A new business will open in Greenville on “Small Business Saturday” this weekend.
The Evergreen Plant Company is located in former location of the Rainbow House on Third Street, across from the Kaskaskia College Greenville Education Center. The Evergreen Plant Company is owned and operated by Janie Nelson, who moved to Greenville when her husband Breck, began working as the Executive Director of the Greenville SMART Center.
Nelson said Breck used to work in landscapinig and her family owns a nursery in Peoria, so they decided to put that background to use in offering customers a hands-on experience. She said they specialize in indoor gardening, with plant such as houseplants, succulents, and cacti. You can select a plant, pick out a pot, and use the potting bar to pot your own piece. Dirt is free and you can decorate the top of your plant with rocks. The Nelsons also hope to rent out the business space to the community for special events.
