Garden Shoppe Manager, Janice Schmidt is a trained horticulturist with a background in growing plants as well as stocking a great and interesting Garden Shoppe. She also oversees plant propagation for location into the historic gardens and for the sale of plants.
Other garden staff include a group of dedicated UF Master Gardeners, Bill Frye (pictured) and Debbie Hughes, Senior Horticulturist. The Garden Shoppe is staffed seven days a week during all open hours, so it’s convenient for casual and serious gardeners.
