Barn Nursery — Exceptional, One-Stop Garden Center

Stop in to smell the roses or sniff the snowdrift clematis when you visit The Barn Nursery. This family-owned business cares for your gardening spirit. You’ll find healthy plants of all sorts, as well as what you’ll need to keep them that way. With a focus on customer service, the Barn team helps people find what they are looking for.

The experienced staff is ready to assist you on your next gardening steps. For gardeners who like to start at the beginning, there’s the Seed Center. The selection is thrilling. Perhaps you would rather have plant starts to get your garden rolling. Additionally, there are fruit trees, shrubs, and ground covers. Enjoy a selection of annuals, perennials, native plants, ornamental grasses, and ones specifically for your pond.

Hearty yard workers can shop for tools, organic fertilizers, soil amendments, and can pick up mason bee houses. Find answers to your pest problems. You’ll have fun looking around at The Barn Nursery.

When you are ready to add something special to your existing outdoor spaces, take a walk among the fountains, birdbaths, and statuary. Maybe you’re dreaming of a trellis heavy with wisteria. You’ll be inspired by the sound of wind chimes. Whether your project is small
or large, The Barn Nursery wants you to have success.

Indoor plants abound too. Take the time to explore the various showrooms. In addition to the greenery, you can see and touch scarves, selected clothing, cards, and jewelry. Find honey, body care products, and candles. Check out the home décor including door mats and dishes. There’s even a Kid Zone with toys and games.

Chris Watkins, the nursery supervisor and self-described plant geek, has worked at The Barn for nearly 30 years. “Gardeners are interesting people,” she muses. Watkins enjoys talking with those who are new to getting their hands in the dirt to those who also have decades of
experience. “The nursery has little changes all the time,” she adds. With seasonal offerings, you are invited to come by more often to see what’s new.

The Barn Nursery is a slice of paradise. It’s an excellent place to find a special gift too. If you can’t quite decide, a gift certificate will work instead. “Come to find a little peace and solace,” invites Watkins.

The Barn Nursery is located just south of the Olympia airport on Old Highway 99.
