FOUNDERS & OWNERS

KEN & LEAH JAMES

22 years ago, Ken and Leah began James Greenhouses as a two person team with the goal of supplying quality perennial plugs and liners to southeastern growers. Today with a team of over 50 people they ship perennial, rose, hosta and helleborus liners across North America, and their unwavering quest to deliver a higher standard endures. These days their attention is focused mainly on business management, but you can still find Leah in the growing areas evaluating plant performance or Ken in the shop planning the next project at the greenhouse, a place that just keeps growing.
