Our Greenhouse

Our original greenhouse, a Victorian beauty in San Rafael, California.


T
he Natural Gardening Company is located in Sonoma County, California, one of America's great agricultural counties. Cooled by the breezes of the Pacific Ocean, the surrounding hills provide pasture to sheep and dairy cattle, and ideal terrain for a flourishing, world-renowned wine industry. We are no more than 12 miles as the crow flies from the location where Luther Burbank, the famed plant breeder, conducted his horticultural research. In his words, Sonoma County was "the chosen spot of all this earth as far as Nature is concerned."

These favorable conditions were embraced and enhanced by the hard work and foresight of the people who lived here. Through their efforts they created one of the most celebrated food producing regions in the country. We, at the Natural Gardening Company, consider ourselves part of the larger agricultural community that preserves and protects these local traditions. Indeed, interest in good food and good health are not new ideas in this region, but ideas that are as old as the hills that surround our nursery.

Our goal is to provide you with the finest quality seeds and plants. We know your time is limited and results matter, so our product selection is aimed at quality, not quantity. We believe organically produced seeds and plants are better because they embody the best kind of stewardship of the land, that which promotes the long term health and preservation of our natural resources.

The Natural Gardening Company sets the highest standards in the organic seedling business. As the oldest certified organic nursery in the nation, we were instrumental in developing many of the guidelines by which other organic nurseries now operate. Our seedlings are handcrafted, and our knowledge of how they grow is both scientific and intuitive, the result of 26 years of experience. We are dedicated to our work. Nothing is more important to us in the winter and spring than to produce the best quality plants possible, and to deliver them to you on time.

To those who are new to us, thank you for taking time to become acquainted with our catalog and website. To those of you who return to us as customers year after year, we express our sincere appreciation.
