Business Description: Wedel’s Nursery, Florist and Garden Center had its beginning in 1946 when Harley Wedel opened a produce store at 1832 S. Westnedge, the North end of Westnedge Hill. From the family farm in Portage Township, produce from forty acres of sweet corn, squash, melons, and fruit from the orchard was taken into Kalamazoo and sold at “Wedel’s Fruit and Produce Store”. In 1953 some evergreens, trees and shrubs were planted behind one of the farm sheds. Harley soon had the love of plants in his blood and it wasn’t long before he put his entire effort into the nursery business. In 1955 all produce was cleared out and Harley opened Kalamazoo’s first complete one-stop garden center and retail nursery sales lot –” Wedel’s Evergreen Gardens.” Rapid growth followed with the nursery sales lot expanding three times within six years. Due to the need for more sales area, Wedel’s Nursery and Garden Center moved in 1969 from 1832 S. Westnedge to its second location in the city of Portage at 5922 S. Westnedge. In 1972, Wedel’s moved its nursery stock growing operation from its Portage location on Angling Rd. to an 80-acre farm at 5085 S. 34th St. in Galesburg. We now grow most of the nursery stock sold at our garden center. Purple phalaenopsis orchidIn 1982, Wedel’s opened a florist department and became a member of both Teleflora and Florist Telegraph Delivery System. In 1988, after many years of planning, Wedel’s embarked on a major remodeling/modernization of the business. Completed in 1988 were new business offices, customer checkout area, new bedding plant greenhouse, new pole building at the nursery, and construction of a new landscape supply area. In August, 1989, the long awaited expansion of the Garden Center was begun. A new building was constructed to join the existing garden center sales area to the customer checkout area. Added were new tropical plant greenhouse, florist shop, expansion of garden shop, new roof on old building, florist design room, walk-in flower cooler, etc. In March, 2001, Wedel’s Nursery, Florist and Garden Center opened Southwest Michigan’s Premier Horticultural Center at 5020 Texas Dr. The new facility incorporates larger, more spacious aisles, covered walks that lead into and out of our Nursery area, permanent planted display gardens, a large permanent pond area complete with flowing creek and two bridges, a conference area for clubs and organizations, a rental department, bulk landscape materials, expanded Annual & perennial display and greenhouse area, larger floral design and display area, a gorgeous solarium flanked with columns and large fountain, the area’s largest selection of garden & landscape decorations. We are also very excited to announce the opening of the Garden Party Cafe which serves food and drink in a garden like setting inside the brand new Wedel’s Nursery, Florist and Garden center. The management of Wedel’s, Inc. feels we now have not only the best horticultural service, but also first class facilities to serve Southwest Michigan’s horticultural needs. The founder of Wedel’s, Harley D. Wedel, went home to be with his Savior and Lord on April 27, 1998, at the age of 91. Harley enjoyed the people he worked with, our customers, and plants of all kinds. He worked at the garden center through his 90th year. He also enjoyed an extensive flower and vegetable garden at home. We miss him. God has blessed our business over the years and we are thankful to Him.

Recent Review: It was very good but I did not use their services; I just liked what another company had better. Their water feature is more of a fountain and it is not completely natural. We made a decision to go with a more natural look. They were very nice and came out to talk with us. I did not use them because I did not like their service. They were very easy to deal with and gave us a good quote. For what they were doing their price may have been a little high.

Recent Review: It took them two days and I like everything about this company. We dealt with the owner of the company personally and he came out to our house and spent a lot of time with us taking a look at our back yard. He really understood how his water feature was going to affect other foliage on my property. He really knows what he is doing. When Chris, the designer, came out to actually build the feature, he was just marvelous in doing what we wanted to have done. The back of our house is very open with a lot of glass and we wanted to be able to see the feature from everywhere in the back of the house and he built it so that there were three waterfalls in the feature; all of them facing different directions so that we could see the waterfall from anywhere in the back of the house. It was wonderful; we were totally impressed. Given what they did, it was a very fair price. There are aspects to the pond that are guaranteed for our lifetime, including the possibility of the pond leaking. The pump is guaranteed for three years. I am impressed with the quality at this point. They were right on time and finished early. Chris has come out since to make sure everything was alright. The whole operation was very professional.

Recent Review: Jan met with me and made a design that I really liked. It was a very big and professional design that she presented me with the second time we met. She even customized it with all the plants that I like. They came in and did the whole job in one day. I came home from work and it looked amazing! They even made me some beautiful annual pots and dropped them off. All my friends use this company and are always happy.

Recent Review: Project #1: The patio paver repair went well. The structural changes should eliminate animals burrowing under the patios and steps leading from the upper to lower patios. We were very pleased with the final product.Project #2: The complete water feature project is still a work in progress. The natural features of the stream and the pond are exactly what were presented to us in the initial design. It is 100% better than the water feature we had installed 12 years ago. The feature fits seamlessly into the environment. However, we are still working with Naylor on leaks in the stream bed. Naylor has been working closely with us to repair any problems. They guarantee their work, and they have consistently kept an eye on this project over the last 2 months. The crew that worked on this project was professional and proud of their workmanship. They arrived early and accomplished each goal they set for the day. They listened to our suggestions and incorporated changes as the project moved along. James Whittaker, the Landscape Construction Supervisor, is professional, cooperative, and goal oriented.Be aware that any modification to the original design may have a cost. Be sure to raise this issue if changes are to be made.
