What’s New

NEWS ALERT!   KING’S MUMS HAS BEEN SOLD

Ray and Kim Gray announced on July 21, 2014, the sale of King’s Mums to Brian Kanotz.   Most recently Brian and his wife Sheila were horticulturists at Callaway Gardens in Georgia.  Both interned at Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania early in their careers.  They have relocated to the Tulsa, Oklahoma area where Brian will be operating King’s Mums. Ray and Kim said in their announcement that they have a great deal of confidence in Brian adding that he is knowledgeable, hardworking, and open to new ideas. According to Ray, at this point Brian plans to operate King’s Mums as they have done in the past.

NCS wishes Kim and Ray the best as they transition into retirement.  They have been good friends to NCS and we will miss their involvement with King’s Mums.

As we learn more about the future of King’s we will let you know through The Chrysanthemum, our website, and on Facebook.
