The idea for Gardener’s Supply began germinating in 1982. Back then, it was difficult for organic gardeners to find the tools and supplies they needed for the way they gardened. Will Raap, an avid organic gardener himself, saw an opportunity to fill this gap. From spending time in Europe, he knew that gardeners there could choose from a wide range of quality gardening tools and supplies. So he began importing these items and offering them for sale through the mail. The idea was an instant success.

In 1983, Will and eight others founded a company, which they named Gardener’s Supply. From the start, this Vermont-based, employee-owned business was lead by avid gardeners, eager to find quality tools and earth-friendly gardening supplies that they could use in their own gardens, and share with friends and customers. This gardener-to-gardener partnership is at the heart of our business.

In addition to importing tools and other gardening sundries from Europe, Gardener’s Supply also established its own research and development capabilities. Products from commercial agriculture were adapted for home use, and staff developed new products that addressed specific gardening challenges. This focus on product development plays a key part in our continuing success.
