  • Custom Grow Program
    The Perennial Farm specializes in tailoring "Custom Grow" programs to fit your exact perennial needs and requirements! Our extensive experience assures beautiful, well-rooted plants when you need them....

    • Custom grown programs save you time and money.
    • When perennials are contract grown, plants are very uniform since they start off in the same growth cycle.
    • With our Custom Growing Program, you have a much wider selection of varieties than are generally available.
    • When you rely on The Perennial Farm contract grown plants it eliminates the additional expense, expertise and time needed to run a greenhouse and coordinating growing dates with planting dates in the field.
    • We work with landscape contractors on larger-scale commercial and residential jobs with future plant demands. This program is also perfect for garden centers who want to be assured of specific future inventory.
