Bonnie Plants
Bonnie Plants is the preferred brand of vegetable and herb plants for many gardeners throughout the country. Known for providing high quality vigorous plants, the company is also known for a green approach to gardening. Bonnie's  biodegradable, plantable pots keep more than a hundred million plastic pots out of landfills each year.

The company began in 1918 when a farming couple named Bonnie and Livingston Paulk planted two pounds of cabbage seeds so they could sell starter plants to provide income for the winter. Transporting the plants by horse and buggy, they sold that first batch to neighbors and other customers in their hometown of Union Springs, Alabama. It wasn't long before they began selling other crops and Livingston named their new company after his wife.

Continuing a tradition of family management the current president of Bonnie plants is the grandson of Bonnie and Livingston, and the company still calls Union Springs home. Today, Bonnie Plants offers gardeners more than 250 varieties of vegetables and herbs - all grown in greenhouses in nearly every stat to supply fresh healthy plant to nearby markets.

Bonnie Plants are available at garden retailers during the planting seasons in your area. Check the dealerlocator at to find a store near you. To learn more, visit Bonnie Plants ,then follow us on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Pinterest.

Pearl's Premium Ultra Low Maintenance Lawn Seed is a breakthrough, barefoot-soft, award winning lawn seed that was the result of 10 years of intense research into all natural, native and adaptive grasses. Pearl's Premium grass, sprouts in 7-10 days, grows to a lush thick 1" tall in a month, then slows down, so you mow it only once a month in sunny areas or once every 6 weeks in shady areas - rather than mowing every week, as with other grasses.

No GMOs and all-natural, this grass never needs chemical fertilizer to stay green all year long, to be "People, Pet & Planet Friendly".    Pearl's Premium has received over 300 rave reviews by the experts including "Popular Science" and "This Old House" magazines, plus reviewers at ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox News, Boston Globe and Wall Street Journal and home improvement expert Bob Vila.

Also won the coveted international MassChallenge prize for innovation out of a field of 446 enties from 26 countries.  This is a family owned business that hires the handicapped and gives a significant amount of money and grass seed to causes related to environmental education, children, animals and gives free educational workshops all over the country.

Smart Pots.

High Caliper Growing High Caliper Growing, manufacturer of the Smart Pot and the Big Bag Bed, was founded in 1984. But the story began four years earlier when Ralph Reiger put together some fabric containers at his tree farm in Guthrie, Oklahoma. Ralph hoped the in-ground fabric bags would make harvesting large caliper trees easy. The trees were dug in 1982, and two year later Ralph, working out of the basement of his house, incorporated and began selling his new “Root Control Bags” to the nursery industry. Today, High Caliper Growing is the green industry leader in manufacturing breathable, soft-sided containers for plant growers. After years in the garden and nursery, we know that the container you use will effect the growth of your plant. The Smart Pot fabric aeration container and the Big Bag Bed fabric raised bed are the best growing containers for your plants. And our products are made in Oklahoma, USA. Smart Pots

Sixty years ago WILT-PRUF® was discovered and became the first anti-transpirant on the market. A product such as this was needed in horticulture to enable nurserymen to transplant shrubs and trees any time of year without fear of excessive transpiration which could cause plant failure.

Over the years, it was discovered that anti-transpirants had many additional but related uses -- protection against drying out when evergreen roots were frozen in wintertime, as well as during periods of drought. These times of stress deprive plants of their normal moisture intake. Anti-transpirants were found to be effective on cut Christmas trees, wreaths, and greens to retard needle drop by keeping existing moisture in the foliage. It was discovered that many indoor plants could survive longer periods without watering by treatment with an anti-transpirant. And ornamentals exposed to excessive warm or cold winds were protected from drying out by spraying with an anti-transpirant. Storage of tubers, bulbs, and bare root stock was more successful when they were first dipped in an anti-transpirant solution.
