About Us - And Our Mission

Our Mission

MAKING IT FUN TO MAKE THINGS GROW

The Plant Kingdom is a locally owned and operated retail garden center and consulting service in Louisville, Kentucky. Our mission is to provide our customers with the highest quality plants available and share our knowledge and experience as Horticulturists and consultants. We echo the message “right plant, right place” in order to help you make informed decisions when purchasing new plants and caring for existing ones.

We recognize that green spaces, whether large or small, indoors or outside, are integral living components of our shared urban ecology. We are committed to total plant health care through thoughtful placement, minimal maintenance, and environmental responsibility.

From the tiniest cactus to the tallest Oak tree, from the toughest native plants to the rare exotics, you’ll find the perfect plant from our exceptional variety of trees, shrubs, perennials, houseplants, annual flowers, vegetable crops, herbs, and more including seasonal items like pumpkins and Christmas trees. We're open year-round, so come in, meet our amazing team, and see our evolving living inventory firsthand.
