A Little History

Living Gardens began in 1988 as Marlborough Greenhouses, a retail garden center. At the time, we were limited by the population in small town New England, so we charted a new path to provide potted bulbs directly to customers across the country. Supplying large catalog and Internet companies for over 25 years has been an education in product diversity, as customers consistently appreciate new products.


Living Gardens Today

It takes many hands to create our bulb gardens, process orders and ship our products to you. Meet the folks that make it all happen: our team on the front steps of our Marlborough, NH headquarters. As the holidays approach, we hire many more colleagues to ship our packages than would fit on these steps.


Into the Future

Our ecommerce store and product lines align with our mission of bringing more natural beauty to our world. Living Gardens is committed to supporting and promoting family bulb farms across the globe in order to preserve their independence for future generations.

We continually seek more environmentally-sensitive ways to conduct our business. We have replaced the use of polystyrene packing “peanuts” with 100% post-consumer packing materials. We will continue to reject paper catalogs that consume trees and fossil fuel while producing carbon emissions that degrade our planet


What’s in a Name?

The name Living Gardens evolved as the perfect description of our product. Our bulb gardens arrive to you in a dormant state, ready to spring to life. Customers tell us our bulb gardens are the perfect floral gift choice; flowers that awaken versus the typical ‘watch it expire’ floral arrangement.
