Welcome to our website – a convenient place
to find information and advice on British Columbia gardening, even in middle of
a wet and wonderful West Coast winter! Our staff gardeners truly enjoy sharing
their knowledge and expertise with you on the web, by telephone, or in person
on your next visit to one of our Burnaby, North Vancouver or Victoria area
garden centres. Click on the “contact us” button on the navigation bar above
for contact & location information.
Although winter is far from over, January
finds us enjoying slightly longer days and (perhaps a little prematurely)
thinking of spring! A visit to one of our garden centres will certainly evoke
visions of spring, with colourful primroses and potted bulbs, gently persuaded
into bloom, providing a much needed mid-winter pick-me-up. With a myriad of
flower and vegetable seeds arriving throughout January, it’s easy to lose track
of time browsing all the seed racks, planning your 2014 garden.
Before spring arrives though, there’s ample
time to enjoy some of nature’s winter jewels – witch hazel, hellebores,
Himalayan sweetbox, skimmia, and more - shrubs and perennials that display
their most attractive qualities to those adventurous souls willing to brave
winter conditions. For those of you dreaming of more tropical conditions, we
have a fresh offering of tropical plants, locally sourced and ready to add
beauty to your home or workplace. And with some fabulous new additions to our
selection of pottery we make it easy to refresh your home décor!
If do you find yourself with a spare moment
this January, please stop in for a visit. We’d be delighted to host you as our
guest. In the meantime, we wish you health, happiness and success in your
garden in 2015!
