This year’s guide features new varieties while maintaining Emerald Coast’s ornamental grass program and expanding its perennial plants line.
Jonathan Babikow, Emerald Coast Growers’ new general manager/head grower for its Lancaster, PA, location, talks about his favorite perennials, the advantages of growing in Pennsylvania, and his future hopes for his career.
The popularity of native plants is rising as gardeners become conscious of the need to plant more pollinator gardens. The challenge is to select the right plants to put in them.
Florida-based liner producer Emerald Coast Growers custom retrofitted and expanded an existing greenhouse, with the goal of increasing production efficiency.
The new facility is designed to increase the company’s control over inventory, sowing rates, germination percentages, and growing conditions.
Growers have no shortage of choices in the ornamental grass market. Narrowing down the selection comes down to finding the right plant for the right purpose.
The new gutter-connected double-poly range is 36,864 square feet, bringing Emerald Coast Growers’ total growing area under cover to more than 500,000 square feet.
