Owen Reeves, our outdoor and gardening expert, loves his job, as the garden center manager at Connon Nurseries because it allows him to do a little bit of everything. He can sit at his desk and do the administrative side of the business or he can be more hands on and “go out and get things done.” The great thing about Connon Nurseries is that they grow their own plants.
Reeves’s grew up in the industry, his family owned a gardening business, which is where he gained all of his plant life and gardening design knowledge. His girlfriend entered him in Marilyn’s search for an outdoor and gardening expert, and ever since he has been giving us great tips and advice on plants, gardens and outdoor fun.
Spring is the busiest time of year for him. It’s where he goes from four employees to over 40. A day in the life of Owen Reeves starts early in the morning and his days end with a nice cool pint of beer. Cheers to Owen for all the great advice!
