San Diego Nursery

our original nursery

Walter Andersen Nursery's San Diego store is the headquarters of Walter Andersen Nurseries. Walter Jr. and many other family members still call this store home. Opened in 1969 after moving from our location on Rosecrans, the San Diego store is full of history and many wonderful products and people!

I still remember moving into the store. I was 6 years old when the move was completed. Heck, I remember going through the empty building with my father and grandfather before we bought it! — Ken Andersen

More About San Diego

The building itself is rich in history. It was built in 1942 as the cafeteria for the Consolidated Vultee Aircraft Plant (Convair) which was located across the street (now the Navy's High Tech SPAWAR facility). After the war, the property changed hands several times. The building was the first office and studio of the fledgling KOGO Television, now KGTV channel 10. My family bought the building from a company that sold a bunch of weird stuff (at least I thought it was weird when I was 5 and 6). That company was Pier One Imports and the building was home to their first store.

For the past 30 years the building has seen Walter Andersen Nursery grow many fold. Still keeping to the high standards of customer service, quality, and selection that Walter Andersen Sr. started with in 1928. Walter Andersen Nursery has the greatest selection of plant material in San Diego. Our special order service can find most plants if we don't have it in stock. Fertilizers, books, chemicals, statuary and gifts are just a few of the items that round out our inventory at the San Diego store.
