Lynde Greenhouse & Nursery History

Lynde Greenhouse & Nursery has been owned and operated by five generations of the Lynde family. The Lynde family first started producing plants in Golden Valley before 1900. After WWI, they found a niche in growing and selling flowers. In 1971, the family moved to their current location in Maple Grove. In 1982 they opened their retail Garden Center.

Today, we produce plants for our retail garden center, landscape installations, commercial installations, wholesale, and our fundraising program.

We have an amazing staff full of experience, expertise, and passion.
