Inside Sales Rep is Miranda Basley
I was born and grew up on Long Island and started working at Hicks Nurseries. I worked there for over 11 years full and part time starting at age 14 in 1980. I worked in retail sales and later headed up the landscape design department for Hicks Nurseries. I am a past President of the Long Island Nursery & Landscape Association, and a former board member of the New York State Nursery/Landscape Association, a past board member of the SUNY Farmingdale Horticultural Committee. I have worked with Prides Corner Farms for over 6 years. My favorite things about my job are all the great customers and friends that I get to work with and help every day. I also enjoy all the beautiful plants I sell and get to try in my yard and enjoy with my wife and kids.
I have been married to my wife Karen for 18 years and I have two children Emily and Daniel. My kids children are my pride and joy. My father Carl Alm retired from Hicks Nurseries and my two sisters, Deena and Debbie work in the industry as does my niece Jamie. My hobbies include gardening and fishing. I love spending time with my family and our crazy little dog Mimi.
My Favorite Plant:Favorite Plant: Hydrangeas because of the diversity of their colors, sizes and forms. They bloom a long time when I have time to see and enjoy them in my garden. I have over a dozen varieties in my yard.
I have an associates degree from SUNY Farmingdale in Ornamental Horticulture.
