We Are The GREENHOUSE

Roger and April Barrow purchased Whiteford Road Greenhouse in the fall of 1974. Roger Barrow, being the 6th generation in his family to run and own greenhouses, was the first to break away from the wholesale flower business and focus strictly on retail.  His attention to detail and eye for quality is what has made Whiteford Greenhouse the top greenhouse in the Toledo area.
Roger and April Barrow were blessed with two children, Edward born in 1976, and daughter Cypress born in 1980, both children (and their partners) are following the family tradition in the greenhouse business making them the 7th generation.
Eddie specializes in growing our perennials and cultivating of rare breeds. Cypress is our sales, public relations and merchandising specialist. Her focus is on social media, personalized customer service, quality, display, and sales of our beautiful product. Cypress's husband, Jacob Urrutia is our head annual grower. He cares for all of our hanging baskets, annuals, vegetables and herbs. Eddie, Cypress & Jacob all work hand in hand with their father running the blooming business.
