US (MI): Hall's greenhouse turns 70

Hall’s Greenhouse on Carter Road in Elmwood Township opens tomorrow, April 30, for its 70th year. The Leelanau Ticker checks in with Nick and Allison Hall, the third-generation owners, to celebrate a big birthday for this and other Leelanau landmarks.

It’s warm, earthy, and fragrant inside the main Hall family greenhouse, with flowers and vegetable starters they started from seed looking healthy, happy, and ready for their big debut tomorrow.

This is a real “spring start-style greenhouse,” Nick Hall says, of the many locals who flock to Hall’s to begin their backyard gardens. “We’ve been growing plants and vegetables from seed since the end of February. Flowers and veggies run the gamut. We do geraniums, petunias, begonias, impatiens, and hanging baskets.” They grow 60 percent of the plants themselves and augment with stock from local wholesalers.

“Right now is the most frantic. If I had any hair, it would be falling out,” Hall says with a laugh at the behind-the-scenes cadence of the seasonal operation he bought from his parents, Joel and Kathryn Hall. They ran it for 30 years. Nick’s grandpa Harry Hall ran it with his wife Isabel for 30 years before that.
