It all began over 90 years ago with a Tuberous Begonia.

In 1926, Carlton Lowe started his catalog order business in Bainbridge, Ohio; built around the Tuberous-Rooted Begonia, a flower he fell in love with while stationed in Europe during World War I.

In the mid-1950’s, Bud and Ernestine Griff purchased the business from Carlton Lowe.  They quickly learned what was needed to grow Lowe’s Greenhouse and did so until the second generation of Griff’s, Bud Jr and Lou took over in 1974.

In the 1990’s Jeff and Mary Lynn Griff took ownership of what is now the Lowe’s Greenhouse of today. Jeff grew up here, so this place is home; in fact his childhood home still exists on the property.

Lowe’s Greenhouse has come a long way over the years, now offering annuals, perennials, trees, shrubs, landscaping services, a full-service florist and expansive gift shop. However, we still offer that beloved American Hybrid Tuberous Begonia, just as Carlton Lowe did for so many years.
