Wendy's Pick

 photo Wendy daylilies.jpg 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"! Summer is here and so many of the heat-loving perennials are in bloom and look great!

Here's a little info about Green Gate Farms: 

When you buy from us, you are buying:

  • Missouri-grown plants --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!
