West River Greenhouses is a family owned & operated greenhouse business that has specialized in growing outdoor ornamental plants, vegetables and more since 1973. Over 40+ years in the business, the Parkers have continued to emphasize the production of top quality plants with low impact on the environment.
Plants are our passion and the earth is in the package deal. As growers ourselves we have opportunities to purchase large quantities of products that are less harmful to our environment. We believe our customers should have the same options available to them. Through trials of our own we have gathered a collection of products that are less harmful to the environment yet still work well. We can help you select the product you need to compete with the problem you have whether you're in need of: Pest Control; Soil Amendments; Fertilizers; Weed Control; Disease Control.
We have the products and can advise you on what to do to help turn your problem around and grow the garden you intended. Lets get back into the cultural and physical controls our grandparents used to keep gardens at their best. Planting in the 'right spot', mulching and keeping your plants competitive and healthy will go a long way. Plus, a couple caterpillar holes in your cabbage or a little mildew on your roses isn't a sign your a bad gardener, just that you have a healthy ecosystem.
