The Lazy Gardener is located on the Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory. We (Lynn & Dave Wilson) started out in 2008 by building a greenhouse on the back of the garage for personal use. Our property was an old gravel pit and the soil was mostly clay and rock. Amending the soil and growing our own plants was the most economical way to have a nice yard.
We grew too much and gave some away to other family members. It wasn’t long when friends and community members asked if we were going to sell any of our plants. So we built a pergola and began making hanging baskets to sell. This too went very well, so we closed in the pergola and built another greenhouse.
Long story short, today, we have four greenhouses, gardens of perennials, a Christmas Shop and a gift basket business. We couldn’t have done it without the support of our family. Our children and grandchildren have been a tremendous help, from building the greenhouses to planting the seeds! Nia:weh (Thank you)
