ALPINE GARDEN AND GIFTS was started in November 2013 by Mario and Kathy Matranga. Former longtime owners of a Gaslamp Nightclub called PATRICK'S II , Mario and Kathy have been entrepreneurs for most of their lives. Kathy has also been in the floral industry for over 30 years. In 2009 she established A CUT ABOVE FLORIST, specializing in a variety of services. The business continues to thrive and blending a Florist into a Nursery has been a natural fit. At ALPINE GARDEN AND GIFTS you can now enjoy everything listed on the home page as well as tapping into Kathy's other talents at A CUT ABOVE FLORIST, including Wedding consultations, holiday home decorating, and personalized custom flower arrangements.
