A garden center that sells in bulk to catalog and online gift retailers is turning over a new leaf as the owners of nearly 40 years sold the business at the start of the month.
Marlborough Greenhouses Inc., a wholesaler with facilities on Jaffrey Road and Water Street, is now run by Annette Novak, an existing employee who bought the company from Diane and Dale LaCasse of Jaffrey on Sept. 1 and is now its president.
"I knew shortly after joining Marlborough [Greenhouses] and beginning to apprentice with Dale that this was the career I'd been looking for," Novak of Troy, said in an email.
