Welcome to our website – a great starting point for information and advice for your British Columbia garden. Our staff gardeners have a wealth of practical advice and garden tips based on their experience in their own gardens in Victoria, Burnaby, around Vancouver and on the North Shore, and look forward to sharing these 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 or locations of each of our garden centres.
It’s an inspiring time to escape to the garden. Spring has gotten off to an early start, and changes to the landscape are noticeable every day! Most perennials, trees and shrubs have awoken from dormancy, and colour the landscape with bright green new growth and a spectacular display of spring blossoms. Warmer temperatures and longer days provide more opportunities to complete those major early spring gardening activities.
It’s the ideal time for lawn care, garden clean up, and the preparation of garden beds, as well as planting perennials, trees & shrubs and cheerful spring annuals like pansies, ranunculus and osteospermum.
We're ready to help you get these tasks completed easily, with a wide selection of gardening products and gardening advice.
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 have your heart set on getting some heat lovers off to an early start, we do have some tricks to share to help you be successful!
With a mild early spring, we’ve been receiving frequent deliveries of healthy, fresh perennials for many weeks, with our selection growing now by leaps and bounds! With many gardeners eager to start getting hanging baskets and planters going, our selection of basket stuffers and summer blooming annuals is expanding rapidly now as well.
As April unfolds, visit us often to discover the superb selection of trees, shrubs and vines that arrive each week, including spring favourites like rhododendrons, azaleas, magnolias and many more! If you love Japanese maples, you’ll be pleased to know that we have an exceptional selection of cultivars this spring. They are leafing out now and are spectacular!
With so much happening, check the GardenNews section of our website often for information on seminars, special events, product features and sales. If you use Facebook, visit us there – it’s a chance to interact in a friendly and informal environment!
