George and his wife Lynda started Millcreek Gardens in February of 1978 after graduating with a B.S. degree in Agriculture from The Ohio State University, specializing in Horticulture. He leads the day to day operations as our General Manager. His outside interests include gardening, biking, tennis, and hiking.
George has served on the Board of Directors of the Ohio Nursery and Landscape Association and the Perennial Plant Association.
Millcreek grew from Lynda and George’s vision and desire to provide high quality plants to the Ohio Valley Region. Lynda in particular had a passion for herbs; being a wonderful cook she loved to use them in her kitchen. Wanting others to have the same opportunities, Lynda developed Millcreek into a pioneer in the industry as one of the first nurseries in our region to provide herbs on a wholesale basis. Lynda was our herb grower for many years and our company’s success today is a direct reflection of her influence, expertise, and vision. Lynda passed away on December 24, 2018.
