May is truly a pivotal month for West Coast gardeners. Between the beginning and end of the month the weather pattern changes enough that when it comes to planting and garden care, almost anything goes! A continuous warming trend allows us to plant bedding plants with confidence. Early in the month, take care to protect transplants overnight if temperatures drop, and wait unit mid – to late May to plant heat loving annuals & vegetables like cucumbers, zucchini, basil and peppers outdoors.  Anytime in May is ideal for planting trees, shrubs, and perennials. If you have questions, consult one of the many experienced gardeners at our garden centres, or drop us a line at

For Mother’s day our garden centres fill to bursting with hanging baskets, planters and amazing flowering plants that make exceptional gifts for Mom. Our selection of interesting perennials, annuals and shrubs is at its peak through the month, with many captivating plants coming in to our garden centres daily and then going home with eager gardeners just as quickly – there are so many gems to choose from, it is difficult not to be inspired!

In addition to all the amazing plants that keep our garden centres bursting at the seams, we’ve recently received several shipments of ceramic pottery as well as some classic outdoor furniture. The rest of the garden necessities and accessories  – soils, fertilizers, tools and more – may be taken for granted, but of course we have them all – Everything to Make Your Garden Work!

In addition, there are unique offerings at each store – home and garden décor, fashion and fashion accessories, the Café and fresh cut flowers at GARDENWORKS at Mandeville, healthy and inspiring tropical plants and much more! Please stop by for a visit - we look forward to seeing you soon!
