Our History

The Grow Room first opened its doors in January of 1996 with a small storefront in Nyack, New York, just 20 miles north of New York City.  The idea was to use our decades of growing experience to help customers avoid making mistakes we’d already learned from, to eliminate the beginner “trial and error” period of growing and guide both new and experienced growers to success.  That focus, combined with providing the right products that we KNOW work and standing behind the products that we sell, is what has driven our business for the last 23 years.  Since our opening, we’ve expanded our Nyack storefront and have an off-site warehouse for bulk orders.  In 2011 we opened our second location in Astoria / Long Island City, Queens.  


Who We Are and What We Do

From the outside, we are a gardening and hydroponics supply store.  We sell everything you need to build, run and supply outdoor and indoor gardens - from small home or apartment gardens to commercial greenhouses and farms.  However, we are not JUST a store.  We are consultants, designers, educators, even a gardening and plant help-line (no, really, call us).  We love to teach and we often work on educational projects with schools of all levels, from elementary schools to college universities.  There are many other professionals that we have worked closely with: chefs and restaurant owners, architects, movie and television set designers, environmental companies, artists, electricians, lighting specialists, construction companies, contractors and more.  If you need help with a project, please contact us or stop in to one of our two locations.
