Schroeder’s Flowers, Green Bay, Wisconsin, was honored as the Wisconsin & Upper Michigan Florists Association’s Grower of the Year at the group’s annual convention held in the Wisconsin Dells. The award is presented to a WUMFA member that has done an outstanding job growing and distributing products to retailers as well as doing service to their community.
The company was established in 1899. Throughout the years more greenhouses and a retail outlet was added to the business. Today the wholesale business provides bedding plants for shops all over Wisconsin and Upper Michigan. Fox Valley Greenhouse in DePere, Wisconsin is the firm’s grower division which welcomes customers during their April open house each year to see the newest products.
The award was accepted by fifth generation owners Charles and Peggy Schroeder.
