Our Philosophy




Best-in-class brands with a track record of high performance. Our comprehensive portfolio meets the needs of growers of all sizes – from home growers to commercial partners.



Through our signature brands, we’ve blazed trails since 1976, and we continue to bring forward industry-leading, trusted brands. We’re also tapped into the rich horticulture legacy of our parent company, Scotts Miracle-Gro.



We make bold investments in the future of the industry – more so than any other distributor in the business. We’re building the world’s first and largest purpose-built research and development facility dedicated to cannabis cultivation in Kelowna, British Columbia. The 50,000-square-foot facility will optimize the entire Hawthorne product portfolio – from lighting to nutrients.


Technical Services

We provide growers extensive services and a wide range of consulting capabilities.



In North America, we stock over 6,000 SKUs across 11 distribution centers, typically carrying over $80M of in-stock inventory.



On the cutting edge of innovation in the hydroponics space to help build the industry of tomorrow.
