(12.17.14) -April Zoellner met along the River Bend Trail with Mike Willman of the River District Development Foundation. The Zoellner family made a donation valued at over $1400 of trees and bushes that follow along a portion of the trail. April stated, "My dad, Russell, has always been charitable when it comes to running a business. Now I am working on running the greenhouse business that he built from the ground up. Russ suggested that I make a donation to the River Bend Trail. When I went and took a look at what they were doing with the trail I knew it would be a great way to contribute to our city. As I walked the trail I envisioned it with beautiful flowering trees and bushes alongside the trail. A few weeks later I was delivering a truckload of over 45 trees and shrubs. I selected some of my favorite flowering trees that would provide berries for the wildlife including Crabapple Trees and ornamental Toba Hawthorns. I selected shrubs that were native to our area and have decorative colored foliage or berries. With help from the Parks and Recreation Department they were quickly planted and thriving along the trail. At Zoellner’s Greenhouse we’re all excited for the development of the River Bend Trail and we look forward to enjoying it with our friends, family, community and future generations." For more information on the River Bend Trail, please go to their website:

(2.16.2012) - An update to our website is long overdue. Thanks for your patience. We have been busily working all summer, fall and winter on repairing the damage and cleaning up from the tornado that hit us last spring. I am happy to report that the reconstruction is nearly finished. We still have some interior work to finish, but everything is on track to turn into a "better than ever" experience this spring.

But actually... Spring is Here. We opened up (and filled up) our "Warm" greenhouse yesterday (Feb 15). For me, this marks the official opening of the growing season, and the unofficial start of spring. I know I'm not the only one who feels this way, since phone calls are already coming about spring planting!

See you soon!.
