The nursery began in 1929 as a hobby for Emmett Machen, when he had time between buying, planting and harvesting oysters in the Mobjack Bay. From these early days of growing and hybridizing camellias, the nursery began to grow when John L. Machen, Sr. joined the company in 1958. Instituting a program of field grown, woody ornamentals, he and the nursery soon became known for its hollies, magnolias and Japanese maples. John L. Machen, Jr. joined his father in 1982 and began an expansion of the container operation. John Lee has specialized in Hosta and has introduced a number of named varieties to include Hostas 'Patriot', 'Minuteman', 'Night Before Christmas', and 'Liberty'. George Machen joined the Mobjack team in 1992 and has continued to charge the field division by expanding the P/P growing area.
Today, years after the backyard beginning, the nursery is growing plants on 25+ acres of container production, has moved into water / bog plants and has over 200 acres in field grown material. The product being produced today is a dynamic mix of perennials, flowering shrubs, grasses, trees and aquatic plants. We are a continuing source of color and we are known for growing the newest, slightly unusual and often hard to find plants.
