About Us

Corso's has been in business since 1941. Originally a retail greenhouse, it now consists of seven acres of greenhouse, three acres of outdoor production, a retail Flower Shop, Garden Center, and Landscape Department.

In the mid 1980's Corso's began to grow Perennials for their own retail market and for a few wholesale accounts. As the demand for Perennials grow, so did production at Corso's.

Today, we supply garden centers throughout Ohio, Michigan, Western Pennsylvania, Indiana, northern Kentucky, and Buffalo, New York.

We believe our line of 4 1/2" pots, along with our 1 and 2 gallon size containers, Stepables®, and our Herbs, give us one of the most complete selections in the industry. Along with our selection comes a desire to provide you with the service needed to keep you supplied with top quality perennials and Herbs through Spring, Summer and Fall.

So feel free to stop by and visit - we're easy to find and we will be happy to show you around.

Corso’s Flower & Garden Center, Milan Road, Sandusky, Ohio is celebrating their 64th year of business and is pleased to announce an expansion to a second location.

Seventy acres of farmland on Bardshar Road in Castalia, Ohio will be used to increase wholesale production of perennials. The new facility will begin operation with a pole barn and six acres of outdoor growing area. Future expansions will include irrigation ponds, greenhouses and test gardens.

Corso’s Perennials is the wholesale division supplying perennials to a five state area. The company grows over four million plants per year for a variety of garden centers.

Corso’s has created its own brand of perennials called “Perennial Perfections®.” This brand is sold to other independent nurseries as well as on their Milan Road retail lot. Corso’s objective has been to nurture Perennial Perfections as the highest quality perennial produced. Several other national brands, including Herb Herbert Herbs™, Stepables®, and Proven Winners®, are also grown and supplied through Corso’s.

Third and fourth generation Corso family members currently manage the business along with a talented and committed staff. The company presently employs sixty people year round and 150 employees at peak times. The new facility will add four full time and eight seasonal positions the first year of operation.
