Frank Gerten began Gertens with a vision of quality garden goods and the motto “Buy from the Grower.” Starting as a small truck farm selling produce, Gertens quickly grew, and Frank handed his company over to his two sons, Bob and Jerry.

Over the years, Gertens has continued to be passed down through generations and completed an expansion project in 1996 to increase its retail store. It offers the widest selection of annuals, perennials, and nursery stock in the Twin Cities.
