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.


 Need a reason to escape the fog on the coast? It’s sunny at the nursery! Stop by to soak up some sun and pick up some goodies for your home or yard ☀️  No Monday blues here!  Eeny, meeny, miney, moe   Happy 4th of July 🇺🇸🇺🇸 It’s a great week for some planting! We’re open until 6pm weekdays and 5pm on weekends for the rest of the summer.  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!
