Altman Plants services many of our country's leading national retailers and super markets, including The Home Depot, Lowe's Home Improvement, Orchard Supply Hardware, Walmart and many independent nurseries. We help to supply the nation with quality live plants from the following locations:
Altman Plants is based in Vista, California, located in the North County area of San Diego. Our Southern California facilities include North San Diego and Riverside Counties, which include 675 acres of production with 3 million square feet of greenhouse. As the largest wholesale grower of cactus in North America we offer an extensive program of over 1000 species in sizes ranging from 2½" to 10 foot tall specimens. Every plant is labeled by genus and species.
The cactus program is called The Cactus Collection, and is grown in San Diego County. We also grow 4¼"annuals and perennials, quart perennials, grasses, ferns and lilies, as well as 1-gallon annuals, perennials and ornamental grasses, hanging baskets, herbs, vegetables, and a complete line of bedding plants in San Diego County.
At our Altman Plants facility in Lake Mathews in the county of Riverside, California, we grow our flowering annuals and perennials, along with grasses, ferns, lilies, herbs, vegetables, and bedding plants. This 670 acre facility also serves as a major distribution center for much of California and parts of Nevada and Arizona.
Altman Plants' newest location, in Peyton, Colorado, covers 400 acres and features a contiguous 32-acre Greenhouse Production Facility. The state-of-the-art facility is complete with automated environmental controls, irrigation booms, and plant conveyor systems allowing for rapid and efficient production of plants and vegetables.
Altman Plants' Texas Facility is located between Austin and Houston in the town of Giddings. The facility, once completed, will include 36 acres of growing grounds and a large on-site water collection and retention system. This facility services the Houston and Dallas markets, as well as Eastern Texas.
Salinas, on the central coast of California, is the country's premiere growing ground for vegetables such as lettuce, broccoli and strawberries. We have found it is also the perfect climate for growing top quality annuals and perennials. From this facility of 120 acres, with 1.5 million square feet of greenhouse we service our northern and central California customers as far north as Redding, south to Santa Barbara and as far east as Bakersfield.
Complementing our distribution capabilities are 75 acres of mostly outdoor production with 600,000 square feet of greenhouse and shade structure facilities in Loxahatchee, Florida. From here we ship to the east coast and the Florida markets. Our product line in Florida includes The Cactus Collection, ornamental and blooming plants, herbs, veggies and assorted palms, including Majesty, Adonida, Chinese Fan, Phoenix Roebeleinii, and C. cataractarum.
Our facility in Phoenix, Arizona, includes 10 acres with 35K sq feet of greenhouse. From here, we distribute our complete product line to the Arizona market. This includes The Cactus Collection, ornamental and blooming plants and grasses, herbs, and veggies.
