Four Star Greenhouse's Program
Four Star’s reputation as an industry leader continues to grow with their high-quality cutting-grown liner (vegetative) annuals, perennials and shrubs in the Proven Winners® program.
Annuals, Herbs, Grasses, and Shrubs
Maximize profits using quality young plants and products grown in Four Star’s 20 + acres of greenhouses, outdoors gardens that have been rigorously tested and trialed prior to market introduction. Add the signature white pots along with standout POP signage and social media call outs to create a store within a store. Customers consistently seek the PW brand to enhance their landscapes and gardens with a product that outperforms all others in the industry in superior genetics and quality.
Take the guesswork out of creating beautiful and lasting combinations with the Bundled Combination Program. With Four Star’s Bundled Kits, Bundled Lite Kits and new Premium Bundled Kits, recipes arrive with a tray of each component, specific combination tags and planting card to make the design and production flawless. Your hanging baskets and upright containers will never look better!
