Many Bay Area Landscape Professionals frequently tell us that they enjoy discovering, selecting, and finding plants in our Colma Growing Grounds. This sprawling facility is the longest operating wholesale nursery in California.
Conveniently located on the Peninsula near highway 101 between San Francisco and San Jose, our growing grounds have evolved over the last 150 years to accommodate an ever-growing inventory of plants, propagation + plant development, special contract-grow requirements, and much more.
Within the many diverse areas of our wholesale nursery, we do our best to ensure the healthy growth of plants that are optimized for the micro-climates of the Bay Area.
Finding plants in Colma Growing Grounds is easy
We recognize that your time is valuable and that there’s room for improvement in getting around our dispersed Colma Growing Grounds.
As a result, we’ve recently reorganized and rearranged many parts of our facility to make reviewing our selection of plants easier and more efficient for you. When our sales staff directs you to a location within the Colma Growing Grounds, we want you to simply get there to find the exact plants that you’re looking for.
What’s more, with the help of our partners at TeamworksCom, we’ve designed and implemented a new facility-wide signage program that offers many helpful benefits to Landscape Pros including:
- | Identify the location of each unique area within the Colma Growing Grounds
- | Easily navigate to a location when directed there by the sales staff
- | Locate the plants that you’re looking for in each area with easy-to-see plant bed identifiers
- | Comfortably get around to find plants, inspiration, and unusual specimens + sizes
- | Know exactly where your plant order is in our Will-Call area
- | Understand and avoid restricted areas where items are not for sale
So whether you’re walking around or driving in a vehicle, you can have confidence in knowing where you are in our facility and how to get to where you need to go—safely and efficiently.
Know where to go before you arrive
To compliment our new facility signage program, we’ve also developed detailed maps of all of the unique growing ground areas in Colma.
These detailed maps pinpoint each plant bed location with an alphanumeric identifier that is laid out simply and clearly. The result is you’ll be able to find the plants that you’re looking for in the place where they should be.
You can download the handy facility area maps just by clicking on the button below.
Or you can pick up a set of all of the Colma Growing Grounds Maps in our sales office by asking your customer service representative for them.
