Who we are

Tioga Gardens, originally Nichols florist, was purchased in 1966 by Otto and Gladys Kuhlman. Otto, the local highway superintendent at the time, had never even been in a greenhouse, but believed the business and the location would be good for his whole family. He was right! He realized one of his dreams in the creation of the tropical conservatory, the first of its kind in the triple cities.

Otto and Gladys' sons, Ed and Chris are now co-owners of the business; another son Steve is the greenhouse manager, and Gladys can still be found cleaning and trimming flowers in the florist shop. Ed and Chris have expanded on Otto's plans over the years and built several more greenhouses and created a five-acre sanctuary that hosts memorable weddings and gatherings.

Enjoy the splendors of nature at Tioga Gardens..we will amaze you!
