Mason Bees– Fall Cleaning and Winter Storage, with Brian Guzda
October 20 from 1:30pm to 3:30pm
Brian’s interest in working with bees goes back some 40 years. He initially started with Honey bees, becoming interested in Mason bees as a pollinator substitute when Honey bee populations plummeted about 15 years ago. This workshop will be of interest to both novice and experienced individuals, and is free to attend. It will focus primarily on fall cleaning of cocoons and winter storage. Please call, drop by, or email Patricia to register.

October 27 from 1:30 – 2:30pm
This seminar is free to attend, and will teach you how to layer bulbs and over plant with foliage textures and beautiful colour. Please call, drop by, or email Patricia to register.
The Oak Bay garden centre is located on Oak Bay Avenue, just at the edge of the main shopping district of Oak Bay. It’s the pretty little sand-coloured house with all the flowers out front. Many of our customers walk to the garden centre, but we do have a ten car parking lot next door.
This garden centre is a full service garden centre that caters to “hort junkies” to novices alike. With an ever-growing number of townhouses and condominiums in the area, we specialize in plant containers and smaller trees, shrubs, and vines. Our garden centre manager has cultivated excellent relationships with a number of local growers and, as a result, the selection of annuals and perennials is similar to what you would expect to find in a much larger store.
A new feature of the garden centre is our “Potting Shed”. We have taken over the retail space next door and have filled it with our line of pottery that we import directly from Malaysia and Vietnam, as well as all the tools and garden supplies you need to complete any garden project. With this added space we can now also carry a much wider selection of smaller trees, shrubs, and vines as well as having more space for annuals and perennials in spring. In between our original garden centre and the new space we have also renovated our tropical plant greenhouse so we can offer a greater number of tropical foliage plants.
Our Landscape Design Division provides our customers with a professional landscape planning service. We can arrange the service that suits your needs – an at home consultation, or complete design service. Like all GARDENWORKS services, you will receive expert advice and quality plants backed by our Green Thumb Guarantee. You can contact our Landscape Division serving the Greater Victoria.
Offered on Wednesdays between 9:30am – noon, take advantage of a FREE 20 minute consultation with a landscape designer.
