Co-owners Dewey and Lorrie Turner have experience involving them in all aspects of the foliage industry. Lorrie has forty years in the foliage industry having held positions in growing and sales for major wholesale nurseries, and purchasing for a leading interiorscape company. In South Florida, they ran the family-owned Hibiscus nursery. Lorrie managed all aspects of the business and Dewey developed a wealth of knowledge in production, growing, and operations in building the nursery from the ground up.
In the late 1990s, the Turners moved to beautiful Virginia where they joined the former Willow Run Company owned by the Gyory family—Dewey as a grower, and Lorrie as a foliage buyer. Several years later, the Turners gained ownership of the Willow Run Company and re-launched as Willow Run Greenhouse Corporation.
Today, Dewey serves as the co-owner and General Manager of Operations for WRGC. As a co-owner, sales manager, and foliage buyer for Willow Run Greenhouse Corp, Lorrie makes rounds to the nurseries in Florida to ensure the best quality foliage available, as market trends vary from trip to trip.
