This week we are highlighting two associates; Sharon and Jean. Both of these talented ladies work in our Customer Service Department. Their expertise is designing and creating beautiful container plantings. Many of the gorgeous container gardens on display (and for sale) at our greenhouse are a result of these two pairs of hands.
When you visit us in the spring for our container workshops you’ll find them both hard at work helping our customers create their very own containers of living art. Sharon and Jean have both mentioned that their favorite workshop is the Holiday Porch Pot workshop (which is Nov 21-22 this year).
Sharon has been with America’s Best Flowers for 10 years and along with our dear friend Bonnie Marshall are the talented people responsible for establishing our Container Garden Workshops. These workshops have mushroomed into hundreds of excited customers coming to our greenhouse and learning the dos and don’ts about planting their own custom containers.
We also would like to acknowledge that Sharon launched our Commercial Planting Service.
Sharon’s favorite flower is the single flowering rose. She says ‘Home Run’ with its’ dark red single flowers is the best. Sharon enjoys working for America’s Best Flowers indicating it is ‘a breath of fresh air complete with beautiful flowers and good friends’. In her spare time she enjoys designing and making custom jewelry.
Jean has been with America’s Best Flowers for 4 years working in Customer Service, assisting in Custom Design and also helping with the container workshops. Jean has always worked in Customer Service, it is her favorite area because it allows her to have contact with customers and showcase our amazing flowers. She loves to see customers delight at their finished planting.
Jean loves the zinnia because there is so much color and they blossom well into fall. She enjoys cooking, gardening and sewing when her busy schedule permits. Jean especially enjoys the people and being in such a beautiful place. She loves returning to America’s Best Flowers every spring and smelling ‘spring in the air’.
