Your Go-To Garden Center
In the Spring of 1969, Scott Creach set out to grow tomatoes for himself and his wife Imogene. Without much experience, he cared for these plants and soon realized he over-committed. With too many tomatoes for his personal garden, he asked Imogene to try to sell the extra plants to local garden centers. Store owners were so impressed with the quality of the tomato plants that they bought them by the hundreds.
There was just one problem: the stores wanted to buy more plants for future years. That was when Jim Fox of Fox Milling suggested that Scott and Imogene should start growing bedding plants for wholesale in the Spokane area. Scott and Imogene replied saying they didn’t know how to raise bedding plants, to which Mr. Fox said, “You can learn, can’t you?”
Five decades later, this family-grown business has grown on the exact farm location where Scott Creach planted those first tomatoes. We may be off the beaten path, but our roots are deep here at The Plant Farm®.
Most of the plant material we sell is grown onsite by our parent company, Creach Greenhouse. Their motto is “Family Owned… Locally Grown ~ See the Difference”… and we think you will.
Big box stores and other local garden centers simply cannot match the selection and variety available at The Plant Farm®. From rare and specialty plants, houseplants, bedding plants, hanging baskets, and more - we care for these plants from seed to sale to provide the healthiest possible addition to your plant collection.
