  1. I am familiar with Leid’s. They had a large in ground nursery – B and B plants. They also had a large maintenance division of about 34 crews at one time. They also had landscape installation crews. One of the thing they were known for was large pieces of expensive outdoor art in the garden center.

    They did not grow annuals or many perennials. They also were in a relatively affulent area but not overly populated withlarge tracts of farmland close by.

    Perhaps I am wrong but they were on an ANLA tour when it was in Wisconsin many years ago.

  2. I contacted Spring Hill nursery becaue i thought they had some Simpos computer equipment for sale. They were just closing the retail store and continuing with the huge mail order operation.

    They were not interested in selling any equipment.

  3. Spring Hill Nursery Garden Center has closed and in its place the Tipp City Catalog Outlet Center will be open seasonally offering closeouts from multiple Gardens Alive (Spring Hill Nursery parent company) catalog brands. Perhaps they will continue to use the garden center equipment? By the way, the Tipp City Catalog Outlet Center will include merchandise from Bits and Pieces, The Paragon, TouchStone, Spilsbury, Images of America, Room Service Home, Spring Hill Nurseries, Gurneys Seed & Nursery, Gardens Alive, Henry Field’s Seed & Nursery, Breck’s Bulbs, Michigan Bulb Company, Thompson & Morgan Seeds, and Audubon Workshop.

  4. Well, that didn’t make me feel too warm and fuzzy. Yikes.

  5. No Tina, not warm and fuzzy but full of hope, and those who need help need hope the most as well as a little inspiration from knowing that they are not alone and that others have come through what they’re going through. Dealing with the fear associated to a deteriorating business situation is exhausting. A sense of hope that the situation isn’t hopeless makes it much better, though not entirely comfortable to think through problems, make decisions, gain confidence, and implement new plans. There is often a renewed sense of excitement about the business for clients that sometimes thought there was no way they’d make it. If there is a way to turn a business around, we’ll find it together.
