Rosie’s was born from the hard-work and love of the Hughes family. Owners Kevin and Mary Beth Hughes never could have imagined the growth they would experience when they purchased their first piece of property, a small lot bordering College Avenue, back in 1982. At the time, Kevin operated a one-man grass-cutting business and had recently found that he had a knack for landscaping as well. To make use of the land during winter months, Kevin and Mary Beth sold Christmas trees off the lot and put a sign out front advertising themselves as “Rosie’s Christmas Trees.”
With lots of help from family and the beautiful community of loyal Rosie’s customers, the business has expanded to cover over twelve acres with greenhouses, nursery stock, pottery, fountains and garden accessories. Rosie’s has a very happy, helpful staff, many of whom have been with us for more than 20 years. Everyone looks forward to the challenge of making ourselves and our garden center better every year. We are all very proud of what we do here.
