Founders Egon and Laina Molbak, from Denmark brought their passion for gardening, and a dream of creating their own business to Woodinville. They have turned Molbak’s into one of the Northwest’s premier garden and home destinations on the Eastside.
Founded in 1956 Molbak’s has been the outdoor institution for Eastsiders for decades. You can immerse yourself in their stunning selection of fresh, vibrant plants, seasonal hanging baskets such as their popular oversized fuchsia, and geranium baskets, or their 100’s of gorgeous indoor orchids. If you’re like me and want the perfect basket, but not sure how to create that. Moblak’s has you covered! With their expert staff on hand they can offer advice to help you get inspired to create your best outdoor space or direct you to their large selection of pre-done pots and baskets.
Molbak’s is more than your outdoor garden center. You can stock up on the latest gardening gear, and patio furniture, including large umbrella’s, outdoor patio sets, and hammocks.
