Types of Outdoor Plants
At GARDENWORKS Nanaimo, we have a wide selection of outdoor plants to choose from. Whether you're looking for fruit and vegetables, annuals, perennials, or seeds and bulbs, we have something for everyone. Each type of plant has its own unique characteristics and can add a distinct touch to your outdoor space.
Fruit, Vegetables & Herbs
Fruit and vegetable plants are a great way to not only add beauty to your garden but also to have a functional space where you can grow your own fresh produce. At GARDENWORKS Nanaimo, we have a wide selection of fruit and vegetable plants to choose from.
Annual plants are those that complete their life cycle in one growing season. This means that they will need to be replanted every year. Annuals are a great option for adding pops of colour to your garden, as they come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and hues. At GARDENWORKS Nanaimo, we have a selection of annuals to choose from to add some bright and cheerful accents to your garden.
Perennial plants are those that live for more than two years and return year after year. This makes them a great investment for your garden, as you won't have to replant them every year. Perennials can add structure, texture, and interest to your garden, and come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and colours. At GARDENWORKS, we have a selection of perennials to choose from to add some long-lasting beauty to your garden.
Seeds & Bulbs
Seeds and bulbs are a great way to add new plants to your garden, as they offer a wide variety of options and can be more cost-effective than buying fully-grown plants. Seeds can be sown directly into the ground or started indoors in seed trays or pots, while bulbs can be planted in the fall for blooms in the spring. At GARDENWORKS, we have a selection of seeds and bulbs to choose from to help you add some new plants to your garden.

- Fertilize your plants according to their specific needs.
- Prune your plants regularly to remove dead or damaged foliage and encourage healthy growth.
