Lincoln's newest garden center opened its doors on Monday.

Canoyer Garden Center, which has two locations in the Des Moines, Iowa, area and one in Papillion, has opened its new Lincoln store at 2601 Long Pine Road, near 98th and Van Dorn streets.

“Lincoln is a market we've looked at for years, even before Papillion,” said Kanoyer, whose parents founded the company in Griswold, Iowa, in the 1980s.

The store is located in a newly developed area on the eastern edge of the city limits, just northeast of the Firethorne Golf Club.

Kanoyer said he was considering two other potential locations, but after meeting with city officials decided this was the best place.

“We believe the city is growing this way,” he said, noting that there are a lot of new residential projects in the area.

The store, which will be open year-round, offers a wide range of flowers and other garden plants grown either on site in Lincoln or at one of its other locations. It also has a gift shop called The Greenhouse Market that sells planters, home decor, accessories, and gardening supplies.

While Lincoln residents are not without options when it comes to lawn and garden products, with specialty stores like Campbell's Nursery and Earl May Garden Center, and several large home improvement stores, Kanoyer said he sees plenty of room in the market for another product. option.

White House staff toured the Executive Mansion as flowers and trees began to bloom, signaling the arrival of spring to the nation's capital. Parts of the North Lawn, South Lawn, and Rose Garden were featured stops, and the views of the Washington Monument and Jefferson Memorial were an added bonus on this sunny Thursday morning. Public tours inside and outside the White House are available and resumed last year after a more than 14-month hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic. Annual fall and spring tours open the doors to the more than 200-year-old gardens, the oldest continuously maintained landscapes in the United States, the National Park Service says. When First Lady Pat Nixon began her tours of the garden in the spring and fall of 1973, the White House itself was still open to visitors lining up for tours. These days, members of the public are generally required to stop by congressional offices to get spots for White House tours. The Biden administration says anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the previous 10 days, or has been in close contact with someone who has confirmed or is suspected of having the virus, “should stay home.”
