Our Griggs family of nurseries has been a part of the community for over 30 years and we know that every garden or landscape has its challenges: clay soil, hungry deer, low water, and changing light, just to name a few. Our staff is always happy to listen to your needs and make recommendations based on your unique situation.

Your success is our ultimate goal!

Locally Grown, Locally Owned

Our mission is to carry only the highest quality plants and pottery. We personally select and grow a majority of our plants to ensure what you see is up to our standards.

We want you to be successful in your gardening project and will help you along the way no matter what your gardening experience is. We will offer you expert advice based on our years of education and planting experience.

Ken Griggs, along with his wife Catherine and two young children, has owned Griggs Nursery for 12 years. He is the second generation of the Griggs family of nurseries which have been on the Monterey Peninsula for nearly 40 years.


 We are in for some spectacular summer days here on the Monterey Peninsula and nothing loves this weather more than lavender! We have a wide variety of lavender at the nursery and they’re all just budding up, ready to be planted. Consider planting them alongside Alstroemerias (Peruvian lilies) for beauty and ease. Add Penisetum seatceum (fountain grass) for a quintessential California look. Cue a soft summer breeze and you’ll never want to leave your yard!  Dragon fruit- from today's goodies (aka houseplants) delivery :)  These finished remind me of the lost city of Atlantis   Mother's day weekend brings so much love into the nursery. Kids of all ages come in looking for something for Mom. Some get a flowering plant or arrangement and some work really hard to put something together on their own. Today I got to help with an air plant wreath, an herb garden and a flower cutting garden. Tomorrow people will be bringing their mothers in and taking the time to leisurely walk and talk through the whole nursery. #bestweekend #mothersdayeveryday #callyourmom #shoplocal #takethetime #griggsnursery  Thank you Carmel Valley Garden Show!! We loved making our newest stepping stone.  Ladybugs tickle!  Our can-do kid  Every other month or so Ken and I hit the road before dawn and go on a plant shopping spree in San Francisco. We high five a lot and shout "CHECK THIS OUT!" across greenhouse tables. We always buy way too much and come home super excited to unpack all of our goodies at the store. Today was one of those most awesome of days. . I'll keep posting my favorites. Hope you all enjoy!!!  Pilea peperomoides. They are all over Instagram and I finally got my hands on a few!! Heading to the nursery now...
 You will get a summer’s worth of enjoyment from these beautiful dahlias, but hurry! They will only be in the nursery for a short time. Come in soon for the best selection because before you know it, they’ll be gone!  What a game! GO GIANTS!!  For the home brewers!  I've got the plants, now I need to pick a pot...  A color for every mood...  26 pallets arriving next week...  Where Jack and the Beanstalk began...  Seriously don't think I've ever seen more buds and blooms on a single azalea in my life.
