Sad news this week: Word on the street is that Rick Hedrick of The Plantsmen Nursery, near Ithaca, will not be reopening for business this spring. There's a chance, however, that a new owner could take over soon—though probably not soon enough for this year, seeing as it's already February 19.
The good news is that Barbara Bryant, Rick's right hand woman for years, will stay in Ithaca's nursery scene. Michaleen's, just around the corner, has snapped her up.
For those who are planning to attend our annual Odyssey to Ithaca: Never fear. We are busy finding suitable alternatives to our traditional stop at The Plantsmen.
