Gardening Program Touches on Tips from Near and Far

The Door County Master Gardeners’ Association will host a free public gardening program on May 11 at the Collins Learning Center at Crossroads at Big Creek beginning at 7 pm. The program, “The Jan and Glenn Show – the best of 2009,” will be presented by Jan Wos and Glenn Spevacek. From Bangkok to Chicago, Madison to Warsaw, the dynamic duo from Mayflower Greenhouse in Green Bay will review their travels of the past year and they will share new ideas gathered from near and far.

Jan Wos purchased Mayflower Greenhouses in Oneida 10 years ago and has transformed it into a destination garden store with regional appeal. Under Jan’s ownership, Mayflower has established itself locally and statewide as a leader in his niche of annuals. While most annuals have become commodity items, easily sold at discount stores, Jan has placed focus on hard to find varieties as well as the standards. Jan’s ability to harness the creativity of his staff and friends leads to a retail experience like no other.

Glenn Spevacek owns NEW Gardens, a consulting and marketing firm with an emphasis on garden-related businesses. Prior to beginning NEW Gardens, Glenn was the Executive Director of the Green Bay Botanical Garden. Each gardening season Glenn and Jan make a variety of gardening presentations throughout Wisconsin. Last year each of them spoke to over 2,000 people and have received high accolades from all.

The program is free and open to the public.
