A.M.A.’s core business is growing containers for growers across Canada and is one of Canada’s leading suppliers of plug trays & propagation trays.
Propagation is in our blood.
Allen started selling plug trays in the earliest days of A.M.A. and the experience shows when you call us about sowing plugs.
We carry a very large inventory of the most common plug trays and can usually get the less common ones pretty quickly. Some trays do require a lead time as they are not stock items with the manufacturers.
Speaking of manufacturers, we offer plug trays & propagation trays from Blackmore Company; Dillen; T.O. Plastics; East Jordan Plastics; ITML (on request); Punch ‘n Gro; IPL Plastics; Proptek and Stuewe. We have access to a few European tray manufacturers too.
Because we also sell seeding equipment, plus Ellepots, understanding the importance of cell design and configuration, plus the automation processes used by growers in transplanting, gives you an edge when you have us look after your tray needs.
We handle orders from less than a case to multiple truckloads and would be happy to help you with yours.
Don’t forget to ask about germination mixes and vermiculite.
In addition to Plug trays & Propagation Trays, we are a distributor of great products from:
Blackmore; FloraPlast; Koba; Meyers Lawn & Garden (Dillen, Listo, Akro Mills); T.O. Plastics; East Jordan Plastics; Clifton Plastics; DCN Plastics; VacForm; McConkey Company;Stuewe; Proptek; Anderson Die; Nursery Supplies; EPLA; Van Krimpen; Pride Garden Products; Austram; Western Pulp; H2O Labor Saver & Weekender Baskets; and we’re likely forgetting someone.

New Clip-On Hanger
New clip-on nylon hanger is a revolutionary product to the nursery industry. Until now, hanger installation was often a bottle-neck in the process of planting molded fiber hanging baskets. Our new hanger removes that bottle-neck, increasing installation speed by as much as 50 percent.
In the past, installers needed to go through a time-consuming process of separating hangers. The barbs used to attach hangers to baskets also tended to grab other hangers in the bag.
Now, workers need only remove hangers from the bag and grab one off the pile. A lengthy separation process is no longer needed before installation.
