Growing with the Times: How Local Plant and Garden Companies Adapt to ChangeTuesday, July 03, 2018
A lingering winter chill squeezed the busy spring season for Central Kentucky’s plant and garden businesses into a few short yet robust weeks this year. But Lexington’s local garden centers, greenhouse nurseries and landscaping companies, many of which are multigenerational family businesses, are well-versed at adapting to changing conditions, whether they be market or nature-driven. A few have been doing so for more than a century.
“It was like we went straight from winter to summer,” said Janna Pemberton Schmidt, who runs Pemberton Greenhouses with her siblings, Ashley Pemberton Herndon and Colin Pemberton, and her husband, Jeff Schmidt. “It’s been a strong but fast year, because of the late freeze.”
The plastic-covered greenhouses at Pemberton, located off Georgetown Road, are loaded with cascading hanging baskets and long rows of bright geraniums, begonias and other popular blooming stock this time of year, along with packed tables of tropical palms, orchids and ferns. In July, the nursery will begin tendi... http://smileypete.com/business/growing-with-the-times/
WKU to close down the WKU Floral Shop next week - College Heights HeraldTuesday, May 01, 2018
WKU, said the charge to close the Floral Shop was led by Warren County Judge-Executive Michael Buchanon. Buchanon, according to business registration information filed with the Kentucky secretary of state's office, is the president of Deemer Floral Co., a local floral shop on Lehman Avenue in Bowling Green. Buchanon publicly commented on McKinney's status and said all the privately owned florists in the region have opposed WKU and "their publicly funded Flower Shop competing against privately funded taxpaying businesses." He said this feud has been ongoing and dates back to former President Gary Ransdell who, he said, often dismissed the objections of local flower shop owners. "WKU’s Flower Shop has had the use of publicly owned building facilities, floral products, equipment and supplies paid for with mine and your tax dollars, and delivered in University owned delivery vans with Official State license tags. - all paid for with taxes you paid.," Buchanon said in his comment. The Floral Shop is a revenue dependent program and these programs generate funds independently from the university. For the 2017-18 fiscal year, the shop was budgeted to generate and spend $275,000, according to the university budget.Buchanon also pushed back on the assertion made by McKinney that the shop's closure came as a result of Buchanon asking a favor of Governor Matt Bevin to pressure the university to close the shop. Buchanon said Bevin had nothing to do with the situation. The Herald has filed an open records request for email correspondence between Buchanon and the governor, as well as those in the governor's office, and reached out to his office for comment.
