Grower or Broker? Who to turn to for your plants.

Pacific Nurseries | Grower + Plant Broker

If the wholesale nursery you go to “grows” the plants you need for your projects, why would a landscape pro ever need a “plant broker”?

It’s all about you. And your clients.

We know that your customers demand a lot from you. And we also know that projects often require very specific plants to make them a success. For those special needs, and to ensure your a success with your client, a plant broker may be just the ticket.

Why? Because a plant broker is interested in providing the exact plants you’re looking for. Not just the plants that a grower has on their inventory list—or the one’s they’re trying to get rid of.

Relationships and experience make the difference.

A quality plant broker should have deep resource knowledge and be able to tap well-established and long-standing relationships with other specialty growers so that they can get you just the right plants to meet your needs and your project’s budget.

Over the last 160 years we’ve learned a thing or two about who provides quality plant materials and who we can turn to to find the specialty item that you’re looking for. Whether it’s exotic palms, a group of espalier fruit trees or ball and burlap multi-trunk specimens, our trusted network and relationships enable us to fill your plant order with the plants that will satisfy your clients and make you look your best.

As the oldest wholesale nursery in California, we’ve been delivering great quality plants and expert service to Bay area landscape professionals since 1869. Our over 36 acres of growing facilities in the Colma, Stockton and San Martin growing grounds, provide an incredible variety of trees, shrubs and ground covers, all acclimated to thrive in our unique Bay Area environment and climate.

But we know we can’t always have everything that you need in the size, quantity and configuration that your project demands. That’s why we serve our landscape professional clients as trusted plant brokers too.

Pacific Nurseries | Plant grower & broker

As both a grower or plant broker, we do out best to get you exactly the plants you need.


Grower. Broker. Do I really need both?

Our valued customers don’t know the difference between when we work as a plant broker or a plant grower. That’s because all they have to do is provide us with the specifications of the plants they’re looking for. It’s our job to source them and manage how to get them to you when they’re needed.

Once we assemble your plant order, we can make arrangements to deliver your plants in one of our regularly scheduled deliveries right to your job site. We can also make arrangements for a custom delivery or just consolidate your order and have it ready for pick up in the Will Call area at our Colma growing grounds and sales office.

Looking for a specialty item?

If you’re looking for feature plants or unusual items that aren’t your vanilla variety of trees, shrubs or ground covers, we should talk. We can provide an Estimate for any specialty item. And even better, we offer them at competitive prices that make turning to just another plant grower a lot less attractive.

Give us a call at 650.7552332 to learn more. Or attach your plant specification list to our convenient online Estimate and Order form. As both a plant broker and grower, we look forward to helping you succeed by getting you just what you’re looking for.
