Mountain Valley Growers USDA Certified Organic Herb, Perennial and Vegetable Plants

 
 

 

PLANT SIZES

Our standard "3 inch " nursery container.

All varieties are available in 2 3/4 inch pots. The nursery industry calls this size a 3 inch pot.

The plants range in height from one-inch for something like a creeping thyme to four inches for something like a scented geranium or other hard wood plant.

Some varieties are also available in plug trays. A lot of our ground cover thymes and creeping oreganos are grown in plug trays. If you need a lot of one kind of plant, this is the way to go. Plugs are 3/4 of an inch by about 3/4 of an inch. Small but mighty!

 In 1983, Mountain Valley Growers was incorporated with the goal of providing organically grown pots of herbs to retail nurseries and grocery stores. There were a whopping 7 varieties then. In 1990, we brought these same plants to the retail consumer through mail order. By then we supplied about 300 varieties. In 1992, we began publishing a quarterly newsletter, Mountain Valley Views, to inform and share our experiences with others. In 1993, our specialty herb gardens hit the market to make choosing from so many plants a cinch. In 1995, we began drop-shipping organic plants for other companies.

By 1997, the internet was a reality and we introduced ourselves online with over 200 pages of information and photos. In 1998, the nursery, in keeping with its original goals, became certified organic and we launched our newsletter via email. 2000 saw the creation of a weekly availability list that made getting the plants you wanted when you wanted them even easier.

 In 2002, we became certified organic by the USDA; our website contained over 450 pages; and our varieties numbered near 400. In 2004, we expanded our Grower's Assortments to offer more plants at great prices and paired our Specialty Herb Gardens with Special Books. In 2006, we became the first nursery to offer certified organic strawberry plants by mail.  In 2008, we created our Organic Farmstand Collection of Vegetables, a line of over 40 organically grown vegetable plants. We continue to add new and exciting plants, review books and products. In 2010, we added Twitter to our list of internet tools and it has become a great way to communicate more spontaneously our daily thoughts and ideas. And, we add only those we know will help you garden successfully, because they have helped us to do so. In 2013, we added common name sorting to our in stock availability list which lets you locate plants faster when only the common name is known. 2013 also saw us creating a lot of interesting boards on Pinterest which became a great way to share knowledge others have about the plants we grow. In 2014, we created a new division to allow you to order plug trays online instead of by FAX. This division, PlugTrays.com, should allow for easier access to those wishing to secure a plug tray while they are in stock.

Organic Perennials? 

Why bother? Nobody is going to eat what is sprayed on them,...at least immediately. Ornamental plant nurseries use many strong pesticides, herbicides and fungicides that eventually end up in unwanted places. We work daily to perfect the process for organic nursery production so we can bring you beautiful organic Herbs and Perennials. We want to make sure that there are organic herbs and flowers in every pot

We hope you enjoy the fruits of our labors.
