Scott & Dianna King
Scott and Dianna reopened 13th Street Nursery in March of 2018. Their priority has been to carry on the quality of products and service Salem has known for decades.
Dianna has been gardening most of her life, has a degree in Natural Resource Management from Oregon State University (OSU), and implements sustainable gardening practices at home. She recently completed the OSU Master Gardener course and learned additional information about sustainability. Owning a nursery has always been her dream. Dianna has worked for the State of Oregon for 20 years, is well known in the Salem community, and looks forward to this next opportunity in her life.
Scott has known 13th Street Nursery and been a customer for almost 20 years. It has always been a great place to stop in to say hello and buy beautiful plants or gifts for his wife Dianna.
Scott has been in the business end of working with many companies in Salem for over 20 years and looks forward to working with them as a store owner.
When Scott and Dianna saw that the nursery was closing in the summer of 2017, it was at that moment they were hoping to take over for Karen and Glen Maki. Knowing there has been a nursery on that corner in Salem Oregon for almost 30 years makes it an icon, and they just had to find a way to keep it there. It took them over a year to make it happen and they know this opportunity is going to be something very special.
Their passion for their business is obvious to anyone who has visited the nursery.
