Horticultural Consulting Services


For the past 15 years, I’ve had the pleasure of being self-employed as a perennial consultant. In this role, I travelled the country and worked internationally helping growers improve their perennial programs. 

Working as a perennial consultant has been very fulfilling; however, I’ve decided to pursue an excellent opportunity and begin the next chapter of my horticultural career. Therefore, I will no longer be working as an independent horticultural consultant.

I’m taking on the role of Technical Manager for one of our industries leading providers of biological and traditional chemistry pest solutions products, OHP, Inc. In this position, I’ll continue to pursue my interest in performing research, working through industry challenges and distributing information to the horticultural trades. As a result, I will no longer be able to offer consulting services to you.

I will officially start working for OHP, Inc. on November 30, 2020. 

As hard as the decision to leave my successful consulting business behind may seem, the choice was somewhat easier than I thought. Being an industry leader, OHP has the resources to pursue research and projects I could never attempt on my own, they are committed to developing products growers need, employs a team of passionate and experienced people and will allow me to continue my professional development.

I’m extremely grateful for the friendships I’ve made, the support the industry has given me over the years, and the trust numerous businesses have bestowed upon me. For this reason, I can’t tell you how hard it is for me to break this news to you. But, I’m truly grateful for the opportunities I’ve had to help you with your projects and/or perennial programs. 

As good as my career has been so far, I truly believe by joining OHP, the best years are ahead. Although I will no longer be a consultant, I’m excited to begin the next chapter of my horticultural career.

Thank you for your past business and continued support.

Best regards,

Paul Pilon

My NEW email is

There are numerous articles that will remain available to you for the time being. Please enjoy them while you can. I'll also continue to sell my book "Perennial Solutions" while books are still available. 



The Definitive Perennial Reference The new book by Paul Pilon, Perennial Solutions, is a must-have reference if you are involved in the production of containerized perennials. He has compiled a comprehensive set of production methods for most perennial species in commercial production including scheduling, forcing, and height control. We all know production methods vary from one area of the country to another (as they should), but having a good reference for a starting point is very important. We have a copy at each of our locations here in Texas and have enjoyed having Paul consult with us. -Mark Clemmons, Seville Farms Inc.
