May’s featured nursery is J&H/Johansen Greenhouse in O’Neill and Norfolk, Nebraska! Johansen Greenhouse was founded by Mardell and the late Eldon Johansen in 1977. When the produce production grew, the knowledge to start plugs for field planting was learned, and the first greenhouse went up soon after. Then shortly customers showed an interest in purchasing plants, and in 1987 the decision to start Johansen Greenhouse was made. Mardell and Eldon continued their horticulture education at Oklahoma University 1988 and 1989. 10 years later Rhonda Johansen-Hoefer, (the youngest daughter) started working full-time after the death of Eldon in 1997.
J&H/Johansen Greenhouse holds several fun events throughout the year, but will be holding a ladies night this coming week at the both locations.
- May 6th from 3-7 p.m. in Norfolk
- May 12 from 3-7 p.m. in O’Neill
