The Plant Lady was established in 1995 by Michele Doyle. Her goal was to beautify her community through interior plant decor. She cultivated and maintained an interior living plant environment in local businesses in Greensboro, Burlington, Graham, and Mebane. The Plant Lady remained a small local business while Michele focused on raising her family and furthering her education. She has since earned degrees and certifications that will allow The Plant Lady to cover a wider spectrum of services. In addition, she is proud to have had her youngest son, John Hawkins, join her in 2017 and her oldest son, Mathew Hawkins, join her in 2018.
