Garden Center News

To our valued Sundance customers,

As we patiently await the arrival of spring and the sprouting of another garden season at Sundance I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the new garden center manager.

My name is Pam Selman. Some of you already know me and many of you will recognize me from my work at other garden centers in the Kittredge and Littleton areas. I received a degree in Horticulture from Temple University in Philadelphia, PA and have worked in the industry since moving to Colorado in 1986. I have always lived in the foothills, initially in Evergreen but for the last 25 years in Conifer so I am aware of and understand the trials and tribulations of gardening in the foothills...the high altitude restrictions, the deer and elk and the cute but not so welcome creature...the vole.

Since I garden at 8300' I have a passion for container gardening using annuals, perennials, tropicals and anything chartreuse in color. My favorite perennial to use is Monkshood so if you are unfamiliar with the benefits of this wonderful plant stop by and I'll gladly share why you should give it a space or two in your garden.

In closing, I would like to acknowledge Sundance's retiring manager, Linda Zakes. She is a huge part of the Sundance legacy, a much-respected member of the Evergreen gardening community and has left me with some very big shoes to fill. I wish her happy retirement and hope her life's garden is full of many more beautiful blooms.

Happy gardening,

Pam Selman
