Corrine Edgar

Corrine has been involved with horticulture since 1987. While putting herself through college, majoring in TV broadcasting, she worked for a horticulture distribution wholesaler. She fell in love with horticulture instead and trained herself through experience and the school of hard knocks. Corrine started her own landscaping business in 2000, working out of a hatchback with a shovel, rake, pruners and a wheelbarrow. The firm, Corrine’s Garden Creations, now does landscape design, installation, maintenance of foundation material and planting perennials and annuals. Gary and his team are always happy when the seasons change because it means Corrine is back on duty at Gary’Z of Stamford to lend a daily hand. She is a delight and all our standing order clients love her.

Anselmo Ramos -aka “Chino”

What a guy! There really isn’t anything he can’t do. After many years in the floral industry, and the New York City floral market, Chino now leads most of the Gary’Z installation teams. There is no installation challenge he can’t solve!
