Description

Looking to establish a wholesale perennial and specialized bedding plant growing operation with a carefully selected inventory line of perennials and specialty annuals based upon existing needs of both retail and commercial construction sectors of the green industry. 
 

I have been working in the green industry for over 20 years and currently work as Vice President for Winterberry Gardens, a retail garden center, grower and landscape construction company located in Southington, CT. Working throughout all facets of the company, from greenhouse set-up, overseeing our growing operations, employee management, financial operations, and customer service. I also serve as the sole plant buyer for all commercial landscape construction projects which has allowed me to gain firsthand insight to identify where market trends are heading and what plants are needed. I also currently serve as the President of the Connecticut Greenhouse Growers Association and am an avid beekeeper.
