We founded Joy Creek Nursery in 1992 after years of being frustrated by our inability to find the plants we wanted and reliable information about them at our local nurseries.

What started out as a mail-order nursery soon grew to include both retail sales and garden design and installation.

Our nursery is located 18 miles north of Portland, Oregon, on a ridge overlooking the Joy Creek canyon and the confluence of the Columbia and Willamette Rivers. The nursery proper occupies about seven acres of a forty-acre farm. Four-and-a-half acres are devoted to gardens and stock fields, and three acres to growing space.

If you are a landscape client and wish to visit the gardens, please call 2-3 days in advance to make arrangements.
