Meet Our Staff

Jim Whiting

Owner

I’ve been growing my business since 1972 and haven’t stopped! A deep interest in all types of plants grew into the production of trees, shrubs and perennials along with the establishment of the retail nursery and landscaping services. I love meeting people as they come into the nursery and helping them to find just the right plants for their project. Outside of the business, I enjoy fishing, the outdoors, my pets and spoiling my two grandchildren.
