Coastal Nursery was formed in 1984 by Jess and Donna Rodrigues. Since 1984 Coastal has expanded its operations into Watsonville, California by purchasing and leasing various growing facilities along the coastal corridor of the Monterey Bay.
During the course of operations, Coastal also formed Monterey Bay Heather as a DBA to market and sell its many varieties of Heather, becoming the largest heather grower in the United States for both cut and potted heather. Coastal is the only grower in the U.S. offering Italian Heather and the only remaining grower offering cut heather. We offer our cut heather from September through March offering various colors throughout the different months.
Coastal Nursery currently farms 200 acres (6 ranches) and specializes in growing various varieties of Heather in multiple colors and pot sizes. In addition, other popular products such as potted topiary Rosemary and Cypress trees are offered as tabletop decorations with a packaged decorative theme as gift items to our vendor’s retail buyers. Our pre-decorated plant products are creative and offered to our Vendors at realistic prices allowing Coastal to reach a national market for its crops.
Coastal Nursery has developed an excellent relationship with its buyers over the years. We are very proud that our buyers can depend on our word and our communication. Our customers often thank us for our excellent customer service.
