As of April 20, 2020, the guidance from the governor’s office is that plant nurseries – including floral shops – selling live product will hereby be allowed to do curbside or delivery service only. They must take all necessary social distancing precautions and must continue to abide by the mass gathering rule. No customers are allowed in the facilities.

If you have nursery questions, call the New Mexico Department of Agriculture (NMDA) at 575-646-3207. Questions related to appropriate safety guidelines should be directed to the New Mexico Department of Health website or through the coronavirus (COVID-19) hotline at 1-855-600-3453.   

If already licensed through NMDA, plant nurseries and floral shops do not have to apply or register to take part in the curbside or delivery service.
