When Ed and Fran Machno opened the Hadley Garden Center in the spring of 1963, Route 9 was a quiet stretch of road with only a handful of businesses.
From the beginning the Machnos placed great emphasis on providing home gardeners with quality products and first-class customer service.
In 1973, when Ed Machno took a young Tom Giles under his wing, he taught him lessons that remain the backbone of the business today.
Machno and his wife Frances had opened Hadley Garden Center in the spring of 1963 with an emphasis on providing home gardeners quality products and great customer service. Giles and his wife Janine bought the business from the Machno's in 1988, and have carried on the tradition of their mentor in always going out of their way to help customers. As a result, Hadley Garden Center has built up a loyal following for over 50 years.
As a testament to the outstanding customer service provided at Hadley Garden Center, the business has been voted the Valley Advocate's Best of the Valley Reader's Poll "Best Garden Center/Nursery" year after year!
