Bandon plant fancier has a flowering paradise
He continued to go to shows and got involved with the Southwestern Oregon Chapter of the Amercian Rhododendron Society as well as the Coos Bay Garden Club. He ordered rhododendrons from all over the world and also picked them up at local nurseries. He can name most of the varieties and tell you when they bloom. Hackett also began planting hydrangeas and other flowering plants, as well as fruit trees along the property, clearing as he went. The west end of his property is still thick with cedar, fir and pine, which provides a windbreak from the strong coastal winds and creates a micro-climate.
"I took over 200 trees out of here this year," he said. "It was all bad cedar, then I got a chipper and chipped the wood."
Hackett bought a used bucket truck to cut down some of the trees and trim the taller rhododendrons and navigates the property on a golf cart -- fitting, given his proximity to Bandon Dunes Golf Resort. He waters the bushes and plants through a drip irrigation system and fertilizes to keep them healthy.
Hackett has lived in Coos County much of his life, growing up in the Millington area of Coos Bay, where his parents owned several properties and a roofing company. He's worked mostly as a local business owner, but also as a cranberry grower in Bandon, among other endeavors. He owned Bay Burger in Empire as well as Davey Jones Locker in Charleston for 16 years. He met his wife Wanda during that time and moved to Bandon. He and Wanda ran Jack's Pizza (formerly Ragtime Pizza, now Brewed Awakenings) and also owed the Bandon Bay Company, located in Old Town.
A jack of many trades, Hackett also is a builder. He built all the buildings on his property, including their home, shop and many outbuildings. He has a passion for making birdhouses, which he now gives away. He tried selling them once, but people wanted to special order and then he had to make them, which took the fun away.
Wanda supports what he's doing, but doesn't have the passion for it that her husband does.
"Seventy-five percent of the people in the Rhododendron Society are men," Hackett said. "We all work together and support eac... (Coos Bay World)Feb 2, 2016
