East End: Colorful Gardens
It was October of 1997, when a Jamesport garden center became the very first place featured on a brand new News 12 show - The East End Show.
Michele DeVito says there's a lot of history behind her quaint garden center Colorful Gardens.
Partner Manuel Canel came to the U.S. from Guatamala more than 30 years ago, and has worked at the center since the early 90s.
They grow flowers, vegetables and herbs. They also have a retail shop selling local crafts. And while this spring they weren't even allowed to open because of the pandemic, they ended up having an extremely busy year, with lots of customers looking for flowers, vegetables and a place to relax.
They close for the season next weekend, but are excited about next year.
