Gertens has a history of excellence that began as a small truck farm in the early 1900’s. Their early vision of “buy from the grower” remains true today in the fourth generation of dedicated staff. Gertens passion is to provide our retail and commercial customers with the best plants, products, service and pricing. Gertens employees over 650 employees during our peak spring season. With the widest selection of annuals, perennials and nursery stock in the Twin Cities, Gertens is one of only a handful of garden centers that grows the majority of the goods sold. Along with plants Gertens also carries a full line of hardscapes, lawn and garden products, backyard birding seed and supplies, and backyard grill and outdoor living furniture and décor. At Gertens we celebrate all five season of the year; spring, summer, fall, winter and Christmas. All of this makes the yearlong, entire shopping experience unlike any other.
