The forerunner of Dayton Nurseries,
Nortondale Nursery was started in 1956 by Del Dayton by planting Norway
Spruce Christmas trees on his property in Norton and harvesting and
selling Scotch Pine Christmas trees at the site which is now Wolf Creek
Del and his brother-in-law Gene
expanded the cut Christmas tree business to include a nursery and
landscape business in the late 1950s. Because of time
constraints due to performing his work from his main employer, Barberton
Laundry, Del did not do much with the business until his son, Tom,
became interested in 1972 in which the planting began again.
In May of 1973, Tom and Del started
selling Azaleas along with other nursery stock combines with selling
produce in summer that they grew except for the sweet corn that came
from Seiberling farms in Norton.
Tom graduated from the
Agricultural-Technical Institute with an associates degree in
Horticulture with studies continuing in greenhouse management, landscape
design and plant propagation through his mentor, John Rovestein, who
earned his degree and knowledge in Boskoop, Holland.
As the business grew, the original
site just south of Norton center was land locked and not conducive for
In 1990, Tom purchased 75 acres north
of I-76 in Norton of which he still retains about 33 acres on which site
the nursery and garden center today. Toms vision of a grower type
garden center is still going with our ever expanding palette plants to
meet customers needs and desires.
The nursery was opened that year
on the 40-acre site at 3459 Cleveland-Massillon Rd. in Norton, Ohio.
That's right, 40 acres.
