Back in 1938, the founder offered many universities and professionals free plants for research and as supplements in more exceptional gardening areas. And to this day, our family-owned company still backs the founder's wishes to donate to fit the needs of non-profits, gardening bloggers and also universities for further studies and to help our planet stay beautiful. Plants fight pollution, provide fresh air, clean the environment, beautify and protect. And our motto is "Why to throw away what could be someone else's treasure.
