Gosha Greens, which delivers wholesale plants and trees to landscapers, garden centers and retailers across Florida, has officially opened its newest nursery. This marks the second location for Gosha Greens, the first being in Homestead, Florida. The Gainesville nursery will specialize in growing and storing native Florida plants and trees.
Gosha Greens owner, Kevin Kalantari, and his father, Reza Kalantari, recently purchased the 20-acre property as a long-term investment for field-grown, native plant material to be used in landscaping. They are currently in the process of planting the nursery with three- to seven-gallon sized trees and setting up an irrigation drip system.
Once the trees have reached maturity, they will be ready for sale and delivery all throughout Florida.“Our strategy is simple: plant smaller trees and care for them until they are full-grown,” explained Kevin. “We’ve seen firsthand the increased demand in our industry for native, field-grown trees. We’re going to use this new land to expand our inventory to better serve our landscaping customers.”
Some of the diverse material to be grown at the second nursery includes oak trees, magnolia trees, hollies, cypress, and oleanders. These are some of the most sought after, native trees in Florida, so they were the obvious choices when selecting inventory.
“This is a really exciting time for Gosha Greens,” said Kevin. “We’re expanding and growing throughout Florida. There’s no telling where we’ll be this time next year."
