Our Story

Our Story

Founded in 1966 by Jim & Ruth Youngsman, Skagit Gardens has a long-standing history of producing beautiful annuals and hardy perennials. 

We have come a long way from the original 20′ x 150′ greenhouse Jim & Ruth first built in 1967 as we now have access to over 300 acres of growing space.

Today, Skagit Gardens serves as the Retail-Ready division for Skagit Horticulture, providing wholesale plants and flowers to independent garden centers, small-chain retailers, landscapers, & municipalities throughout the United States and Canada.


A Family of Brands

Under the banner of Skagit Horticulture, our company serves several distinct markets, operating our divisions as a family of brands:

We operate greenhouses, container yards, and open field production centers in both Washington and California. These unique climates offer optimum environments to propagate and grow plants where they perform best. Whether you need annuals, perennials, grasses, ground covers, or roses, Skagit Horticulture has you covered from start to finish!
