Botany Lane Expands Young Plant Production
Botany Lane Greenhouse, a plant producer of finished tropical plants, succulents and specialty annuals for IGCs in the Western United States, has expanded to provide young plants for growers and grower-retailers.
“We are excited, in particular, to offer a large selection (over 300 varieties) of succulent liners, including over 50 varieties of Echeveria. The succulent program is now in its 10th year of development and only growing,” says Managing Partner and General Manager Scott Fulton. “New gardeners and millennials are fascinated with the colors, shapes, and ease of care offered by succulents. We want our retailers to be able to capitalize on this multigenerational demand with a superior product. Our ‘mile high’ light and cool night temperatures are perfect for producing succulents with high color and texture.”
In addition to liners, Botany Lane has also expanded its retail-ready succulent planters to match the indoor/outdoor demand for modern and traditional garden consumers.
They continue to add to their list of unique and high-quality finished annuals, perennials, and tropicals, providing these items in high-end non-traditional containers such as moss baskets, larger sizes, fiber pots, and patio-ready containers.
Sought-after young plant products include flowering tropicals (bougainvillea, Hollywood Hibiscus, and Summer Romance Mandevilla), specialty crops (cordyline hybrids, geraniums, ensete, and specialty accent plants), and, of course, the succulent liners.
Plants, both finished and young, are produced in 827,640 square feet of environmentally controlled production, one acre of shade houses, and 10 acres of field production at three locations across two states.
