Florists & Events
Plainview Growers is the largest Phalaenopsis orchid grower in the New York Metropolitan area. Plainview recognized that Phalaenopsis orchids are the top selling flower for floral design, weddings and special events and in 2007, started importing Phalaenopsis orchids from Taiwan.
These Taiwanese orchids and growing protocols combined with Plainview’s state of the art production enables Pure Beauty Orchids to market florist grade quality orchids to the mass merchants. All Pure Beauty Orchids are produced in sphagnum moss, which produces a much stronger plant , holds more moisture than bark , and also extends the shelf life.
Pure Beauty’s Phalaenopsis program consists of 3” micro mini orchids, 4” and 5” orchids, and a wide array of orchid gardens and planters. Add our exclusive ColorFuze Orchids to this selection and the floral departments orchid stand is complete.
Plainview is also in the process of starting an orchid cut flower division to supply this market with locally grown , and fresh cut. From a 10 plant order to 500 plant order, Plainview will always offer the same level of quality and service that a flower shop requires.
Annual sales continue through the summer with fresh crops of heat tolerant annuals and lead right into our fall program of chrysanthemums, pansies, cabbage/kale and ornamental peppers. Plainview’s large fleet of temperature controlled trucks enable us to deliver store door anywhere in the northeast.
Superior Products & Services
The Plainview Family of Quality Plant Products
Plainview Growers was established in 1985 as a finished bedding plant and potted crop producer servicing garden centers and florists in the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area. Our square footage was 75,000 feet, and among the very first crops we produced were poinsettias and spring annuals. Customers consisted mainly in those days of Independent Garden Centers and Wholesalers.
Our Allamuchy facility, over 310 acres of prime New Jersey farmland, was purchased to house a 90,000 square foot greenhouse, and a 25,000 square foot warehouse. A year later, the first plants were produced and shortly after an additional 130,000 square feet of greenhouse was added. By March of 2005, production at the Allamuchy facility was completely automated including sowlines, transplanting, fixing and table movement.
Today, Plainview Growers has expanded to achieve a deep level of penetration into supermarket chains, box stores and various floral businesses like 1.800.Flowers. Plainview Growers and the Van Vugt family today stand ready with our nearly 30 years of growing experience and a qualified catalog of industry successes to meet your needs with the very best product that can be grown and shipped.
