We mean business
“Words have power. Use them wisely.” At Burpee, words are everything.
We say what we mean and mean what we say – and stand behind
what we offer.

When it’s stated that we have great tasting vegetables with outstanding
garden performance, you can be confident that this is exactly what you will
get. We know this because our products are extensively trialed all across
the country to be big performers and ensure optimum growth. Among our
product selection, you will also find many top disease-resistant varieties.
These “superhero” plants are highlighted in this catalog (see page 17).

Burpee offers superior plants so that your consumers can trust our brand
and be successful gardeners. Growing the right homegrown vegetables and
herbs translates to abundant yields and flavorful, creative dishes – meaning
our products go from garden to table.                                                      Tim Duffin


We also work hard to make strong, personal connections with our growers, and to
provide all the information and tools you need to effectively grow and sell Burpee
plants. Many of these marketing tools, eye-catching point-of-purchase materials and
other resources are featured in this catalog (and below). Beyond that, we now have
the power of the entire Ball Horticultural company behind you. We have expanded our
sales force and support team for more opportunities to address your individual needs
and questions. We want our success to be your success.

You will find that we mean business. We are serious
about what we do and are dedicated to being the
very best. Let us help you take consumers from
gardening, to cooking, to enjoying their own
harvest at the dinner table.
