Homepage: About Us

Del Brockshus grew up in May City, Iowa and married his high school sweetheart Charin Woodrich of Melvin, Iowa. Earl May Company was an early pioneer in the garden center industry after decades of sales of horticulture products via mail order.
Del and Charin thought the idea of a garden center in the area where they both grew up would be successful. The top two cities they considered creating their garden center were either Worthington, Minnesota or Spencer, Iowa. By chance a garden store was in the process of getting into business in Worthington so Spencer, Iowa was the choice.
Del and Charin were truly blessed by the choice to build their dream garden center in Spencer, Iowa. A second generation of the Brockshus family is now leading the large operation. 
What is Del’s Garden Center today? For some Del’s Garden Center helps feed their family with seeds and vegetable plants. For others green and growing things provide respite from a fast-paced American culture. Still others just love plants and their care. For some their dream home comes with a dream landscape created by Del’s. Employees at Del’s have the joy of serving the community through wedding bouquets; birthday gifts; Valentine’s Day roses; Mother’s Day hanging baskets and funeral casket pieces.
We welcome you to join Del’s Garden Center in this marvelous story. Celebrate God’s creation of green and growing things and the people who enjoy them.
