Barb's Greenhouse selected after Master Gardener tour

Four Master Gardeners from Todd County travel on a three-day tour each year to select the plants they wish to plant in their own gardens.

This year, after many visits to nurseries between Long Prairie and Hackensack, they selected Barb’s Nursery and Greenhouse in Hackensack as their primary nursery of purchase.

University of Minnesota certified Master Gardeners Wannetta of Eagle Bend, Sandi of Sauk Centre and Betty and Bonnie, both of Long Prairie, said Barb Sherman, greenhouse owner, and employee Carrol Wedin were extremely helpful with various ideas and that the flower selection and health of the plants were fabulous.

They also said the country style of nursery was charming and quaint.

The four gardeners host the Todd County Gardeners Day and hold a fundraising county plant sale to finance the event. They also coordinate the Master Gardeners booth at the Todd County Fair where they educate people and exhibit many plants.

One Master Gardener said they are always learning, and they learned new concepts at Barb’s Greenhouse.
