Welcome to The Gardener Store

“There are three things that people who love the garden absolutely identify with – light, scent, texture. They are what I try to bring together in the store.” – Alta Tingle, Founder & Owner of The Gardener


A Berkeley, California landmark since 1984, The Gardener provides a curated collection of quality goods for the home and garden because even the most avid gardener lives indoors.  Our online store changes with the seasons and features unique groupings of our favorite, time-tested products.  And as always, our signature gift wrapping is complimentary.
