Beds & Borders Inc., is a wholesale nursery located on Long Island’s North Fork. The company was established in 1987 by Kathryn Pufahl with a mission to provide quality and innovative plant products built on trust and experience. The team at Beds & Borders offers a diverse and constantly evolving plant list and takes great care to ensure the highest quality of plants and customer service. 


The facilities in Laurel and Mattituck utilize greenhouses and hoop houses for plant propagation and advanced potting machines for transplanting. Our spring process includes adjusting temperatures, using rolling benches, and employing unheated greenhouse space to ensure plant hardiness. Additionally, the team waters, spaces, pinches, and deadheads all plants by hand, fostering a unique and intimate growing process. 


At Beds & Borders, we are committed to providing dependable and knowledgeable customer service. Our technology/enterprising tools give you the power to manage your accounts with speed and efficiency.

The Planting Hope Project was established in honor of our beloved founder, Kathryn Pufahl. 

Our mission is to donate 100% of the proceeds from the sale of one intentional plant to an organization that aligns with our values. In 2022 and 2023, we contributed the proceeds from Rudbeckia hirta Cherry Brandy to The Peconic Land Trust, Shinnecock Land Acquisition, and Stewardship Fund. We will continue this tradition in 2024. Rudbeckia hirta Cherry Brandy is native to the Eastern US, just like the Shinnecock Indian Nation, the indigenous people of the land. We stand in solidarity with them and their sovereignty. 

In the past, we have donated to:

The Kathryn Pufahl Pediatric IBD Research Fund

South Fork Bakery for Special Needs

The Northeast Farmers of Color Land Trust
