Plants Unlimited, a Kalamazoo, Michigan-based company, was founded in 2006 by current owners Nirmal and Rachna Shah. Plants Unlimited now operates a 15-acre facility. Among others, the company produces mums, pansies, cabbage, kale and cyclamens, the latter being its primary winter production. As a contract grower, Plants Unlimited mainly sells to box stores and independent garden centers, and the company's crops come in a vast array of containers, including flats, hanging baskets and large containers.
To meet its objective of producing high quality plants year-round, Plants Unlimited has been using Berger's BM6 mix for all its crops for several years: "We have used Berger soil since I've been here as production manager," Steve Hordyk recalls.
