  1. Our primary business is a retail nursery located on 1.6 acres about 45 miles north of Anchorage Alaska. We are located in the Matanuska Susitna Borough, halfway between the towns of Palmer and Wasilla. Our business grew out of our participation in garden club plants sales over many years. We grow most of our plants from seed or divisions from our own gardens. We offer a specialty selection of plants not found in the big box stores or mainstream nurseries. Much of our seed stock comes from seed exchanges, specialty seed catalogs and seed collection expeditions.

  2. The Alpine Garden Nursery is a sole proprietorship owned by Jaime Rodriguez, a long time member of:
    The Alaska Botanic Garden, The Alaska Rock Garden Society, The North American Rock Garden Society, The Valley Garden Club, The Willow Garden Club, and The Alaska Wildflower Society.

  3. Jaime is best known for his encyclopedic memory of the Latin names of plants. He also helped organize the Alaska Rock Garden Society expedition to China in 2000 with Dan Hinkley, and is also the author of the chapter titled “Rock Gardening in Alaska” in the North American Rock Garden Society book, Rock Garden Construction, published by Timber Press in 2003.
