Valleybrook Gardens is one of North America's largest growers of herbaceous perennials with over 1500 varieties in our lineup. We are a leader in the industry with our innovative marketing and strict, consistent quality standards.
Valleybrook’s focus is you, the independent retail garden centre. Our goal is to help you differentiate your garden centre from the mass merchants and to help you grow your business profitably. You will not see our branded products like Heritage Perennials®, Jeepers Creepers® , or Rock Stars® at the corner store that opens for 4 weeks in spring, nor will you see them at the Home Depots and Canadian Tires in your market. We are committed entirely to you.

We pack a lot of value into a little pot!
However, we all know that added value and features don’t mean a thing if the plant material doesn’t look good. Even low prices don’t result in profits if the plants just sit on your bench.
The thing we do best, and have always done best, is grow superb quality plants that your customers will find irresistible. Every pot you receive from us has been individually hand picked, cleaned, weeded, top dressed and tagged in a strict quality control process. In fact, in our annual customer survey of our top garden centres, Valleybrook has consistently been rated #1 in quality over other major perennial suppliers year after year.
Try HERITAGE™ Perennials®, Rock Stars® and Jeepers Creepers™ on your bench this season! We think they’ll sell faster than any other perennial line you carry. And that means more money where it belongs: in your pocket, not on the bench.
