What’s Up Des Moines?

Zenith Holland Nursery – Lyn Robinson

This Des Moines business first started as a greenhouse in 1907, and then was taken over in 1945 by Thys Napjus, an immigrant from Holland who had been a grower as a young man.

Lyn began working for Thys at the nursery while she was attending Highline College as a merchandising student, and then eventually took over the business in 1980.

Zenith offers a large selection of beautiful plants, instructional classes, and a very knowledgeable and helpful staff. With a recent expansion, they now offer a full retail garden center with indoor plants and gifts. There really is something for everyone there! They are dedicated to selling locally sourced, sustainable products, for indoor and outdoor gardens.

Stop by to check it out and say hello to two of the most friendly dogs: Lilly & Sid!

Don’t miss your chance to sign up for wonderful classes – go to Gardening Classes at zenithholland.com.

Thank you Lyn and team for all of your effort in maintaining one of Des Moines’ greatest hidden treasures!
