OUR PASSION AND STORY
Vedic Gardens And Nursery was founded by Anil Gandhi in 2001. It developed into two divisions: Landscaping and nursery; both leaders in the NC Triangle area. In 2015 Anil teamed up with David O’Mahony to launch the nursery division online in mid 2016 as well as retaining a traditional outlet in the Cary/Morrisville area. Vedic Gardens is now the USA’s leading supplier of South Asian plants – from Mango trees to Neem, from Belle of India to Tulsi, the diverse range is literally unmatched. The awesome thing about being on-line is that the joy of growing niche plants can now be shared everywhere from New Jersey to Mississippi!

Note: We use the term “South Asian” to include not just India, but Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Pakistan too.

MEET OUR TEAM
Manager of On-Line Sales
David moved from Malaysia where he grew everything from curry trees to guavas. But that is not where his passion for plants started. He previously lived in the south of France where he grew an amazing range of plants from walnut trees to apricots trees. In his early years as a child he learned how to grow the simplest of plants on a small family farm in the wild west coast of Ireland. Those were the formative years that gave him the passion of planting and growing. Hence our slogan: “share the joy…..plant something”.
Amanda is a true North Carolinian …. and her enthusiasm for outdoors and plants is contagious! She has played a key role in making Vedic Gardens one of the best known nurseries in North Carolina. Amanda’s practical knowledge of what will grow, and how to help it grow in North Carolina is unequaled!
Anil moved from Mumbai, India to North Carolina in 1989 to work in the telecom industry. After 12 years, Anil “broke free” from the big corporate world and followed his passion: plants and landscaping. What started as a side hobby turned into a full business in 2001. With the support of his friends and family, Anil created the USA’s largest supplier of Indian plants – from Tumeric to Parijat!
