Hailey Buchner prunes flowers and organizes a table of annuals on Monday for Canoyer Garden Center in Lincoln, the company’s second in Nebraska. The family-owned business sells a selection of annuals, herbs, houseplants, home décor and other gardening supplies.

Lincoln’s newest garden center opened its doors Monday.

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

Brad Canoyer said the company has wanted to open a Lincoln location for a long time and just needed to find the right spot for it.

The Canoyer Garden Center opened its doors in Lincoln on Monday near 98th and Van Dorn streets.

“Lincoln’s a market that we’ve looked at for years, even before Papillion,” said Canoyer, whose parents started the company in Griswold, Iowa, in the 1980s.

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

Canoyer said he had a couple of other possible locations in mind but after meeting with city officials decided that was the best spot.

Garden decorations are among items for sale at the Canoyer Garden Center near 98th and Van Dorn.

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

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

While Lincoln residents are not without choices when it comes to lawn and garden products, with specialty stores such as Campbell’s Nursery and Earl May Garden Center, and several big-box home improvement stores, Canoyer said he sees plenty of room in the market for another option.

Georgia Miller dead-heads petunias at Canoyer Garden Center on Monday, its opening day. You can buy perennials now but just wait a few weeks to plant them when the soil temperature is warmer.

“We think Lincoln has grown enough to handle another garden center,” he said.

The store is open 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.

White House staff gave a tour around the executive mansion where flowers and trees are starting to bloom, signaling that Spring has arrived in the nation’s capital. Parts of the North lawn, South lawn, and the Rose Garden were feature stops, and views of the Washington Monument and the Jefferson Memorial were a bonus on this sunny Thursday morning. Public tours both inside and outside the White House are available and restarted last year after a more than 14-month hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic. The annual fall and spring tours open the gates on gardens more than 200 years old — the oldest continually maintained landscape in the United States, says the National Park Service. When first lady Pat Nixon started the spring and fall garden tours in 1973, the White House itself still was open to visitors lining up for tours. These days, members of the public generally are asked to go through congressional offices for spots on White House tours. The Biden administration says anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the 10 days prior, or has been in close contact with someone confirmed or suspected to have the virus, ”should stay home.”
