George Peters began doing business as Peters Supply Company in 1982, selling a variety of products to nurseries regionally. Eventually, the focus of the business soon became pottery and planters, and our name was changed to George Peters Wholesale Pottery.
When the business began years ago, most of the planters sold in retail stores were terra cotta flower pots. In recent years, with the influx of glazed planters from Asia, there are many other choices on the market, and we make an effort to keep a selection of glazed planters available in our inventory. But true to our roots, terra cotta pots are still our bread and butter.
Today, in addition to a wide selection of traditional terra cotta pots and glazed planters, we offer a variety of novelty planters and wooden trellises (which we manufacture from raw cypress wood.) We also inventory plastic saucers, both clear and terra cotta, and have a line of poly planters available that we have drop-shipped by order from the manufacturer.
We are not a retailer. From our warehouse in Shreveport, Louisiana, we supply independent garden centers, nurseries, and landscape professionals in Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Alabama. Most deliveries are made on our own vehicle.
By offering small minimums, dependable service, and quality products at reasonable prices, we have built many long term, mutually beneficial relationships that have proven invaluable. We know that working together with our customers can be good for us both.
Keeping a small business alive in an ever changing market is never an easy task, but because of the confidence that our customers have shown in our service, we continue to stay viable. Many thanks to all of our customers!
