Our heated greenhouses are filling up! This section of House 3 is for our Heuchera crop and it already looks nice!
Ivy 'Teardrop' looks fantastic!
Greenhouses 3 and 4 are filled with perennials and groundcover, letting photosynthesis do its job! :)
Iris pallida 'Albo-Variegata' or Sweet Iris has gorgeous striped foliage! These were just planted and already are adorable!
Greenhouse 22 is the house we put tough perennials in--this house gets tons of sun--and Lavender fits that bill!! 'Phenomenal' is in front, 'Munstead' is behind it!
The ivies in House 20 are looking fabulous! Great for container plantings too!
Pachysandra terminalis flats have been planted since October because they take a long time to root. These look great on top and in our winters stay semi-evergreen in the landscape!
Greenhouse 5 is full of perennial gallons. We leave spaces to fit the carts for loading in spring!
Propagation House 2 always looks wonderful--like a patchwork quilt!
House 30 is an outside heated hoop house that we use for grasses! The girls are really talented at lining those pots like soldiers!
Did you know we are celebrating our 25th year in business?? Check out our "About Us" page that tells how we got started!
We are celebrating our 25th year in business this year! I've been with Green Gate Farms for 8 years already and working with plants never gets "old"!
Here's a little info about Green Gate Farms:
When you buy from us, you are buying:
Missouri-grown plants --All of the plants we sell are grown at Green Gate Farms and delivered locally (250 mile radius of the farm) in our truck the same week you place your order! Our delivery fees are very reasonable and your plants arrive looking as beautiful as they did when they left our place that same morning!
A finished, retail-ready product in gallons and flats with a nice photo tag. We do not grow plugs or starter plants. Each plant is hand-picked for you!
Bee-friendly, Neonic-free plants! In addition, our Asclepias (Milkweed) crop is treated only when necessary with a biological, non-systemic insecticide as to not harm the Monarch butterfly larvae (caterpillar) who's only diet is the leaves of milkweed plants!
The person taking your order (me!) is on-site and personally oversees each order as it is being processed! When you call GGF, I'm the one who answers the phone, too!
Plants that you can send back with our driver at the time of delivery if you are not 100% thrilled with them. We will credit your invoice on the spot--it's that easy!
Weekly deliveries to St Louis (Wednesdays) and Kansas City (Thursdays) all season long!
We are wholesale ONLY, do not sell to the public, nor will you ever find prices on this website. Therefore, you can freely use it with customers to show them plants--works great when you are talking to them over the phone!
If you have not ordered from us before, give us a try!

Click here for a great video from Monarch Watch about planting milkweed and nectar plants to help save the monarch butterfly!!
In my own garden, one Asclepias incarnata (swamp milkweed) plant "produced" over 60 monarch caterpillars!! Even a few milkweed plants can make a difference!
I want to send a big "THANK YOU" out to the Missouri Botanical Gardens for all of their assistance with plant questions, photos, and descriptions for this website!
