We’re Here to Help!

George & Liesl at Milwaukee’s German Fest.

W. & E. Radtke, Inc. is the culmination of more than 90 years of experience in the horticultural industry. We have been specializing in perennials since 1970, although the family business actually started in 1929 with roots going back to the mid 1800’s.

At W. & E. Radtke, Inc. our plants are NURSERY GROWN…GARDEN READY! We are dedicated to helping customers achieve gardening and landscaping success with the best genetics and a vast selection of plants.  Our plant line up offers more than 1,400 different varieties including perennials, grasses, ferns, herbs, and a small offering of vegetables and small fruits.  Perennials are offered under the Northern Sunset Perennials brand; native plants as NATIVE, Naturally!™; herbs with the Scarborough Faire name and vegetables and small fruits under the Grandpa Red’s logo.

Our dedication to customer service combined with our staff’s enthusiasm for plants and deep plant knowledge sets us apart.  We don’t have all the answers but collectively we can usually figure something out.  It’s ok to ask questions – we’re not just order takers.  The goal is to be a partner, not just a supplier!
