Helen Melendez has over 25 years of horticultural experience.  She has worked with indoor plants, and outdoor gardens since the early part of her life, while assisting her mother with plant maintenance installations and outdoor gardening designs. This was her initial introduction to horticulture, and she continued to dedicate her life to the nurturing plants throughout the years.

From the time that she noticed several friends, neighbors, and family asking for advice in horticulture, and holiday decorating ideas, she realized that it was time to create her own company.  She would get comments such as “Where did you buy that wreath, Helen.” When she replied that it was her own design and materials, people would be amazed. The name of the company was created from the phrase “having a green thumb.”  Helen thought, I will need fingers to do the job so “Green Fingers” became the name of her company.
