New Flowers, 3rd Generation and Opportunities from Wenke Greenhosues

So I was working in my office the other day and feeling a bit overwhelmed.  It had been a long day with so many different issues and things to get done.  So I took advantage of the one thing that really helps to relieve the stress.  I went for a walk through the greenhouse where there are acres of beautiful plants growing and the sun is shining in.  It's something that can certainly help cheer up any day!  I'm sure that many of you reading this can relate to how uplifting it is to be around flowers.  And yes, we do have flowers looking beautiful even now in early March.  It won't be long before the snow is gone and spring is here in Kalamazoo too.   


We're looking forward to opening the garden center again April 1st with cheerful early spring annuals, perennials and vegetables.  We'll have our full assortment by April 22nd.  Quick Classes will continue every Thursday from 6-7 and all are welcomed.  We have several events planned for the spring including a tour of our production greenhouse on Saturday April 13th, the famous New Variety & Wine Tasting event on Friday, April 26th and new this year, an Iris Society Flower Showcase on Friday, May 24th.  We hope you can join us!


Learn about "hybrids" /where new flowers come from and the change to the 3rd generation of our family business in the articles below.  You can also read about fundraising opportunities for your non-profit organization and employment opportunities from Wenke Greenhouses.  


We hope you enjoy the last part of winter with anticipation of spring!
