Flower & Bedding PlantsNurseries and Greenhouses
What started out as a hobby quickly grew into something unexpected for Ed & Ruth Adams. In 1952 a 100 square foot greenhouse was built to house orchids. Ed and Ruth's passion for orchids turned into a business when they began to grow cut flower orchids, and flowering potted crops for grocery stores and floral shops. They continued to wholesale these products until the original facility had expanded to 5,600 square feet.
In 1996, Kevin and Dana purchased Moss Greenhouses, Inc. from DeWitt and Carolyn. Under their direction, Moss Greenhouses continues to look to the future. Currently operating under 281,000 square feet of covered greenhouses, in addition to three acres of outside growing areas, Moss's facilities contain the latest in automated technology. We annually produce 180,000 flats, 350,000 containers and 37,000 hanging baskets. We sell to over 150 wholesale customers, mostly independent garden centers and grocery stores, within a 500 mile radius of Jerome. Our retail store is open March through September and serves walk-in customers throughout the Magic Valley.
