A little more than a month after the tornado destroyed North Haven Gardens Oct. 20, the business is up and running for the holidays. You can find Christmas trees, “Kandy Kane” kalanchoes, “Princettia” poinsettias, ferns, Christmas cactus and other holiday blooms and greenery. Hours are Monday-Saturday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m., and Sunday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. (The business will be closed on Thanksgiving Day.)
Here’s what Mariana Greene, former gardening editor at The Dallas Morning News said on Facebook: “It was important to me to go to North Haven Gardens today. … I wanted to support the owner and staff and honor their determination to come back from this tragedy. I had not been anywhere near the neighborhood since the tornado. Pictures do not punch you in the gut like being there did. I cried to see the devastation, especially the landscape barren of trees. NHG was doing a brisk business, considering. The inventory of Christmas trees is beautiful, as usual. There are cold-hardy vegetables and seasonal color, gardeners’ gifts, and poinsettias. I hugged my friends on staff and teared up often. Jon Pincus and his staff must be buoyed by the outpouring of support.”
