In Memphis…Midtown Nursery Expands in Time for Green Season

From The Daily News

A nursery in Midtown whose owner likes to jump at opportunities will spread its green thumb to two new locations in time for planting season this year.

Earnest, a native Memphian who opened his Central Avenue location in March last year, signed a lease for the vacant Stringer’s Garden Center at 2794 Poplar Ave. for the months of March through June.
