As a Greenhouse and Field Grower, we don't really talk about green initiatives. So what have we done to be more green?

Gardening uses lots of plastic. It's an unfortunate truth. There's plastic for the greenhouses, plastic for pots, plastic for trays, plastic everywhere. How can we be greener with all this plastic?

It is with great sadness that I must announce that George Rofner, owner of Richmond Nursery, son of Ludwig Rofner and Anna Spiegel, passed away peacefully in his sleep at the age of 73 during the early hours of the night on October 23rd, 2010. He leaves behind his beloved wife Claudia Rofner, daughter Debbie Rofner (Curt Millar), son Peter Rofner (Sue Secord), and cherished grandson Jakob.
