My Great-Grandmother owned a greenhouse a half a block from here in the 1920's and 30's. Then my Uncle James Martin started this greenhouse on Western Ave. in 1949. Back then the greenhouse was much smaller and made of glass. It had pipes running through out it for steam heat. The bedding plants and vegetable plants came in flats made of wood, with 48 plants to a flat. People usually bought in increments of 6 or 12 plants. We had to dig the plants out of the flat then we would wrap the plants up in newspaper for them take home. Needless to say you didn't buy your plants unless you were going to plant them right away. The cabbage plants came bare root and we would dig a trench and put them in it, and dig up what ever amount people wanted. I say Thank Goodness for plastic! We work hard to give people a great plant for a decent price.
