Biggs started his family business at his kitchen table potting petunias. It has grown to several greenhouses where he and his son, Jake, plant fall mums and pansies and a wide variety of spring annuals. Biggs likes to tell customers who ask if the geraniums have arrived that he doesn’t get the plants delivered, “We grow them right here.”
Morris has a degree in horticulture and landscape design from the University of Tennessee. With his wife, Debbie, son Mark and 25 associates, design, plant and install landscape projects. They build water features, patios and are irrigation and landscape lighting contractors.
The Morris’ have a passion for what they do and strive to create a garden oasis that their customer will enjoy for many years.
Biggs Greenhouses, Morris Nursery, Peach Grove Nursery and Zimm’s Nursery will be present to answer questions and to provide materials for your spring planting. There will be door prizes and refreshments.
Admission is free.
