Dear Gardeners

Welcome to our website. We have six garden centres serving the Victoria region on the Island and Vancouver, Burnaby and North Shore on the mainland– click on the Hours & Locations button to find the garden centre nearest you. We offer a selection of gardening tips here on our website – click on Gardening Tips for a list information sheets. We are also happy to field any gardening questions you may have – click on the Contact Us button to send us a question or comment via email.
Tulips, daffodil and other favourites, planted in November, will reward with a superb floral display next spring. For best results, plant your bulbs as early in the month as possible. At the same time brighten things up by planting winter pansies, ornamental cabbage & kale, colourful Swiss chard and even cold tolerant mini-cyclamen in your outdoor planters and prominent locations in the garden!
On the West Coast, early November is a great time to plant trees & shrubs, as well as to transplant or move trees, shrubs and perennials, and now is the time to start thinking about winter protection for tender plants that you want to keep for next year. If you find that you need any garden supplies or advice as you put your garden to bed for the winter, stop by or give us a call!
As you tackle some general garden clean-up, be sure to take steps to protect any tender plants in your garden – hardy banana, New Zealand flax and windmill palms are among the plants that thrive when our winters are mild, but will not fare as well if we experience an exceptionally cold season. If you have questions about protecting your tender plants, visit any of our garden centres - we’ll be delighted to see you, and to answer any questions you might have.
If you do get a chance to stop by in the next few weeks, you’ll notice big changes as we prepare the garden centres for the upcoming holiday season. Seasonal décor, poinsettias and other holiday plants as well as fresh, fragrant evergreen bunches take centre stage as the month progresses. Regular visitors to our stores in Victoria, North Vancouver and Burnaby look forward to our amazing holiday displays, which are sure to be showcased at our Christmas Open House Event, held on Thursday November 20th. Watch for details on our website, or sign up for emails to be sure to receive news on this and other special activities, decorating clinics, and special shopping events we offer to you, our valued guests, during November and December!
