Established in 1945, Sells Plant Company Inc is a family owned and operated wholesale plant distrubutor. Originally a transplant vegetable grower, providing local produce farmers with plant material. All vegetable plugs were grown in fields from seed. When the plant plugs reached their proper maturity, they were then extracted from the field and bundled, ready to be picked up and transplanted into the customers field where they could completely mature and be harvested. Growing transplant vegetables was discontinued in 1982. Flowers were the future.... It was not until 1983 that we began growing bedding plants. The first four greenhouses were erected in the mid 1970s. These four houses are our largest at 250' each. The early 1990s saw nine more greenhouses built. These houses are a bit smaller at 150' each. Three shade houses (150' each) were built in 1994. The most recent addition is a smaller house used solely for holding plant plugs until they are ready for transplanting into containers. This brings the total number of houses to 17. All are metal framed houses with thick clear poly tops, adjustable curtains on each side, and propane heated. The three shade houses are wood framed with black shade cloth tops and are not heated. Each house can be watered by hand via hose and wand, or automated timed sprinklers can be activated. Including all greenhouses, our maximum capacity is around 40,000 trays.
We consider Sells Plant Company a small business that enjoys dealing with customers on a personal level. Most of our current customers we know by name and have enjoyed getting to know them over the years. "You've got to have a little fun."
