At Hudson Plant tissue culture we take pride in our work and look to develop honest business relationships with our clients. We treat customers who have partnered with us for contract propagation services as an extension of our own company. Our mission is to grow plants that help feed, ornament landscapes and minimize over collection of endangered species.
