Home > History


The Garden Spot opened in the spring of 1961 by Joe and Ann Pischera.  Dad worked at a number of other jobs until the business took off in the late 60’s. Mom stayed at the store during the day until sons, Joe Jr. and Jim came home from school to help, so Mom could do all the many things that mothers need to do.  Dad had planted a few fields with shrubs and trees, but he mostly spent his time on the road going from nursery to nursery buying shrubs and other stock to resell. In 1975 Joe Jr. married and he and Margie took over the daily operation of The Garden Spot.  Dad and Mom moved to California to help her parents Jack and Mary Giulitto.  In the mid 70’s there was a slight recession and the nursery business was not as strong as it had been in the past.  Annual flowers seemed like the answer. Up went the first greenhouse! Joe and Margie learned on the fly, neither had any formal training in producing greenhouse material.  To this very day they are still learning.  Now the third generation is interested in pursuing a career in the Lawn and Garden business called The Garden Spot.
