Knapp Nursery was created in 1985 by plant entrepreneur Doug Knapp.
Over the years he developed a reputation for being a high quality, high volume, plant grower.
Patrick and Sandy Caswell purchased the nursery in 1990 from Doug and have since expanded the operation while continuing to uphold the tradition established by Doug Knapp.
Knapp Nursery is a 5 acre, landscaping retail nursery and growing facility open to the public.
Knapp Nursery currently grows approximately 1,000 varieties of plants and is by far the most diverse nursery of its kind that is open to the public in Santa Barbara County.
We're known for great prices on high quality landscape plants.
In addition, we carry Kellogg, Gardner & Bloome, Gardeners and Nature's brands of soil mixes. We have just about everything you'll need at the best prices.
