Welcome to our website - a great starting point for information and horticultural advice for your West Coast garden. Our staff gardeners have a wealth of practical advice and garden tips based on their experience in their own gardens in Victoria, the North Shore, and in and around Vancouver, 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 for locations of each of our six garden centres.
It’s a great time to garden! Warm, moist soil and long days mean that freshly planted veggies, bedding plants and perennials establish quickly and grow rapidly. Many annuals that prefer longer days and more heat can now be planted out with confidence. Coleus, portulaca, zinnias, sweet potato vine and basil are just a few of the "hottest" plants available starting in early June.
Now is also the perfect time to add roses to your garden. We have a tempting selection of both Weeks and David Austin roses that have set buds and are just starting to bloom! Many of our perennials, including favourites like lilies, poppies, Shasta daisies and lavender are either in bloom or starting to bloom, making it easy to choose plants with just the right flowers for your garden!
If you consider yourself a “plant nut”, drop by often for a quick look around - many new and interesting plants arrive, often unheralded, at this time of year. The garden centres have several events planned for the month, starting with our “Lavender Love-in”. Check our GardenNews column for event announcements, or click here to sign up to receive email notification of sales and special events.
Warmer temperatures and late sunsets translate to more time spent outdoors. In addition to beautiful plants, our garden centres have a selection of quality outdoor furniture and gorgeous ceramic pottery to help create a comfortable and beautiful setting on your patio, balcony or deck – perfect for winding down at the end of the day, or for summer entertaining.
As you plant and putter in your garden, observe the satisfying progress of your plants and be sure to follow up on any concerns you might have. Our staff of garden enthusiasts are always at the ready with the right products, helpful hints, and practical advice to contribute to your gardening success - we look forward to helping you and to hearing about your gardening successes too!
