For Growers or Importers

 Resources, programs, and news tailored for you and your businesses!

We offer a wealth of free resources for growers and importers, so you can easily find information to help you solve production problems, recruit labor, market your products, and ultimately sell beautiful plants that make your customers want to return for more. AFE staff and board members actively converse with industry professionals to identify the important issues you face today. Through innovative research and resources that best serve the dynamic needs and demographics of all industry sectors, our initiatives have transformed industry practices and resulted in cost and labor savings, better plants, and increased profit for over 60 years.

The interns we have hosted through our partnership with the AFE have a passion for plants and have been very successful at our facilities. Their enthusiasm and dedication inspire our team, reminding us all of why we are in this industry!
