Beds & Borders Inc. is a wholesale nursery on the North Fork of Long Island. It was founded in 1987 by the late Kathryn Pufahl. Since then Beds and Borders has grown from a single hoop house operation to a 15-acre state of the art facility.

From inception, we succeeded in building our business on making unusual and underused annuals accessible. Through Kathy’s work with container gardening, she helped launch these annuals onto a national platform; where they’ve since gained much popularity.

We continue to provide a diverse and evolving plant list. Our knowledgeable and experienced staff are committed to providing the highest level of quality. From our professionally designed combinations to the health of every individual plant we tirelessly strive to create a truly handcrafted product.

The focus has always been promoting unusual plants and unique ways to utilize them.

We grow a diverse and ever-evolving list of annuals, perennials, tropical and house plants. Our selections are made up of proven garden performers and unusual varieties, all in a versatile pallet of blues, pastels, and rich jeweled tones.

We also offer an unmatched selection of artfully designed combination plantings. Our Seasonal Gift Items, Hanging Garden Collection and Container Collections are all professionally designed, trialed vigorously and thoughtfully branded

In loving memory of our founder Kathryn Pufahl, we donate all proceeds from the purchase of the plant Petunia integrifolia TNT to the ‘The Kathryn Pufahl Pediatric IBD Research Fund’ a cause that was near and dear to Kathy’s heart.

These genetically unique petunia seeds are collected, named, and exclusively sold at beds and borders.

All donations can be made to:
