Gardener’s Supply Company is in business to spread the joys and rewards of gardening, because “gardening nourishes the body, elevates the spirit, builds community, and makes the world a better place.”

Gardeners Supply Company was founded in 1983 as a catalog mail order company, and in 2009 became 100% employee owned. They encourage every employee to "think and act like an owner," because they are!

To them, being co-owners really means that they "care deeply about their customers, sustain a vibrant focus on gardening, support a strong social mission, take care of our communities and one another, and work hard to safeguard the increasingly fragile planet we've been entrusted with." 

Gardeners Supply Company was named “Company of the Year” in 2018 by the ESOP Association.
