Welcome to our website – a great starting point for information and advice for gardeners in and around Vancouver, Victoria, the North Shore and beyond! We embrace the opportunity to share this information with you on the web, by telephone, or face-to-face on your next visit to one of our neighbourhood garden centres.  Click on the "CONTACT US" button on the navigation bar above for contact information for locations of each of our six garden centres.

April is an excellent time for many gardening activities, including transplanting trees & shrubs, dividing & moving perennials, pruning, applying fertilizer, spring lawn care, garden bed preparation and much more. If you require advice, the experienced gardeners at all our garden centres are familiar with these activities and are eager to answer all your gardening questions. If you are looking for some quick tips or a place to get started, click here to find a selection of gardening guides for everything from growing salad greens to spring lawn care.

As spring progresses, the selection of annuals, perennials, trees, shrubs and vines available in our nurseries grows rapidly. The explosion of colour over the past few weeks is breath-taking, with pieris, rhododendrons, magnolias, flowering cherries and many more delighting us with their displays of colour, just as they are in the gardens and landscapes in our neighbourhoods. If you love Japanese Maples, you’ll be pleased to know that we have an exceptional selection of cultivars this spring. Just leafing out now, they are a sight to see!

Many herbs and vegetable starts are now available –cool loving lettuces and salad greens can be planted now, as well as many of the cole crops and culinary herbs. Hold off on planting out tomatoes, peppers, cukes and other heat lovers, at least until late in the month – if you’re unsure, just ask us. If you insist on getting some heat lovers off to an early start, we do have some tricks to share to help you be successful!

Throughout the month we have a selection of events planned for you at each of our garden centres – check on the GardenNews column on the right for regular updates and notice of sales and events, and if you have not already done so, “Like” us on Facebook for daily updates. Of course the best way to stay informed is to stop by for a visit – we hope to see you soon!
