About Us


Welby Gardens is the exclusive grower of Hardy Boy Plants. We offer the best selection of annuals, perennials, ornamental grasses and organic herbs & vegetables.

Our plants are only sold by independent garden centers and professional landscapers. These garden centers and landscapers agree with the Hardy Boy philosophy of quality, integrity, sound horticultural advice and great customer service.


Welby Gardens has a rich family history with roots in the industry dating back 69 years. Alex and Esther Gerace bought the land and began farming with a horse and plow in 1948. Back then growing flowers was the last thing on their mind; it was all about growing vegetables to feed the family.

In 1948, the first glass greenhouse was erected for vegetable starts, but it wasn’t until 1955 that the first geraniums were grown to sell at the farmers market. Esther’s love for flowers inspired Welby Gardens to grow the business in the bedding plant market, and combined with the success in sales the Welby Gardens we know today was born.
