A Tradition of Quality
Since 1952, we have been dedicated to providing the highest quality plant material for the Independent Garden Center channel. We grow over 2,000 varieties of trees, shrubs, vines, perennials, and patio plants providing a "one stop" source for green goods. As a family-owned, wholesale-only nursery, we partner with leading independent garden centers and distributors throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states.
Our Products -- Over 2,000 varieties of shrubs, trees, vines, and perennials are grown on a total of approximately 290 acres. Container production involves over 2.7 million sq. ft. of coverable growing space.
Our Market -- We sell to independent garden centers and distributors within a 300+ mile radius of Bridgeton, New Jersey.
Our beginning traces back to 1952 when the nursery was founded by John and Jean Overdevest. What started out as an immigrant’s dream, soon developed into a small operation specializing in Azaleas, Rhododendrons, Dogwoods, and Japanese Maples. With the energy and determination that has proven to be the hallmark of our nation’s immigrants, the nursery expanded and prospered.
The Next Generation
We are proud to continue in this same spirit as we continue our expansion and diversification. Fittingly, these efforts are admirably accomplished by yet another wave of immigrants and others who through their ancestors share that same bond of coming to America for a chance to better themselves and their families.
Sustainable From The Start
We have embraced environmentally-conscious growing practices from the very beginning – whether it is recycling irrigation water, integrated pest management, or using renewable potting substrates. In 2012 we formally acknowledged our commitment to sustainability by achieving the rigorous requirements of the Veriflora® Sustainable Grown certification program -- recognized as the gold standard of sustainability in the floriculture and horticulture industries. To this day, we are one of a select few wholesale nurseries to carry the distinction of Veriflora® certification.
