The Altum’s Story

The first thing we can say about our story is that it is always growing and changing. We’re sure Bob Altum would be proud that more than 65 years after his first tree, and all the beautiful landscapes that followed, his family business is still built on yards, gardens and relationships that grow better with time.

Bob’s vision in 1958 was to lean into the local mentality and invest in relationships with the best local growers. These are people we know on a first-name basis because Bob earned the trust and business of generations. That’s still one of the most important aspects of our business and what makes it possible to get the freshest, hardiest plants that do well in our Central Indiana soil.

Two new generations of Altums, Dana and her son Kirk, plus the same group of Altum’s experts you’ve come to know and trust, are reinventing the traditional garden center once again. After years of working on the right location, it became clear we had found it online and in your yard and garden. We are now the garden center that delivers. We are bringing everything to you. 

The Garden Center that Delivers

Shop online or by phone, ask questions any time and expect everything you’ve always loved from Altum’s, including fresh, premium-quality plants, trusted products and personal design and planting services. We’ll bring it all to your door.

We cherish the long-term relationships we’ve built over the past 65 years, and we’re focusing on all of the amazing new ways we can serve you. Call us, email us or have us come to you for an Onsite Yard & Garden Consult.
