About Our PowerPlugs™

The Growing Process
These are cultivated top-quality perennial plugs to support customers in growing high-grade finished plants. We love our country and this world. We live and work on this land, and we seek to maintain our environment's health for future generations.

Utilizing the most efficient growing medium for our perennials, closely monitoring its composition and the initial potting of young plants. Avoiding media compaction, a consistent supply of water and oxygen promotes robust root development.

Each plug cultivated starts with a micronutrient package and a specialized fertilization program tailored to the individual needs of each perennial. We meticulously time our feedings, adjusting as the season advances. This allows the plants to go naturally dormant for winter.

Beneficial insects and biologicals have been our first line of defense for combating pests in our greenhouses. Our producers are, and always has been, free of neonicotinoids. The integrated pest management system helps catch many issues before they progress. The facilities meet quarantine standards for Japanese beetles, allowing us to ship year-round to customers with this restriction.

The stock is planted in summer and allows nature time to do her business, we deliver heavily rooted, bulked up, vernalized PowerPlugs to our customers every spring. The extra growing time on our end ensures the plugs will take off at lightning speed for our customers who are looking for quick growth. We ship PowerPlugs year-round and nearly all of our winter and spring shipments are vernalized.

PowerPlugs are a vibrant mass of stored energy ready to fill your pots quickly and fully. Their heavy crowns with multiple growing points form impressive tops while the primary roots dive deep into the heart of the finished containers. These solid roots and crowns are an integral part of our customers’ success.

Constantly monitor the growth of the crops, sorting and grading as they grow. Each plug is inspected before it is shipped, ensuring consistent crops with even finish times at your facility.

We know that strongly rooted crops with heavy crowns are the foundation to for successful perennials, and we work every day to provide that for all of our customers, old and new, big and small, whether you’re located in the next town, across the country, or one of our friendly neighbors to the North.

Quick Turn 30s
The larger soil volume and robust root systems of our 30ct plugs help them finish quickly and reliably. In an imperfect world, large plugs are better at buffering transplant shock, scheduling mistakes, temperature fluctuations and watering irregularities that can stunt smaller plugs.

Channeled by the ribs of the Star-30 trays, the primary roots grow downward and avoid wrapping around the cell. Once planted into 1-gal containers, these large plugs start to form their root system in the heart of the container, finishing much faster than small plugs.

Nearly all of the perennials we offer are available in 30ct plugs.
