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.
