Questions regarding Nursery License requirement?
The State of Ohio requires any person who grows, buys and installs nursery stock for the purpose of reselling or reshipping in Ohio to have an Ohio Nursery Stock Dealer’s Certificate or Ohio Certificate of Nursery Inspection (what we call a ‘nursery license’). Its purpose is to ensure that nursery stock sold to the public is inspected and certified to be pest free.
Brown’s requires you to submit a copy of your nursery license for our files prior to your first purchase and prior to login assignment if we cannot find your name on the Ohio Dept. of Agriculture’s listings of active nursery licenses. Other states have similar licensing requirements – you may provide the license from your own state where applicable.
