyed working the land and growing his nursery stock to sell to homeowners throughout the county. Fred also enjoyed making peoples lawns flawless. Customers use to tell people “He can make grass grow on a golf ball!” He put in numerous amounts of lawns, throughout the county and surrounding areas for over 50 years.
While Fred was out trying to make grass grow on a golf ball, if you stopped out to pick out some plants, you would always find Blanche here to greet you! She would often be in the nursery potting up new plants, pulling weeds, or working in her rose garden. She was always ready to assist and give ideas on what people should plant. She would often draw up landscaping’s for customers that wanted something unique and different for their properties.
The Future: Starting in the 1980’s & to the present day, Phyllis their daughter was and is still often found doing some of the same tasks her mother used to do around the nursery. In 2001 Fred passed away, Blanche followed in 2002 they passed their legacy onto their grandson (Phyllis’s son) Jeremy Kobialka. Jeremy was 19 years old when he took over the business and is still in charge today. There have been three generations of Nurserymen and women in our business. Jeremy continued to grow the business into what it is today. Working very hard to restore and maintain the Nursery’s presentation. In 2008 Jeremy married his wife Stephanie, who now too does many of the same nursery work that Blanche did. This year marks our 64th year and we have done some more changing to our business. We have started a gift shop in the old supply shop Fred and Blanche had and Jeremy has discontinued doing installations and maintenance of plants. With Jeremy discontinuing that portion of our business, so that our main focus can be you, the homeowner. We now hope to assist with the “do it you self” installations where our expertise can make you home look professional done, without the big bill. We are an every changing business, but Pratts Nursery will always be a pillar of the community with their family roots to thank!
