The main store at that time was about 1/3 its current size, and in the late fifties the Florist department was officially opened. The freeway arrived at the end of the fifties, which is why you enter what seems to be “the back”, and at that time the store was enlarged to accommodate the increase in business due to the rapid growth in the surrounding area.
The “Lazy K”, our gift house, was the home of the original ranch owners “the Kergen’s” and sat where the freeway is today. The name “Lazy K” comes from the cattle brand used by the family. The house was moved to its current position when the freeway was built and was used by Tom as the family home in his early days at the Nursery. In 1977 Tom opened the house up as a Gift Shop and it has become a source for exceptional giftware and home accessories.
