McCabe's Greenhouse and Floral

About the Owner

Mike started McCabe’s Greenhouse and Floral because he had the spirit of an entrepreneur and the work ethic of a farmer. Through his years of blood, sweat and tears (probably a little too much blood) he has made McCabe’s into a beautiful garden center and flower shoppe. Mike, as the head grower, takes pride in the selection and outstanding varieties of flowers that he grows. Each flower has been handled with special care so that it will thrive at it’s new home: your house!
