DeVry Greenhouses has joined the ThinkPlants network of breeders, growers, and suppliers. This new addition to the ThinkPlants family continues to expand the growing portfolio of genetics and broaden the reach ThinkPlants and its suppliers and customers have in the North American market.
DeVry Greenhouses, headquartered in Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada, is the newest addition to the growing list of participants.
“We continue to work on increasing the presence of ThinkPlants perennials in Canada. The addition of DeVry Greenhouses as a young plant producer and participant is a strategic move to reach a larger number of growers in Western Canada,” says Joey Wiseman, Director of ThinkPlants.
DeVry Greenhouses has announced the start of a perennial young plant program representing a good list of perennial genetics that are part of the ThinkPlants program.

“We look forward to expanding our perennial rooting business,” says Pete DeVry, Owner of DeVry Greenhouses. “We feel that being a part of the ThinkPlants program will help get the word out.”
The addition of DeVry Greenhouses membership within ThinkPlants comes on the heels of other new member additions in the past year: Linwell Gardens and Monrovia Nursery. Group members also include Danziger, Syngenta Flowers, Creekside Greenhouses, Green Circle Growers, Gulley Greenhouses, Headstart Nursery, James Greenhouses, Kapiteyn, Kieft Seed, Kiwiflora, Plants Management Australia, Royal Van Zanten, Terra Nova Nurseries, and Unex Inc.
“ThinkPlants was developed with the grower in mind,” Wiseman says. “Not only did we want to build a portfolio of outstanding genetics, but we also knew a strong supply chain was equally important for perennial growers in North America. We are confident that the recent additions of young plant suppliers in Canada will help expand access to the great perennials and first-class breeders we represent.”
Each ThinkPlants participant brings expertise in plant breeding, horticulture, technical support, supply chain, production, sales, and marketing. It is the strength of these companies working together,that creates such a powerful resource for the North American nursery industry.
