Mary has been with us since 2004. Mary couldn’t help but be a gardener. Both of her grandmothers were garden club members and both spent time instilling their love of gardening into Mary. Both Grandmothers grew African violets so naturally violets are Mary’s first love! The violet collection she has at home is beautiful. One of Mary’s responsibilities is answering the phone. If you have a question she’ll track down the answer. If you need to order a gift plant or gift card Mary would be glad to assist you!
