Steve and Sharon Jensen purchased Kelly Gardens from Doug and Joy Kelly upon their retirement in January of 2007. The Kellys had enjoyed a successful business at the corner of 320 St. & Military Rd. for 9 years. Upon taking ownership Steve and Sharon wasted no time building upon that foundation while making many upgrades to the store and grounds. They expanded the gift shop with home décor and high quality garden furniture, pottery, and much more.
Steve has a masters degree in education, having served as principle in 4 different private Christian schools. His true love has always been plants having built show quality gardens at his own private residence in multiple locations. Sharon has a great deal of retail experience having served in almost every role (sales, manager, regional manager, owner) and size (locally owned, national chain) of business possible. At Branches their experience and passions have come together.
In our opinion the staff at Branches is the best garden center staff in the Pacific Northwest. Together they have over 50 years of combined experience in landscaping and retail garden centers. Whether it is landscape consultation, help in the gift shop, or you just need help getting a tree in your car, you can be assured that you are dealing with a staff that is knowledgable and loves what they are doing.
The vision for Branches is to provide a local garden center where a community is able to get expert advice and find great deals to make their garden beautiful. We believe it is within the reach of everyone to have a garden that is Always In Season.
