About

Brooklyn Plantology by Lapide

The area’s largest selection of retail and wholesale garden supplies family operated for 65 years in the historic Brooklyn Terminal Market.

The year was 1946 – the New York Knicks played their first game at Madison Square Garden and President Harry S. Truman proclaimed the end of World War II. New York City was lifted out of the Depression and ushered in an era of unparalleled prosperity.

1946 was also the year that two Brooklyn Italian-American brothers ignited their American dream by opening a small produce store, F&L Produce in Canarsie. That dream flourished into a large scale wholesale and retail home & garden center, which quickly became a staple in the neighborhood as well as the go-to garden center for much of New York City.

Sixty-five years and four generations later, this family owned and operated business now known as Brooklyn Plantology by Lapide is still thriving in the same neighborhood where the original F & L Produce opened all those years ago.

Like our family, many of our customers have “grown up” in our store and have been shopping with us for generations. Brooklyn Plantology caters to decorators, landscapers, designers, florists, event planners and to the public at the historic Brooklyn Terminal Market.

It’s our mission to get New York’s hands dirty by offering the best quality home and garden products for the most reasonable price. We offer seasonal classes, event space, workshops, garden design and drafting services as well organic and conventional products and materials. We deliver too!

We’re excited to contribute to Grow To Learn NYC, The Community Garden Alliance and many NYC schools because we believe in supporting New York City schools’ future generations of gardeners.
