About Us

Hermine started growing plants on her window sill and fire escape as a little girl in Brooklyn. In the 70's Roger was designing, creating working drawings and supervising construction of large building projects throughout the U.S. Hermine joined him to work on hospitals for Harvard University and a church in Boston. Hermine's passion for rare and unusual plants resulted in a tropical growing chamber in the basement of our Boston home. She started a mail-order business growing and selling her own home-grown plants. In 1979 the cold eastern climate drove us to explore southern climates, expanded our interest in Bamboo, Palms, Cycads, Sansevierias and moved us to California.
