Our History

Since August Carl Oelschig founded the nursery in 1882, we have been family-owned and operated.

Oelschig Nursery: Our Beginnings

Oelschig Nursery, Inc. has been a Savannah GA tradition within the horticulture business for over a century. A deep love of and unshakable faith in the greenhouse industry has kept the Oelschig Corporation firmly rooted and growing strong since 1882 when August Carl Oelschig emigrated from Halle, Germany, to the United States. After a brief stay in Long Island NY, August ventured down South to open a nursery business in Savannah GA. Within a few years, Oelschig's business had flourished. By the early 1900s, Oelschig Nursery was the first U.S. producer of field-grown roses and the world's largest shipper of rubber plant cuttings.
