Best Plant Nursery

East Bay Nursery

Centrally located in West Berkeley, this neighborhood staple chose its name right: It’s in many ways the quintessential East Bay nursery. It’s got edibles for the ever-growing ranks of backyard farmers. It’s got California natives and drought-tolerant varieties for water-wise, bay-friendly landscaping. It’s got groundcovers and succulents and grasses for all applications. It’s got trees and shrubs in every shape, size, and color. And what the East Bay Nursery lacks in depth for some specialty plants like bamboo and cacti, it enthusiastically makes up for in sheer, nearly overwhelming, breadth: an admission-free botanical garden, really. Simply browsing is wholly satisfying. When it comes time to shop, to find the perfect shade fern or flowering native or basil six-pack, a knowledgeable staffer is rarely far away. If you end up paying a bit more here than you would at a big-box store, it’s for better, happier plants and expert service: worth it every time.
