PAUL AND JOYCE LARSON, owners
PAUL graduated from the University of Connecticut with a Bachelor’s degree in Horticulture. His lifelong love of plants began with gardening while growing up on his family’s dairy farm. He worked at a family greenhouse business in his hometown of Woodstock, and also as a manager at a large wholesale grower. In 1998, he came home to work full-time at the growing Sprucedale Gardens business, and has been very busy ever since! Paul is involved in church leadership, Windham County Farm Bureau, the Connecticut Invasive Plants Council, and the board of the Ct Agricultural Experiment Station. Paul is a former president of the Connecticut Nursery and Landscape Association.
JOYCE graduated from the University of Connecticut with a bachelor’s degree in Horticulture. She worked getting Sprucedale Gardens “off the ground” in the early years, while taking care of three young children. Joyce enjoys volunteering at church, being a mom and wife, and providing landscape designs for Sprucedale customers.
