Orange, Calif.-based Village Nurseries, a specialty wholesale grower for landscape professionals, is now offering the Sunset Western Garden Collection to California landscape professionals and Southern California Home Depot stores, as well as select other retail garden centers throughout California.
Village Nurseries is the exclusive grower for the 29-plant Sunset Western Garden Collection under license from Plant Development Services which, in turn, is licensed by Sunset Publishing Corp. The collection is characterized by top-performing plants selected especially for Western gardens with their unique climate, rainfall, year round temperature, wind and humidity.
“We feel the Sunset Western Garden Collection is a natural fit for our continued expansion of water efficient, climatically correct plants,” said Brian Parker, lawn and garden merchant - Southern California for The Home Depot. “Our Southern California partnership with local water agencies has been critical to our development of a more regionalized product mix specific to our geographic area. Saving time, water and money is in everyone’s best interest. As the demand for these types of hybridized plants increase, we want our customers to know they can count on The Home Depot to meet their needs.”
Village Nurseries CEO David House said the company's goal is to bring out "new and superior plant materials."
