Partner Spotlight

The Month’s Partner Spotlight is Pacific Nurseries

Pacific Nurseries began originally as a small, retail nursery in San Francisco. And over 150 years later, with the addition of more facilities, our plant inventory has increased to over 36 acres. And unlike many wholesale nurseries, we’re both a grower and a plant broker with an extensive and trusted network of specialty plant providers.
We continue to make investments to improve our facilities, provide the widest possible selection of plants, and integrate new technologies to improve customer service.
Our green practices include container recycling, low-water irrigation systems, and a bio-diesel powered delivery fleet. This helps us reduce our environmental impact, minimize our carbon footprint, and improve Bay Area quality of life.
