Network Partners for Retailers

SynRG’s mission is to accomplish more together than we could individually.

SynRG® is owned by five charter growers – Overdevest Nurseries LP, Prides Corner Farms Inc., Saunders Brothers Inc., Sheridan Nurseries Ltd and Willoway Nurseries Inc.

These growers collaborate with plant breeders from around the world and independent garden center retailers in the United States and Canada to test and evaluate new plants, with the goal of awarding only the best tested and most trusted new plants the Handpicked for You® trustmark.  This is not a new branding program, but rather a certification program that buyers can depend on.  The Handpicked for You® trustmark helps consumers make good choices while providing reassurance that each item identified with the trustmark has been rigorously tested and locally scrutinized, only making the final cut when the plant variety has proven its performance.  SynRG is a front-line trialing and testing network partner for GardenChoice™. 

To this end, SynRG’s core values are education, collaboration, innovation, transparency, community, and sustainability.  These core values drive the collaborative process to find, trial, and certify the best new plants as Handpicked for You® certified.
