Alyssa Douglas

Connecticut Accredited Nursery Professional

Meet Alyssa! She’s been employed by Garden Barn since March of 2009, primarily working as a cashier/sales associate but is also an expert on annuals, houseplants, trees, shrubs and perennials.  She also spends many months in our growing facility planting the up and coming crops. She attended the University of Connecticut and received her Bachelor’s degree in landscape architecture.  Her favorite part about working at Garden Barn is watching the plants she’s nurtured and help grow go home with great families! Currently, her favorite are Lantana and Clethra.  Both are fragrant and she loves that the Clethra attracts hummingbirds and butterflies.  Outside of work, she enjoys working in her garden, watching anime and playing video games.  People would be surprised to know that she met her husband on the school bus during her freshman year of high school, and they’ve been together ever since! In the future, she’d love to visit Japan.
