Jennifer Hobson

Raised in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, one of Jennifer earliest gardening memories is their half an acre vegetable garden where her Grandmother bring a paring knife and a salt shaker and cut things up for her.  And in the autumn, the border of shrub roses all along the front of our house had to be cut back and wrapped in burlap to protect them through the winter. An idyllic childhood of growing up on a farm with lots of acreage walking with Grandmother wearing her apron.

At their nursery, working alongside her gardening expert husband, Rick, the have assembled an outstanding staff of experienced nursery professionals who are eager to help select the plants and supplies that match any gardening style and desired results.  So just tell her what you have in mind, and she’ll help you bring it to life in your lawn, garden, planters, and pots!  JerichoNursery.com
