Our destination gift shop is full of interesting houseplants, as well as beautiful and unusual garden oriented gifts.

Knowledgeable nursery staff people are always on hand to help you find the perfect plant and help you take care of the plants you already have. We specialize in providing plant identification and pest/disease control suggestions and we consistently incorporate integrated pest management (i.p.m.) and environmentally friendly gardening principles in our approach. Nestled in this temperate, waterfront neighborhood, our nursery has been meeting West Seattle's gardening needs since 1983. We are proud to sponsor and support such worthy neighborhood endeavors as the West Seattle Garden Tour and local community outreach programs such as Southwest Youth and Family Services and the West Seattle Helpline. We also focus a charitable donation strategy around local public schools and publicly funded gardening education programs every year.

Whether you live in our neighborhood and stop by frequently or you are traveling from another part of Seattle, or beyond, we look forward to serving you. On any given day you are welcome at West Seattle Nursery to browse our selections, consult our staff and dream about the possibilities for your garden space. We’ll make it worth your trip!

Trees for Seattle

When this work begins, people will ask why trees are being removed from Lincoln Park. Here's the official explanation.

A note from our Parks Department on the trees at Lincoln Park: Lincoln Park tree maintenance work is scheduled to begin in mid-August and continue for several weeks. For public safety, we will prune 130 trees and remove 93 trees. We will install cables to help support 3 trees with significant defects (the alternative to cabling these trees would be to remove them).

Of the 93 trees to be removed, 31 are dead, 52 are in poor health, and 10 have relatively healthy upper canopies but decay in their root systems. All the trees scheduled for maintenance are near highly used features such as play areas, heavily used trails, or parking areas.

The trees have been assessed by Certified Arborists with Tree Risk Assessment Qualifications. Care will be taken to ensure that the park will be accessible during tree maintenance, although temporary detours may be necessary in some areas.

Some of the trees to be removed are affected by native root decay organisms. To verify the presence of these organisms and describe their effects, Parks brought Dr. Kevin Smith, a mycologist working for the US Forest Service, to Lincoln Park. In native forests, these fungi have an ecological function; they create openings in the canopy to enable young trees to grow, ensuring that there is variation in age and species. In parks, we must monitor the effects of these organisms and remove trees that are structurally compromised so that they do not cause damage become a risk to park users.

Migratory bird nesting season is over at the end of July according to wildlife experts consulted, so tree removal activities should not have a negative effect on bird populations. Hundreds of trees will be planted in Lincoln Park through forest restoration projects coordinated by the Green Seattle Partnership.

The goal of this work is to keep the park safe and accessible for users and to keep the urban forest healthy. Please contact Chris Rippey (chris.rippey@seattle.gov) or Deb Brown McGarry (deborah.brown@seattle.gov), or call Seattle Parks and Recreation Urban Forestry office at 206-386-1688.
