Our History

Dedicated Employees Since The Beginning

Jean’s the Right Plant Place was founded in 1992 and moved to its present location in 1993.  Jean started out with about 5 employees, including the current owners of Jean’s!  In 2004, Jean ‘s was sold to the current owners, Julie Schroer and Jodie Ramsay.  Julie and Jodie are both Perham natives and worked for Jean on and off during college and graduate school.  They teach biology at Northern State University in Aberdeen, SD during the ‘non-gardening’ season, and Julie also manages the greenhouses at NSU.  They frequently speak at horticulture events. 

Enjoy the Beauty of Our Garden

We created a park like setting with our plants and flowers – adding lots of tables, filled with beautiful and hardy perennials arranged by their sun/shade requirements and bloom time. We have designed fourteen display gardens planted on the grounds to inspire you. Come enjoy the beauty of mixing plants to create texture, color and depth in your garden.

Lovely Gift Shop

The ‘blue house’ was originally occupied by Annie’s Gifts, and after their closing in 2005, we converted the house to a lovely gift shop. We brought ‘the outdoors in’, creating a gift shop with a large selection of bird baths and feeders, gardening books, and yard art to help make your garden an expression of you.
