About Us - Our History

We are in the business of making the world more beautiful. After transforming the old Cellon farmhouse on 441 in Gainesville, Florida into a magical garden of angels and botanical delights, the public was invited to the enchanting old homestead to wander amongst the giant oaks, luscious landscaping and wonderful watergardens. The place had a reputation for being a soothing haven in which to relax and unwind. We have left with our memories intact of the wonderful customers and friends we were blessed to have served, the old farmhouses that made us feel at home of long ago, the enchanted cafe and gardens, the annual Fairy festivals, and of course the Grandfather Oak.

We continue to use the name Angel Gardens for our business based out of our home property  in Alachua, Florida, minus the retail store.

Meanwhile, we continue in the pursuit of what we do best: designing and creating environments which enhance the lives of our clients. We have been free to devote our attention to creating outdoor paradises with a special focus on Waterfeatures and Rose Gardens.

We have established a Rose Nursery and Display Gardens where we grow close to 2000 varieties of Antique (Old Garden Roses) and Modern Landscape Roses including Chinas, Teas, Noisettes, Hybrid Musks, Hybrid Perpetuals , Bourbons, Climbers, Miniatures, Shrubs and older Hybrid Teas and Floribundas. All our roses are grown on their Own Roots and we use no chemical fertilizers or sprays (100% Organic). We welcome Garden Clubs and Group Tours. We are also available for private classes and speaking engagements on Roses, Organic Gardening, Watergardening and Aquaponics.

We have relocated Angel Gardens to our home on 10 acres north of Alachua, Florida where we offer an outdoor showroom (by appointment). We invite you to visit our large koi pond and waterfall, complete with flagstone patio, hot tub, tiki bar,  and outdoor shower (hillbilly spa). A 5 acre spring-fed pond is also part of our property.

The Spirit of Angel Gardens as a lifestyle is alive and well where we enjoy 37 years married this year. Our four grown children, Chloe, Josiah, Mason and Isla, have spread their wings and flown the coop. Josiah has married Maeve, and Chloe and her husband Dustin have recently birthed our first grandchild, Easton James. James and I, stewards of our homestead of 30 years now invite you to Stop by and Smell the Roses.
