Chad Museus loves his business. “Being in the greenhouse in the spring is one of the most exciting things you can do,” he says. "It’s the most fun environment you could ever work in…People always come in happy!”
Chad and his husband Tyler own Nature’s Edge Garden Center in Bemidji, where visitors are sometimes greeted by the couple’s year-old basset hound, Eleanor. Besides plants (including bedding plants, shrubs, trees, and perennials), landscaping, pottery, soils, and all kinds of garden supplies, they also offer classes (now online), delivery, and advice.
The greenhouse is temporarily closed due to the state’s stay-at-home order but Chad says they are “getting ready for May – hoping for the bright light at the end of the tunnel.”
In his KAXE/KBXE interview with Maggie Montgomery and Katie Carter (below), Chad covers tips for starting seeds, advice for kids and new gardeners, and reveals some new plants to try this spring. For more information, check out their website, their Facebook page, or Instagram.
