We have an unparalleled range of product for all four seasons.

Spring: cool hardy annuals like ranunculus and stock, forced bulbs, and fresh branches.

Summer: high impact annuals ranging from 4.5” to 10” pots, tropicals, foliage, and unique signature items.

Fall: pansies, mums, ornamental cabbage and kale, peppers, decorative branches and accents.

Winter: a one-stop-shop of everything from greens, berries, wreaths and garlands to decorative accents and poinsettias.

  • “It’s nice to have a rapport with your account manager, and mine has been great to deal with. He is always thinking about my needs, calling me and suggesting things: “I saw this item come in and thought of you.” Relationship is key.

    When I need product at the last minute my account manager always makes it happen. Clesen has good reaction time.

    Selection is excellent; winter, spring, fall and summer you cover all the bases. I am pleased with the quality and selection. Clesen has good quality control.”

  • “My account manager has an interest in me and my business being as successful as possible. He is more of a partner than a vendor … he takes good care of me.

    Once my account manager even drove out himself, in a van, and personally delivered the material I needed. He went above and beyond expectations.

    My account manager always lets me know the status of my products, sends photos and keeps me abreast on how the product looks.”

  • "My Account Manager is in constant communication with me and is always figuring out how to get me my product when I need it most. I have a great relationship with her, and that allows me to succeed at my job. Something that Clesen has that most other vendors do not have is great record-keeping. You keep track of what I order from year-to-year and provide me with a report of last year's order to help me place this year's order."

    "Our customers have high expectations of us, so we have high expectations of our vendors, and Clesen always meets and exceeds those expectations and makes my job easy."
