(STURGIS) – A lifetime love of gardening has led to a very successful business.

While growing up in White Pigeon, Kathy Stiles says she learned the love of gardening from her parents and her grandmother. As she grew up, that love continued, even though Stiles moved on to a career at Precision Speed Equipment.

But when her job became downsized, Stiles went back to school at Glen Oaks Community College and starting talking about a job centered around her love of gardening. Two years ago, she presented the idea during one of the Generate Sturgis Business Idea Contests, and Blumin Gardens sprouted from there. ...... {LISTEN}.

The ideas of Blumin' Gardens is that Stiles will come to your home and show you how to grow and care for flowers or even a garden. And if you are too busy, Stiles says she will do the work for you. ...... {LISTEN}.

If you would like to find out more about Blumin' Gardens, you can contact Stiles by calling 269-689-5751 or visit her in the greenhouse at Lonespruce Farms on West Fawn River Road in Sturgis.
