Serving Whatcom County Gardeners Since 1938

In 1938, James Vander Giessen opened his first greenhouse to the public in his backyard on the edge of Lynden. 80 years later, much has changed, but one thing remains the same: our commitment to selling the best plants we can offer. Now in our third and fourth generations of family ownership, Vander Giessen’s is Whatcom County’s oldest nursery and garden center.
