Business is blooming at Olmsted’s Nursery on Viking Avenue

POULSBO — Olmsted’s Nursery is up and running at its new location on Viking Avenue in Poulsbo, and owner Sean Olmsted says his new spot is blossoming into a hot spot for gardening fanatics, landscapers, do-it-yourselfers and … lovers of Mexican food?

On April 27, Olmsted’s Nursery opened its new location on Viking Avenue NW, after moving from its previous location on the corner of State Route 305 and NE Hostmark Street in Poulsbo. Before that, Sean and Veronica Olmsted operated Clear Creek Nursery from 1997 to 2011.

Olmsted’s new location boasts a verdant plethora of plants, trees, shrubs, flagstones and other landscaping accouterments that offer visitors the opportunity to turn their front yard or garden into a lush jungle. The community in Poulsbo, Olmsted said, has been very receptive to what Olmsted’s Nursery brings to the table.

“We love the community. The community keeps us going and it’s an amazing kind of give and take,” Olmsted said. “I think we provide a pretty neat service to people because we have the fresh produce and they love it.”

In addition to selling fresh produce, often from local growers, Olmsted’s also boasts a selection of beer and wine onsite as well as a Mexican food truck conveniently parked toward the front of the property.

“We have an onsite, permanent, trained chef with a Mexican food truck here,” Olmsted said. “Wednesday until Sunday, he’s open and he’s got a line 10-deep now. It’s authentic Mexican food, amazing food.”

Olmsted was also quick to point out that his nursery is a big hit with the kids too, recommending that the youngsters come and check out the koi pond near the front. Visitors are also welcome to feed the 30 koi and 200 goldfish calling the pond home.

Olmsted’s Nursery is located at 19700 Viking Avenue NW in Poulsbo.
