Dear Gardeners

Welcome to our website – a convenient place to find information and advice on British Columbia gardening as February arrives and spring seems just a bit closer!  Our of staff gardeners truly enjoy sharing their knowledge and expertise with you on the web, by telephone, or in person on your visit to one of our Burnaby, North Vancouver or Victoria area garden centres.  Click on the “contact us” button on the navigation bar above for contact & location information.

Although spring has yet not arrived, as we bid adieu to a mild and gentle January winter, the pace at the garden centres is really starting to pick up. We now have a full selection of flower and vegetable seeds from a wide range of seed suppliers, along with all the supplies you’ll need to get those seeds off to a great start.
-
Keep an eye this month on our GardenNews Column. We’ll be doing regular updates to announce or remind you of new events happening at the garden centres. Two important events are already scheduled:
-
Saturday Feb 7th and Sunday Feb 8th - Join us for Our Orchid Obsessions Weekend!-
Featuring a great selection of stunning orchids, including Dancing Lady, Lady Slipper, Dendrobium and Cymbidium orchids, and many more. The orchid society is helping us out, with orchid enthusiasts in the stores from 11am to 3pm each day to help answer questions. Watch for seminars too – a great way to introduce yourself to the wonderful world of orchids.
-
Saturday Feb 14th – Valentine’s Day-
We love it when Valentine’s Day falls on a weekend, as it does this year. When February 14th is a weekday, our guests often rush in and out, grabbing a flowering plant (or a beautiful bouquet of flowers at our GardenWorks at Mandeville location) “on the fly”. This year’s Saturday Valentine’s Day allows for a bit more time to browse our full selection of colourful plants, offered both indoors and out, and to perhaps choose something beautiful that holds a special meaning – the perfect Valentine’s combination.
-
Throughout February, we’ll be filling up our nurseries with fresh trees, shrubs, vines and perennials. Fruit trees & bushes are usually available by the 3rd week of February – sometimes earlier, depending mostly on the weather.
-
For now though, we are happy report that we are well underway with an inspiring selection of the earliest blooming plants, including witch hazel, camellias, daphne, sweet box, amazing hellebores and more. Bright and cheerful primulas fill our bedding plant greenhouses, along with a selection of spring blooming bulbs that have been gently persuaded to prepare to bloom just a little early – teasing us with visions of spring! Stop by for a visit – you are sure to be inspired!
