company background

Proven Winners is the leading brand of high quality flowering plants

THE AIM OF PROVEN WINNERS is to introduce the best, most unique, high performing plants, producing them to maximum quality standards, and to market the plants in an innovative way.

Proven Winners plants are unsurpassed in terms of flowering, growth habit, disease resistance, and garden performance.

NO OTHER PLANT LINE goes through the same rigorous selection process, which takes 2-3 years and is carried out at facilities in the U.S. and Canada, as well as at trial stations in Europe, South Africa, and Japan. Most Proven Winner varieties are protected by plant patents and breeders’ rights. The viral control process in place is also second to none and sets Proven Winners apart from its competitors.

BESIDES PRODUCING BETTER PLANTS, Proven Winners is also credited with creating the “container gardening” craze, and introducing new plant genera. Most consumers had never heard of Bacopa, Nemesia, Verbena, etc. until Proven Winners pioneered these varieties.

it all starts with a better plant

The right plant for all places:

A plant with poor genetics or a limited range of performance requires more chemical inputs to survive and perform. Proven Winners searches the world to find and select plants which are clearly superior to others of their type and then trials them on sites in Michigan, New Hampshire, California, Germany, Japan, and Florida. This selection process means that the home gardener receives a higher performance product with fewer chemical inputs. These plants are more resistant to disease and insect pests, have heat and humidity tolerance and the broadest geographic range of superior performance. All of which means they require fewer insecticides and fungicides, perform well at lower fertility levels, and overall are just tougher, proven performers

protecting our plants and the consumer

Start healthy – stay healthy:

In addition to strenuous testing in order to assure consumer performance, Proven Winners goes the extra mile in protecting its plants and the consumers who use them. Every Proven Winners plant has been screened for plant disease and viral organisms. Why? So that when the plants arrive at your local garden centre, we know we have done everything possible to ensure our customers receive the healthiest plants possible. This means the gardener is more likely to succeed and more likely to value Proven Winners.

We want people to remember Proven Winners as the best plants they have ever grown! Hence our slogan: A Better Garden Begins with a Better Plant.

THE ULTIMATE GREEN PRODUCT

Educate for success:

One of the biggest causes of environmental pollution is a lack of education. Our primary commitment is to our consumers, which is why our website is designed to be a home gardener’s link to our network of experts in gardening advice and tips. Additionally, if we don’t know the answer we will send you to the people who do; because if our consumers are well informed they will have more success in the garden and make fewer mistakes that may have a negative environmental impact. Our website, webmail, and publications reach millions of gardeners annually with accurate information tailored to their specific location: advice on which plants do best in their area, how to water and fertilise, seasonal issues such as pruning and overwintering, lifestyle concepts, and most of all, a commitment to their success.
