We have made the tough decision to sell Lily of the Valley (LOV). We (Paul & Melinda Carmichael) began growing & selling plants as LOV in 1982. As you will read below it is time for a major change. We both will be working full time to continue to develop Beech Creek Botanical Garden & Nature Preserve. Please come & visit us!
Dear Friends & Fellow Gardeners
We have always had a passion for educating others about plants, gardening and the health of the environment. In 1999, this passion became the driving force in the founding of a non-profit organization to develop a Botanical Garden in Northeast Ohio. In 2003, our newly formed, non-profit purchased 164 acres, thus Beech Creek Botanical Garden & Nature Preserve (BCBGNP) was born.
Here we are able to connect people with plants educating and inspiring people of all ages, especially our youth, about horticulture and the environment. Since 1999, we have been helping to develop BCBGNP and in the past few years it has grown to demand so much of our time that we have been basically running two businesses. It has become difficult to keep up with both entities and maintain our health and sanity.
We have been operating LOV for 30 years, it has been an awesome chapter, but we are ready for the change. The most difficult part of this transition is leaving all of We sincerely want to thank you for your many years of support! We hope that you will come & see us at BCBGNP! We will keep our LOV website and continue to sell our handmade LOV Products via mail order.
We are still growing & selling plants!
