The Chamber and Renasant Bank presented Plants, Plants, Plants with the November Small Business of The Month Award.
Plants, Plants, Plants was started by owner Laurelee Wilkerson in 1992 with the aim of providing interior decorating to the Valdosta community. Instead of arranging furniture and picking color schemes, Wilkerson decided to specialize in using plants.
“Designing and supplying plantscapes enhances any environment, thereby improving its air quality and beauty. It is proven to increase health, productivity and morale, and it enriches a comfortable environment for employees, clients, and customers.” Wilkerson said.
The company provides plants to many of the residential and commercial areas of Valdosta, as well as making the floral arrangements for events such as weddings. The selection of plants can be bought or leased, and Wilkerson works to maintain her patrons’ plants on a weekly basis.
“You must have an extensive knowledge of plants’ varieties. Its survivability includes feeding, nutrients and maintenance, and I have do this for a diverse assortment of clients.” She said.
Wilkerson said the best part of her job is being involved with the community and making a difference.
“I help maintain the local schools’ gardens through the Master Gardening Program. I have taught the art of growing plants to many clubs, organization and school children of all ages. In my spare time, I’m active with the Cancer Society and help organize survivor events. I am also active with the Southeastern Citrus Growers.” She said.
