Oelschig Nursery, Inc. has been a Savannah tradition within the horticulture business for over a century. A deep love and unshakable faith in the greenhouse industry has kept the Oelschig Corporation firmly rooted and growing strong since 1882 when a 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 and by the 1900’s Oelschig Nursery was the first U.S. producer of field grown roses and the world’s largest shipper of rubber plant cuttings. Through the next half century the business was divided between the family resulting in 3rd generation George Oelschig operating the George Oelschig Greenhouses.
Fourth generation family business owner Kurt Oelschig now runs the greenhouses with the same devotion and drive that built a business from a brick over 100 years ago. After receiving his Bachelor of Science in Agriculture from the University of Georgia Kurt stepped in the position of CEO and continues to uphold the Oelschig reputation of quality product lines and excellent service.
