A new perspective


PPS, the global network for nursery growers and professional horticulturists started in North America in the 1950s. There are regions in over eight geographically defined areas: Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Europe, Southern Africa and in the USA: the Eastern Region, Western Region and Southern Region.

The Southern Region became a region in 1975 of IPPS. The IPPS Southern Region of North America has over 200 members all around the southeastern United States. 

Membership consists of those working in many aspects of the nursery industry, researchers, academics, consultants and students all sharing plant production knowledge freely.

In the Southern Region our goal is to improve the knowledge, skills and professionalism of our members. IPPS members agree to freely "Seek and Share" their knowledge, skills and expertise for the benefit of our profession.

We do this through our annual conference, specialty workshops, visits to nurseries and other horticultural establishments, and, increasingly, through social media.
      Members have access to educational conferences, new plants, new propagation techniques, and the combined proceedings of all annual conferences since 1951.
