JANE BEGGS-JOLES

Marketing Specialist
Spring Meadow Nursery Inc            

Jane Beggs-Joles began her horticultural career at River Farm, headquarters of the American Horticultural Society, where she worked as a gardener and intern for two warm, humid northern Virginia summers. Despite the charms of that Potomac estate, she moved to Michigan to earn her B.S. in horticulture from Michigan State University and then undertook an M.S. degree in agricultural economics. Jane joined the team  at Spring Meadow Nursery in 1999, five years before their 2004 partnership with Proven Winners. Jane’s current position of licensee analyst enables her to enjoy two of her passions: excellent plants and well-organized spreadsheets. She firmly believes that there is a botanical answer to any landscape situation, and strives to make it easy for people to choose the right plant in the right place.
