Campbell’s Greenhouses started in 1983 when Betty and her late first husband, Mike Campbell, built their first, wood framed greenhouse that held 700 flats of marigolds and petunias. Campbell’s continued to grow, adding more buildings until finally reaching 35,000 square feet. Betty ran the greenhouses and raised their three children.
Since, Campbell’s has expanded to 120,000 square feet, including an 18,000-square foot retail garden center – a seven-bay, gutter-connected structure. The new store opened in 1999 with four bays, which was already too small, the following spring another two bays were added. The next year a shade bay was added, as. Andy and Betty both said the first year of merging the two businesses was not without its challenges. But once we passed that first year, everything just smoothed out and has been wonderful.
