The Scotts Company, headquartered in Marysville, Ohio, was founded by Orlando Scott in 1968 as a seed supplier to the U.S. agricultural industry. In 1900, it started selling grass seed for homeowners, which consumers could purchase only by mail order. Twenty-four years later, it became the first company to begin shipping grass seed products directly to stores.
In 1995, the company merged with Miracle-Gro, which gave it an international reach. It was renamed the Scotts Miracle-Gro Company in 2005. In addition to Miracle-Gro, the company markets a number of other popular brands, including Ortho, Roundup, Evergreen and Substral. Scotts Miracle-Gro Company has several different regional offices and research facilities across the United States.
