US (WI): Longtime garden center that closed in Milwaukee has reopened in St. Francis

1 Min Read

This small greenhouse in St. Francis is not your garden variety plant store.

Owner of Custom Grown Greenhouses Paul Budzisz has over 50 years of gardening experience, which he said is “since I was just a lad at 16.” He also employs a horticulturalist and master gardener.

Mum is not the word (other than the flower) as the staff said they want to share their knowledge with the community. When Custom Grown Greenhouses shut down its Milwaukee garden center last year, Budzisz thought it might be time to retire. But another opportunity came up.

“Sometimes things just fall into place,” he said. While he’d sold plants by the Layton Fruit Market, 1838 E. Layton Ave., for a long time, a partnership has made that more permanent. “They’re great people to work with,” he said of the fruit stand owners.
