Family Lines: Orchid Business in Third Generation

Joan McCandless has always had orchids in the backyard. Thousands of them. Her grandfather, Oliver Lines, and father, John Lines, started selling orchids on Signal Mountain more than 60 years ago.

Today, McCandless owns Lines Orchids. The greenhouses are located on Taft Highway on Signal Mountain, and McCandless recently opened up a second retail location in Warehouse Row. WUTC's Mary Helen Miller visited the greenhouses.

Mary Helen Miller was a producer for Around and About from 2012 to 2013. She now works at the Chattanooga Times-Free Press.
