Quality Greenhouses & Perennial Farm, Inc. was started in 1986 as a wholesale grower of annuals, perennials, and fall flowering crops. The business purchased an existing bedding plant greenhouse range in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. The land consisted of 1 acre heated greenhouse space and 2 acres of outdoor perennial production. The business has grown to include two additional farms in the Northern York County, Dillsburg, Pennsylvania area. These locations now have twenty acres of heated greenhouse space and thirty acres of perennial growing area.
Bedding plants and perennials are the backbone of the business which services independent garden centers in Pennsylvania, Maryland, northern Virginia, Washington DC, New Jersey, and Delaware.Because of our customer base, we not only try to carry the “bread and butter” products in bedding plants and perennials, but also the more unusual, hard to find items with new varieties that help set our product mix and our customers apart.
There is an excellent staff of people behind the success of Quality Greenhouses. Fifty full time people form the core of the staff which increases to around two hundred during the peak spring season. Our full time staff includes individuals well versed in horticultural knowledge, office management, and craftsmanship. Our seasonal staff includes many returnees each spring. Having a returning work force helps to maintain consistent standards in our growing and order processing.
Without this committed group of people, Quality Greenhouses would not have achieved the growth and success it has enjoyed each year since 1986. Our goal is to produce a “quality grown” product and to work with our customers to provide that product in a timely manner. Our belief is that “quality grown” products will sell. This belief is proving to be true as Quality Greenhouses continues to expand.
