From the shadows of the North Shore Mountains to the shores of southern Vancouver Island, we’ve experienced a terrific fall! We’ve enjoyed our fair share of cozy fall weather, as well as dazzling displays of autumn colours courtesy of the Ginkgos, Sourwoods, Ironwoods and maples that grace our neighbourhoods. As autumn progresses, leaves are slowly falling to reveal clusters of shining berries, colourful branches and interesting branching patterns – just one more stage in the changing of the seasons.

Although our Garden Centres are busy with the change of the seasons, helping gardeners to complete fall tasks and prepare for winter is our first priority. Garden clean up, protection of winter veggie gardens and preparing tender plants for winter are 3 tasks that gardeners are working on, and we have all the garden supplies and advice to help you accomplish these jobs – drop by for a chat, we’ll be happy to help in any way possible.

Those magical Spring blooming bulbs can be planted with success for most of November. We have a wide selection of lovely tulips, deer resistant daffodils, fragrant hyacinths and many other spring blooming favourites!

Fall is an excellent time to plant trees and shrubs. Although things wind down through November, our nurseries maintain a good selection of plants for those last minute landscape projects!

Many of our guests are still quite eager to refresh their patio and entry pots with plants that offer long lasting fall & winter interest, and we’ve responded by keeping a fresh selection of colourful annuals and interesting perennials that will last through the rest of the fall and into the winter.

For all you plant lovers - from Hellebore, Heather & Heuchera to red osier, Callicarpa, Harry Lauder’s walking stick and a selection of colourful conifers, we feature plenty of plants that add interest to the fall & winter garden, all worth considering!

In addition to all the fall gardening activities, our preparations for Christmas and the holidays are well underway. We get an early start to be sure the garden centres are inspiring and spectacular when you too start thinking about your preparation for the holidays. Check out the holiday home décor and Christmas ornaments on display at our two Burnaby garden centres, as well as the much expanded selection and presentation at our Saanich location!

We’re plant experts, and any visit to our garden centres is a delight – we start November with an offering of  blooming Christmas Cactus, and as the month progresses, begin to display a selection of Christmas favourites like poinsettias & fragrant evergreens, then closer to the end of the month our first fresh cut Christmas trees. We also have a delightful selection of captivating orchids, ferns, tillandsias as well as many outdoor treasures!

There’s so much to enjoy - we’ll give you great ideas and a fabulous selection of “everything to make your holiday festive!” Please mark November 19th on your calendar – that’s the date when we officially reveal it all, at our Christmas Open House – we look forward to seeing you there.

Enjoy each and every glowing day of fall, and be sure to visit us for any of your fall and winter gardening needs!
