Tonkadale is open
Tonkadale Greenhouse has called Minnetonka home since 1947. At that time, the business consisted of an 18’ x 100’ structure. Robert Anderson started the business as a breeder of specialty African Violets. Anderson developed 200 new cultivars during his career and was considered a pioneer in the African Violet breeding community. To expand the business, Anderson began producing spring bedding plants, an evolution that continues today.
The business was purchased by Bill and Shirley Maruska in 1978. 1998 & 1999 brought winds of change. The greenhouse facility was completely rebuilt and the business began to grow.
