Owning a nursery was always a dream of Mike Blaise. As a very young child he was always interested in growing plants. He grew gardens, orchids and even had a greenhouse attached to his garage when he was in high school. Mike pursued his dream and received his Bachelor’s degree in Horticulture from Mississippi State University in 1986. He worked many years in the industry. He was the Production Manager for Cherry Lake Tree Farm when he decided to make the move and start his own business. In 2000 he started propagating plants in his back yard while consulting for several tree farms.
Today Blaise Gardens is a 20 acre tree farm that specializes in Standard Crape Myrtles. However, we also grow a number of other ornamental trees as well.
