Vancouver’s Favorite Garden Center

Shorty’s is a locally established garden center focusing on high-quality regionally grown plants, bulk soil and compost material, outdoor living, and specialty gift and decór products.

Shorty’s has a passionate, energetic, and creative group of experts dedicated to high standards of excellence and quality. We think we are a special place—made more so by the hard work and dedication of our employees. At Shorty’s, we want our service to set us apart. We value connecting with each customer and providing them with knowledge and inspiration. Along with our exceptional service, we strive to provide a selection of high-quality products.

Shorty’s meets the needs of consumers, professional landscapers, and plant enthusiasts in the Pacific Northwest. We love that we are able to source locally throughout the Willamette Valley—the best growers in the nation are right out our back door, allowing us to bring only the best to you. New items arrive frequently throughout each season, keeping our selection fresh and exciting.

At Shorty’s, we value our close relationship with the residents of Clark County. We believe that meeting neighbors and working toward common goals develops strong communities, and we’re proud to support non-profit organizations in our local area through partnering and fundraising events.

History of Dennis’ 7 Dees & Shorty’s Garden Center

The original Shorty’s Nursery was started by Ron Fournier, aka “Shorty”, at the former Ridgefield location in 1962 and sold a few trees, shrubs, and lots of bark dust. In 1988, Ron sold the business to Jeff Day, who expanded plant sales and added gardening products. The Vancouver location was originally Bishop’s Garden Center, opened in 1958. It mainly sold bark dust, along with a few plants. In 1996, Ed & Betty Mahoney and Brian & Ines Mahoney joined Jeff Day to purchase Bishop’s, thus making it Shorty’s. With two locations at this point, Shorty’s modernized the stores, improved their product selection, and changed the name to Shorty’s Garden & Home.

Finally, in December of 2016, Dennis’ 7 Dees purchased Shorty’s under the new name Shorty’s Garden Center. The Ridgefield location was closed in 2020, but the Vancouver location remains a staple in the passionate gardening community of Clark County, WA.
