Al’s Garden & Home of Sherwood

Business Spotlight

Al’s Garden & Home of Sherwood, the company’s flagship location, is the unique combination of a first-rate gardening nursery and an upscale garden/gift shop. As one of the largest nurseries in the area, this 10.5 acre plot bursts with all manner of plants, trees, shrubs, soils, accessories, and tools needed for every gardening season of the year. With a state-of-the-art retractable roof that covers the garden center, customers can enjoy shopping rain or shine. Al’s Garden & Home—a recent name upgrade from Al’s Garden Center—reflects the variety Al’s has to offer. Featuring indoor home décor, gourmet foods, gift selections, and women’s apparel, in addition to outdoor patio furniture and fire pits, Jennifer Harmon, Marketing Director of all four Al’s Garden & Home locations confirms, “We’re not just a nursery!”

Open daily from 9am to 6pm, Al’s Garden & Home of Sherwood carries all the favorites. Some of the most popular customer selections include hanging baskets, planted containers, and Al’s signature heliotrope. The Sherwood location grows more than 80% of its inventory—they know the region and what thrives in it. And they go by past experience and they listen to their customers. “We want to continue to understand our customers’ needs and meet those needs,” says Jennifer.

Family-owned and operated, Al’s Garden & Home, a 3rd generation business, is currently preparing the 4th generation—Al’s great-grandchildren—to take over the family legacy which began as a fruit stand in 1948. Al and Ann Bigej converted a vacated chicken coop along Hwy. 99E in Woodburn to sell fruits and vegetables to the local residents and traveling tourists. A strong family culture continues to thrive, and many of the staff members have worked for the business for over 20 years. Maintaining strong ties with the local communities, Al’s Garden & Home extends in-kind donations annually, and hosts Kids Club quarterly events for children to learn more about agriculture, horticulture, and more.
