The Blenkinsop Road garden centre is our largest store on Vancouver Island. It is situated in the picturesque Blenkinsop Valley, just 20 minutes outside of Downtown Victoria. The site is over three acres with a large outdoor nursery sales area for trees and shrubs and a covered bedding plant greenhouse of almost 7000 square feet that allows comfortable shopping even during those infrequent Victoria sprinkles.
This garden centre excels in its selection of ornamental trees, shrubs and perennials. Our staff are committed plant lovers who know their stuff. They know their sources and can find almost any plant you could name and do it quickly. The mild climate in the area allows us to bring in an excellent selection early in the season and makes it easier for you to do your planting at the right time of the season.
Our selection of garden supplies is based on the requirements of the gardening on the Island – fertilizers, soils, and supplies specifically needed.
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 Tuesdays from 9:30am – 5pm, take advantage of a FREE 20 minute consultation with a landscape designer.
