About Millcreek Gardens

Millcreek Gardens is built around an experienced team of growers and customer service members. We employ 26 full-time, and up to 50 additional seasonal workers. Our team includes many Horticulture or plant science graduates, who all share in the day-to-day growing and customer care responsibilities. Our knowledgeable team produces and sells over 1,000,000 containers of premium quality annuals, herbs, perennials, ferns, ornamental grasses, peonies, shrubs, succulents, and vines each year. Meet our team members below.

In 2018, we celebrated our 40th year in business at Millcreek Gardens. Our vision when we started in 1978 was to grow high-quality perennials, herbs, and woody shrubs for the Independent Garden Centers and Landscapers in Ohio and surrounding states. Today we are still strongly committed to this vision, even as our business and product line has evolved through the years. We are committed to working to be your primary source for Perennials, Herbs, Annuals, and other outdoor garden plants as a price that represents a good value for you and your customers. We strive to strengthen our partnership with you by offering the best plants, information, and the outstanding customer service you deserve. THANK YOU!
