West Seattle Nursery is a full service nursery and garden center. We feature a large selection of unusual perennials, trees, shrubs and seasonal annuals for the urban landscape. We have a wide array of soil amendments, seeds, garden tools and supplies, books and an excellent selection of outdoor pottery and statuary. Container gardening is a specialty among several of our staff people and we are never without a supply of beautiful and interesting ready-made planters to suit every budget. 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!
