History

Planters’ Choice, LLC, a full service wholesale nursery, was founded in March 1970 by Chuck Newman. The original nursery consisted of one propagation house and two fifty foot hoop houses.

To service customers, the Newtown location has a 15-acre sales yard that offers a complete line of nursery stock, as well as a diverse line of hard goods. The Watertown facility offers the same high quality product line and service on five acres.

Growing operations have expanded to encompass a state of the art four bay greenhouse as well as four others for propagation. Over 200 hoop houses are used for ornamental container production, encompassing 40 acres. There are currently six acres of perennial production in Watertown, and we started our move onto an additional four acres in the fall of 2012. Over 100 acres of field grown nursery stock exist on four farms in Watertown and Woodbury.

Planters’ Choice has sufficient land to be able to continue to expand all facets of the operation as demand for our top quality material increases, so keep in the loop with what’s happening by signing up for our weekly email!
