Twelve years ago in Steve Buckee's greenhouse... Steve was a tenant-turned-family-friend who raised succulents and cacti here in Oregon. He established a thriving greenhouse and business called Betty's Bloomers, supplying retail chains and selling to individual customers in the greater Portland area. The best thing about Steve's greenhouse? That he lived in it. Yep, Steve had a carved out a simple living space amidst a plethora of growth and beauty. When I first visited his greenhouse, I unknowingly stepped into my dream.
This ignited in me a passion for plants that would eventually become my business. Soon after that visit, I met my husband (also a plant lover) and we started collecting plants - not to sell, just because we loved them.
