Mr. Beaty will share the secrets to beautiful roses that come only from a lifetime of experience. He is a life-long gardener with a passion for roses. Mr Beaty is a graduate of Tennessee Tech, and founded Beaty Fertilize, Inc. in the 1970’s. He later partnered with Ted Mills to produce the renowned “Mill’s Magic Rose Mix”, a revolutionary product combining the best nutrients for growing roses into one product. Mr. Beaty is a member of the Tri-State Rose Society of greater Chattanooga, and the American Rose Society. 

He is the recipient of numerous awards such as the 2011 Bronze Medal from the Tri-State Rose Society, and a Presidential Citation from the American Rose Society. “Mr. Beaty holds such a wealth of information, yet he is so genuine and personable. Everyone who attends the seminar is in for a special treat. We are honored to host such a knowledgeable and distinguished speaker as Mr. Beaty.” said Greg Miller, Lead Horticulturalist and General Manager at ONLC. This free seminar will be held inside Ooltewah Nursery & Landscape Co., Inc. in conjunction with the weekly Ooltewah Farmers Market (3:00-5:00 p.m.) The start of the seminar will be announced at the market.

A family-owned business, Ooltewah Nursery & Landscape Co., Inc. was established in 1989 by life-long area residents, Wendell and Gina Whitener. Last month, ONLC was named one of the top five garden centers in the U.S.A. by Today’s Garden Center magazine when it won the S.E. Region of the 2014 Revolutionary 100. The magazine compiles an annual list of the top 100 independent garden centers in the nation based on leadership and innovation. From that list of 100, one winner is selected for each of five regions. It is an honor to even be named on the list, but Ooltewah Nursery has been named the top garden center in the Southeast for two consecutive years.
