Dutchmaster Nurseries wins AIPH bronze

Brougham, Ont.,-based Dutchmaster Nurseries earned bronze in the finished plants and trees category at the 2016 International Association of Horticulture Producers (AIPH) International Grower of the Year Awards. Winners were announced at a gala dinner as part of IPM in Essen Germany on Jan. 28.

Top prize went to Costa Farms, one of North America’s largest growers of ornamental plants, for its wide variety of “plants, including houseplants, orchids, indoor and outdoor cacti and succulents, tropical shrubs, annual bedding plants and perennial bedding plants.”

Majestic Trees of the U.K. won silver and China’s Dashun International Flower also won bronze to round out the finished plants and trees category.

Dutchmaster was described by AIPH as “one of the leading wholesale nurseries in Ontario producing trees, shrubs, and perennials for wholesale purposes and shipping throughout Eastern Canada and the Eastern United States. It prides itself in being the best it can be at growing and supplying its products, and knowing that there are many excellent growers in Canada and beyond, the company looks for ways to set itself apart.”
