Charlie Junior is our grower, and is also in charge of the wholesale end of our business, Elmwood Greenhouses.

After studying agriculture at Alfred University he went to the Florida Institute of Technology where he studied aviation. Upon graduating, he became a flight instructor at Westchester County Airport, working at the greenhouse at the same time. Later, and while still working at the nursery, he became a Captain for a large commercial airline, flying 757's and 767's all around the world.

Since hanging up his wings, he has touched down at the nursery full-time, and carries on the tradition of growing and selling plants of the highest quality, just as his father and grandparents did.
