Decker’s Nursery Joins Bower & Branch as Grower
Bower & Branch, Trees for Life, announced it is continuing expansion with the addition of Decker’s Nursery as a grower member fulfilling online consumer orders through its garden retailer members.
Decker’s Nursery joins Bower & Branch as part of an exclusive group of grower members and will step into the network with an early focus on container-grown shrubs and evergreens beginning late summer 2017.
“We have an affinity for family businesses like Brian Decker’s because our core values are closely aligned,” said Sid Raisch, president and CEO of Bower & Branch. “There’s a strong foundation of truth in everything they do, from creating positions for highly skilled and professional staff to making sound long-term financial decisions,” added Raisch. “Investing in automation is one of those decisions that has helped them maintain a history of excellence and a reputation for looking to the future, now joining with Bower & Branch is another.”
The Columbus, Ohio-based business is internationally recognized as a propagation center that specializes in grafting and rooting of cuttings as well as finished retail-ready plant material. “The Bower & Branch program offers us a fantastic portal to reach retail consumers,” said Brian Decker, president of Decker’s Nursery. “This is something that has been on my mind, but outside my reach for years. We will be growing higher quality items than what are currently available in the wholesale market, and as Bower & Branch continues to recruit a wide range of quality growers around the country, they will be able to offer an unprecedented diversity and new, licensed plant introductions,” said Decker. “Everyone wins by taking advantage of this opportunity.”
