Our History

Jay, Fred, & Jane Holasek

Fred Holasek & Son Greenhouse was started over 40 years ago by Fred W. Holasek. After working for another greenhouse in high school, Fred started his own business on the corner of County Road 6 and Old Highway 12 near Long Lake, MN. The property in Lester Prairie was purchased in 1978. Our DBA name, Holasek Flower Power, was adopted in 2011 for our retail division. We are a family-owned business which strives to provide the friendliest service and highest quality product possible.

Wholesale and retail sales have always been a part of our business. Our trucks deliver to professional gardeners and garden centers locally owned within approximately an hour’s drive from Lester Prairie. Our greenhouses provide over 70,000 square feet of growing space for our crops, and our retail garden center is open year-round.

Main crops grown are: High quality annual, vegetable, and herb plants, including many unusual and heirloom varieties, for all seasons; A full line of perennials and shrubs; 3” fairy garden plants and succulents;  and Poinsettias. Our retail greenhouse also offers unique pumpkins, gourds, and squash for fall decorating  and spruce tips and outdoor winter greens in November and December. There is always something growing here at Fred Holasek & Son Greenhouse! Any product we do not grow on site is sourced locally within a 20-mile radius from us.

To help take care of our earth, Fred Holasek & Son has installed 48 solar panels, all American-made, to provide us with clean, renewable energy and lower the demand for electrical companies. Each year, we recycle tons of plastic pots and flats used in our growing process. In addition, a “Sharing Shed” in our parking lot is available to our retail customers 24 hours a day for sharing and recycling used garden pots and packs.
