Pictures are placeholders, not pictures that are going to be used

Established over 30 years ago,

the Garden Spot Nursery has been a Bellingham, staple and a gathering place for friends and gardeners. Paige Lanham bought the Garden Spot Nursery in January 2021 from her longtime friend, mentor, and boss Marcy Plattner. "There is no place like this on the planet," Paige says, "The people who work here are brilliant, eccentric, and so much fun to be around. We really are a crazy gardening family."

Paige grew up in Washington and moved to Bellingham to attend Western Washington University, where she double majored in Biology and English. She began her journey with the Garden Spot in Spring of 2012. Paige walked in looking for a job to help her get through college, something flexible where she could work outside and learn about plants, and quickly fell in love with the work, the people, and the science of gardening. 

Paige started as a cashier and knew very little about plants. After a few years, she became the plant receiver and worked behind the scenes processing orders. In more recent years, she has worked the sales floor, helping gardeners and playing with plants.

In addition to being a gardener, Paige is also a Liscensed Veterinary Technician.
