Berns Greenhouse and Garden Centers were founded in January 1956, when Al and Cherie Berns purchased one greenhouse and a home on one acre of land on Yankee Road in Middletown, Ohio.


In the beginning, the business was only open to the public eight weeks a year in the spring. Today the business operates 360 days a year and employs 50 to 125 employees seasonally. The Berns Corporation has four divisions:

• Berns Landscaping

• Personal Gardener

• Berns Production Greenhouses. 

• Berns Garden Centers

For three generations, the Berns family has worked with gardeners in our area to provide the best quality plants for our region. From our carefully tended local greenhouses, to plant collections we sell for their hardiness and performance, to landscaping services based on in-depth knowledge of local conditions, we stand by our roots in the communities we serve. At Berns, you’re not just a customer, you’re part of the family.
