Horticulture

Horticulture

Our Horticulture Enterprise began with two greenhouses and a small tree farm. It has grown to 47
greenhouses with specialized environments for bedding plants, plant propagation, transplanting, and
showroom/sales. Our citizens now grow approximately 500,000 plants each year. Plants are sold to the
general public and some wholesale customers.

Production

Our horticulture department produces approximately 37,000 Poinsettias each year. The citizens plant 25,000- 30,000 plants a week, depending on the season, in our Planting and Propagation

Shops. We propagate ~50% of the plants grown at Brookwood and produce a variety of perennials, bedding plants, hanging baskets, and poinsettias, as well as special orders for wholesale and retail trade.
