Meet Charlie Thigpen

Garden Design Birmingham ALHe did it! In 2009 Charlie took a deep breath and jumped, making a mid-career leap into Charlie Thigpen’s Garden Gallery, a shop that is more than a garden center or art gallery. It is the brick and mortar incarnation of a longtime dream, one borne of life experience as well as life’s passion.

For over 20 years, Charlie orchestrated the refined and naturalistic plantings that distinguished the campus of Southern Progress Corporation where Southern Living magazine is published. There he honed his skills, elevating the landscape to a garden, and taking the craft of gardening to the level of art. He saw how plants and design impact the lives of spectators and participants alike, and he developed a personal style that looks good while being manageable.

As his skills and insights grew, he began to contribute to Southern Living, helping readers see possibilities and understand the way to achieve them. Known for projects rooted in experience, Charlie can paint a pretty picture with plants.

His wife and behind-the-scenes partner Cindy says, “I’ve been telling Charlie for years that he should branch out. He’s so talented and has such a following.” She recalls, “There is no way I would have encouraged him as an entrepreneur if I didn’t believe he has a perspective that no one else has.”

Just as Charlie offered his creative ideas to millions of readers, today he enjoys bringing them to life at The Gardener’s Gallery and at the homes of their customers. Focusing on kitchen gardens, container gardens, and southern artists, The Gardener’s Gallery offers an extra measure of delight for the ground outside each person’s door. “Gardening is not about weeding, planting, and watering, ” Charlie reflects. “It is about the experiences you have while gardening—the rainbow, the hummingbird, the fall branch that turns red, and all the little miracles.”

Columbus Organic Garden Service

I am conducting a market survey to get an idea of how many people around the Columbus area would be interested in an organic gardening service.
The concept would be a service to design, install, and maintain an organic garden in your own backyard. The customer would be charged a small amount for installation fees, as well as weekly maintenance fees for weeding, harvesting, etc.
For about $30 a week, a family would be provided with a box of fresh organic produce, with no work required from the customer.
Please let me know if you would be interested in such a service.

    I mean what were there jobs after the group stop performing? What did they do for money?

    • I'm sure they had other ventures going on, but they also lived off of their Royalities.

      At the end of the day, the ones with the less fame have the less stress. Which in return, they lived longer.
