Shrubs


Green Gate Farms is excited to launch a new plant category for us--Shrubs! A shrub (or bush) is a small to medium-sized woody plant. It is distinguished from a tree by its multiple stems and shorter height, usually under 20 ft tall. Low-maintenance, easy-care shrubs may include colorful blooming and decorative foliage plants. They return year after year, expanding to fill in spaces in borders. As they grow and become established, their vigor and resilience increases. 


Our shrubs are in trade 2-gallon pots. We grow a FINISHED product, not plugs or starter plants, to the wholesale trade only. We also have perennials that have a shrub-like growth included on this page and they are in trade 1-gallon pots. Call us today for our current availability!
