Bill and April Hutchinson founded the Plant & Supply Locator in August 1992. The LOCATOR has become a household name for anyone in the horticulture industry looking to buy, sell or specify plant material and allied products. The monthly magazine contains up-to-date pricing and availability from hundreds of quality growers and suppliers throughout USDA hardiness zones 2-8. The LOCATOR has become one of the most timesaving tools for thousands of horticultural professionals throughout the Southeast, Northeast, and Midwest.
In addition to the LOCATOR, we offer hundreds of horticultural books, software and CD-ROM programs containing color photographs, scientific data, and pricing and availability for thousands of varieties of landscape material, all available from Hutchinson Publishing.
Hutchinson Publishing extended its plant locating and buying process by founding a plant brokerage service in 2000. GreenSource Direct, Inc. is a full service brokerage division that allows customers to focus their efforts on installing material, not coordinating plant sourcing and shipping for their jobs.
Over the years, Hutchinson Publishing has received many requests to offer a full line of marketing services to the Green Industry. In May of 2005, Hutchinson Publishing began its quest to help all Green Industry professionals market their plant and hard good products through the new services of Green Media by Plant & Supply Locator. Green Media offers exhaustive media services by designing and developing websites, postcards, brochures, catalogs and direct mail marketing campaigns.
Hutchinson Consulting, Inc., another division of Hutchinson Publishing offers Horticultural consulting to help introduce new products into the market. Hutchinson Consulting has helped many new products get a head start into both wholesale and retail nursery markets.
Hutchinson Publishing is dedicated to providing our valued advertisers and subscribers with the most current and helpful information possible. The LOCATOR magazine and our many other products are designed to streamline and simplify the process each horticultural professional goes through when designing a landscape, purchasing material for a landscape installation, or showing the industry the quality products and services they have to offer. It is our goal to help you with any question you may have regarding the horticultural industry and all of our representatives will be more than happy to assist you and your business with continued growth and success in the years to come.
