The Garden Corner Nursery was started by Bucket Keltner in 1961 and sold to Tim and Marie Saber
in 1964. Saber, who was an arborist/orchardist by trade concentrated on landscape installation
while his wife ran the retail shop and greenhouse.
When the Sabers opted to retire in 1971, it offered a long sought opportunity to Joe Snavely to own
his own plant related business. With Chris, freshly graduated from University of Maryland's
ornamental horticulture program they seized the chance. The business grew, was joined by brother
Jon and expanded to a second operation in Hagerstown, MD in 1987.
Joe retired some years ago, leaving Chris, in the Chambersburg store, and Jon in the Hagerstown
store to continue development of Snavely's Garden Corner's excellent reputaton as full service
