10 Best Seattle Nurseries

  • 9701 15th Ave NW, Seattle • Crown Hill
    Adam Doppelt - My family loves Swansons and we go there several times a year. They put on a great show for the kids. Before Halloween we bring the kids for the little hay maze. During the holidays we visit for Curly the camel, the reindeer, Santa, and the train set. It has a special place in our family history due to all the photos we've taken. Fun!
    Laura - Fantastic professionals. I've come here with sad little plant leaves trying to diagnose what the heck is going on with my plants. The team is super helpful at figuring out the problem and giving me reasonable solutions. Don't forget their #askswanson Twitter hashtag so you can ask questions via Twitter.
    Adam MacBeth - Hands down the best quality plants in Seattle. Very pleasant shopping experience. Appropriately priced!
  • 18528 Aurora Ave N, Shoreline
    Steve Dossick - Just a great place to buy beautiful things for your garden, and super knowledgeable staff to answer questions about the plants and keeping them happy.
    Amy Pennington - Good for anyone on the north end. I find their delivered bulk products to be expensive, but if you're in a pinch, they are a good option. The store also has supplies for ponds/fountains if you have any built into your landscape.
    Lawrence Lerner - My favorite place to feed my addiction to buy indoor, outdoor plants, and garden decorating. They have a great plant AND specialty soil select. Soil bags come in multiple sizes for big and small projects.

    When you can chase someone down, I find them more helpful than some of the other local nurseries.

    Lawrence Lerner - Good selection, knowledgeable and available staff. Good seasonal classes.
    Annette Kraus - This is my favorite shop and nursery in the city of Seattle. I have been coming to this store for all my garden and gifts for 27 years. The staff is friendly, knowledgable and I always come away a happy, informed customer about any or all my gardening needs. The gift shop buyer knows what is on-trend and keeps an eclectic array of home decor and accessories to please most anyone. It is truly a gem!!

    Brooklyn Benjestorf - Beautiful houseplants and super helpful staff.
    Flora Ku - Super cute little plant shop. It's a bit on the pricier side, but I love to just roam and take pictures. It's close to my apartment and a great option if you don't have a car to get to other cheaper nurseries when you want a plant pick-me-up!
    Valerie Madison - Our absolute favorite spot for picking up beautiful and interesting plants.
  • 13625 NE 175th St, Woodinville

    Tom Laramee - I've now done two bamboo installations and Stan helped me hook up some really beautiful bamboo, along with the requisite root barriers. (The nursery is also a great place to play hide and seek if you have young children).

Liz Pearce @Lawrence Are you looking for the kind of Yule log you eat or burn? :) If it's the former, the one from Bakery Nouveau is delicious.
Lawrence Lerner lol. I should be clear. This is for burning. As a good Pagan, I celebrate Yule by burning away the cares of the past year.
Liz Pearce Thanks for clarifying :) have never done this myself but seems like a good tradition!

Meredith Fife My mom has her hanging baskets stored at a nursery during the winter months. Have you considered trying some of the local nurseries to see if they do this? It might be helpful.
Amy Pennington Maybe ask the building who does the planters? Or a neighboring building? Those landscape services may have a service plan. Depending on the plant type, you may also only need someone every 3-4 weeks so it shouldn't be too pricey. A neighbor?? GOOD LUCK!
Flora Ku I'm by no means a professional but I am a fellow plant enthusiast. I could possibly help out if you run out of options :) LMK!

Does anyone know if Honeycrisp and Fuji apple trees will pollenate each other?

Marston Gould That’s great. Honey bees and bumbles typically won’t pollinate trees. Mason and American bees will. Masons are usually spring bees. So most are already moving back into hibernation. Remember to give them both a water and mud source.
Susan Stocker They do pollinate each other. Some growers recommending planting a Crab Apple tree in between apple trees as bees love them and it helps pollination all around. Here's a cool link that you can check for all sorts of information on fruit trees
Ryan Bruss Thank you @susanstocker!!! That's a super helpful resource.
