Our Story

Malmborg’s Garden Center, established in 1958, was purchased by George Lucht in 1972 after he had worked for the Malmborg’s family for many years. Malmborg's Garden Center had earned an excellent reputation in the community and George decided to keep the name "Malmborg's" and add "Geraniums by George" as his own personal touch. George expanded the business in 1976 when he purchased the current growing range in Rogers, MN and developed greenhouses and a retail store on the site. 


Malmborg's is truly a family owned and operated business. Today George (CEO) and his son Troy (President) own the company. George's daughter Keri handles many varied aspects of the business including inventory, planning and customer service. Van Cooley, George's son-in-law, leads the sales and marketing drive in retail and fundraising. George's grandchildren are learning more about the business as they spend available time working in the greenhouse and retail stores.

Malmborg's opened an additional garden center location in April of 2012. Located in Blaine, this spacious garden center has allowed Malmborg's to bring our large selection of annuals, vegetable, herbs and more to the North Metro. We look forward to serving the avid gardeners in the Blaine area and helping them to continue to beautify their homes and gardens.

In July of 2015, Malmborg's closed the Brooklyn Center garden center and greenhouse to make way for New Millennium Academy, a local charter school. While we are saddened to leave this community after 57 years, we are excited for the future of our Blaine and Rogers garden centers and greenhouse.
