Greg Hulbert, a popular and highly-respected adviser at the information desk at Portland Nursery for twenty-three years, passed away at home on Sunday morning, April 13, 2014, following a short battle with cancer.

“Sinking a bulb or planting a seed is a leap of faith. There are greater realizations that plants teach that people simply can’t.”  - Greg Hulbert, 1950 - 2014

Hulbert will be missed by all who benefitted from his extensive knowledge and boundless love of plants — and his wise, no-nonsense approach to the garden. “If you don’t like it,” he would say, “get rid of it and plant something else.”

There will be an open house at Hulbert’s -Flowers, 334 SE 1st Ave, Canby, in remembrance of Greg’s life on Sunday, May 18, from 3 to 5 pm.

He is survived by his son, Colin; his daughter Courtney and Ivan Bloomquist and their children, Ellah and Griffin, all of Portland, Ore.; sisters, Nola Rae Hovland, Roma Kae Eby and Bonnie Hansen; stepsister Barbara Menkel, all of Canby, Ore.; nine nieces and nephews, and many dear friends.
