Experience You Can Trust

Tagawa Greenhouses was born in 1967 when our grandfather, Frank Tagawa, and his 5 boys began producing vegetable transplants for their truck farming operation. During the next two decades, our young plants operation expanded by adding roses and carnations to the nursery, which grew the business significantly.

As time passed and cut flower production moved offshore, we adapted by increasing the production of plugs and liners that were sold to other greenhouses. We also focused on other aspects of the plant business, offering finished production of annual bedding, Easter lilies and poinsettias.

Today, we share the same values and goals as Grandpa “Jiichan” Frank Tagawa. At Tagawa Greenhouses, We produce annual and perennial seedlings and liners for more than 2,500 greenhouses across North America, including distribution under our InColor brand to national big box home improvement stores and grocery chains.

Just like the farmers we have proudly partnered with for 50 years, we understand we must continue to adapt in order to continue growing our business in future generations. help our business grow for the next three generations. Now, that said, we are excited to announce we have identified an exciting opportunity to expand our expansion into the hemp space under our new sister brand – PowerStarts. As we are always thinking ahead, Tagawa Greenhouses is now helping to support and strengthen the farming community as we expand into hemp and CBD production. We desire to offer an introduction into a new industry that will both be profitable and strengthen the farming community for generations to come.
