TALBOTT NURSERY & POULTRY
WE AIM TO PLEASE!!
History of TALBOTT NURSERY & POULTRY Was first founded as: YE OLE BACKYARD NURERY over 40 years ago in Nacogdoches, Texas; right after I came back from the U.S. NAVY, and my tour in the Orient. I had just finished a Bachelor's Degree in Biology, and a Communications Master's Degree at Stephen F. Austin State University, and was looking for work! A Theta Chi Fraternity Brother, J. Roden, and I had been selling St. Augustine and Centipede Grass 6 days a week, while going to school full-time and working as Lab Techs at the local hospital(also full-time)…amazing what youthfullness can do…at 69, I can't quite keep that up any longer…chuckle!! A year or two later I changed the name to BACKYARD NURSERY, INC. Then after 10 more years, moved to Sam Rayburn, Texas; when economic times got rough!! For 25 more years I had retail establishments with a convenience store, Lakeside sales/rental of boats, jet skis, Charter Bass fishing, motel, RV park, and exotic game farm…..and I taught part-time, then moved to the Houston area and taught full-time at Community Colleges using my degrees, (by that time I had picked up other Master's work in both Educational Leadership and U.S., World, and Texas History). In 2010; I was laid off with the economic crunch and a dispute with an Asst. Dean, so I went back to "WHAT BRUNG ME", as they say in East Texas!!! All that time, growing most anything was a passion….from birds to plants! Now we specialize in ORCHIDS, BOUGAINVILLEA, HIBISCUS, and have now expanded to Edibles like Fruit Trees, Grape Vines, and Berry vines, and Citrus Trees. We also have Crape Myrtles, Roses, Azeleas/Camellias, Flowering and Landscape Shrubs and Trees, Ferns/Heuchera/Hosta, and Grasses and Ground Covers ….MOTHER NATURE has pretty well put us out of the Poultry Business...AS BANTAMS, DUCKS, GEESE, AND PIGEONS AT THE FARM are mostly for my pleasure and not so much for sale….WE'RE CUTTING BACK ON BIRDS AND EXPANDING OUR PLANT OPERATION WITH THE DEMAND…RIGHT NOW WE HAVE OVER 300 VARIETIES OF ORCHIDS, 50+VARIETIES OF BOUGAINVILLEA, AND 12+ VARIETIES OF HIBISCUS. We also have 30+varieties of Azaleas 12 or so of Camellias, and 40+ varieties of Crape Myrtles. We have over the last 4 months moved completely our physical site from New Waverly to Jasper, Texas...what an undertaking!!!! We welcome you to our site as well as extend to you an invitation to come and visit our location in Jasper, Texas 75951. We will answer any of your questions as best we know how, and if we don't know the answer…we'll send you in the right direction to find an answer or we'll go find it for you!! We will settle any misunderstandings or disputes with a smile and a Jimmy Buffet Song quote, (its after five o'clock somewhere)…We believe that."a return customer" is the life blood of a business; BUT don't get me wrong…I will also let you know "how the cow ate the cabbage", if you are expecting something for nothing…
HOPE YOU FIND OUR SITE TO BE WONDERFUL AND THAT YOU FIND THINGS YOU HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR AND NEEDING!!! THANKS FOR READING ALL…
John (J) and Cristy Talbott, Owner Planter, Waterer, Feeder, Propagator, Chief Cook and Bottle Wash!!
