Our Story

Chelsea Garden Center opened for business in 1984 on a rubble-strewn 2,700 square-foot corner of industrial Chelsea, Manhattan, with just a garden umbrella, a cash box, a tiny cedar potting shed and a spare lot brimming with plants specially selected for urban and city gardens. 

Our two locations in Williamsburg & Red Hook have come a long way from those early days. Since then, we've been delighting our customers every year with a wide inventory of unique Houseplants, Perennials, Annuals, Trees, Shrubs, Garden Supplies, Pottery & more. Now, a select range of our indoor Houseplants & Supplies — the best of the best — can now be ordered online for delivery, just like your pizza.
