Quality through Personal Commitment and State of the Art Facilities: First Step’s investment in people and facilities enables them to deliver consistent quality throughout the year. Our environmental computer maintains 9 different growing zones, while dutch benches enable us to quickly move plants to any of these zones. This creates the ability to fine tune growth and cater to the plants’ needs. While having a nice greenhouse is part of the equation, committed people is of equal or greater importance. They continually strive to improve crops and processes to provide our customers with a better buying experience and higher quality plants; whether it’s acknowledgments by email, easier to read invoices or a contents label on each box.
Location, Location, Location: True for real estate and even truer for growing quality plugs and liners. Temecula, located in southern California, is positioned between the cool coastal climates to the west and desert regions eastward. Cool night temperatures and warm sunny days provide optimum temperatures and light levels for your transplants. With more light accumulated in a plant you will see higher energy reserves and faster flowering. In addition we supply long day lighting throughout the short days to significantly decrease flowering times.
