RIP: H. Clifton Russell, founder of Russell Gardens Wholsale

H. Clifton Russell

TheGardenLady has constantly recommended that readers shop for plants at Russell Gardens Wholesale both for their great plants and their great prices.

Sadly, this is to inform readers that the man who started this business has passed away. There will be a memorial for H. Clifton Russell this Sat. To read the obituary and to see the time of the memorial service check out today’s Philadelphia Inquirer.

TheGardenLady finds it so interesting that gardeners seem to be among the most interesting- and niceĀ  – people. And H.Clifton Russell coroborates my observation. His work in Peru as a missionary is fascinating. We hope to learn when the book on Clifton’s experiences in Peru will be published so that readers of TheGardenLady blog can learn more.

Thank goodness for us gardeners that the Russell Wholesale nursery will continue selling wonderful plants at fabulous prices.

TheGardenLady wants to express her heartfelt condolences to the family.
