The Lynde Family Tree
Lynde Greenhouse & Nursery History
Lynde Greenhouse & Nursery has been owned and operated by five generations of the Lynde family. We first started producing plants in Golden Valley before 1900 and found a niche in growing and selling flowers after WWI. In 1971, we moved to our current location in Maple Grove, where we opened our retail Garden Center in 1982.
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.
Ed is the 4th generation owner of Lynde Greenhouse & Nursery. Ed attended the University of Minnesota School of Business where he received his degree in Business Administration. He has been in the greenhouse his whole life, and today is still actively involved in the business. He is passionate about the quality of his products, making his customers happy, and creating a great environment for his staff.
Derek is the 5th generation Lynde. He attended St. Cloud State University and serves as the General Manager. He oversees the non-administrative functions of the company including sales, operations, production, and installments. Derek was raised in the greenhouse and has always loved the variety of work. His plans have always included following in the family footsteps, and he hopes his little ones enjoy this industry as much as he, and his family before him have.
