45 years ago, Margie and Judson Wingard didn’t set out to create a big, award-winning business. It developed out of their love of plants and their desire to help others enjoy them just as much as they did. 

 

The seed was planted in the late 1960s, when the Wingards began propagating azaleas for their yard. Thanks to their green thumbs, they found themselves with more than they could use, so they set up a roadside stand with a hand-painted sign advertising "azaleas for sale 50 cents." (CLICK HERE)
