Who is Plants Nouveau and what do we do?

Plants Nouveau is a new plant introduction and marketing company. We don’t sell the plants on our website. We help plant breeders bring their plants to market by helping them through the introduction process.

Plants Nouveau was founded and now run by women.  Two hip and trendy, plant loving women who totally adore plants and garden a lot. We’re not talking about “weekend warriors”, we’re talking about intense gardens and whenever they can be outside, away from their desks, their hands are quite dirty. Co-owners Angela Treadwell-Palmer and Linda Guy work directly with the plant breeders to select plants that are perfect for the consumers in their market.  Every breeder and grower they work with is treated like family and that’s how they run their business.  It’s all personal and the personal relationships are what haveLinda_guy, Arie_Blom, plantsnouveau, new plants, breeding plants built Plants Nouveau to the well-respected company it is today.
