We also have a great selection of outdoor hardy Spring planters to welcome all Easter visitors at your doorstep! All planted in containers of different styles and sizes. For something nice to hang outside, the Viola wallbags and Pansy hanging baskets are showing some really nice colour. Any of these choices would make a great surprise gift to take along to your family or friend's for an Easter visit this weekend.

Great Colour with Early Cool Crop Choices

Table of Pansies _ Violas
Table of 2.5" Potted Violas
A full selection of Pansies, Primulas, Bellis, Ranunculus, Erysimum, Cool Wave Pansies and Pot Carnations is now available.

Choose from tables full of over 100 varieties of Pansies and Violas in shades of yellow, blue, purple, red and orange.

The 4" potted Primulas are starting to show some great colour, and are ready for your Spring planter or planting into your garden bed.

The Bellis, or English Daisies are opening into cute little button-like flowers, the tiny petals making perfect little domes in shades of red, pink and white. These are often used to inter- plant in tulip and other bulb beds, but are also excellent anywhere in the garden, as well as in containers.

Cool Wave Pansies are the earliest to bloom in the Spring, and the blooms hold up well in rain and weather better than the large flowered types. These trailing pansies are the most vigorous and prostrate of any spreading pansy and make unique baskets, mixed combos, and great ground covers.

These Bushes are Berry Good...
 
We have a good selection of Raspberries and Blueberries as well as Blackberries, Currants, Grapes and Boysenberries. Choose from over 12 varieties of Raspberries including favourites such as Heritage, Tulameen and Prelude. The 6 Blueberry varieties include Northland, Duke, Bluecrop, Reka, Chandler- producing the largest size berries and Wild Blueberry- the low growing native variety.

In addition to our smaller starter sizes that we have available, a full selection of berries in larger pots will be arriving, including Haskap (Honeyberries), Blueberries, Raspberries, Grapes, Goji Berries, Black Currants, Sea Buckthorns (Seaberries), Gooseberries, Saskatoon Berries and a selection of BrazelBerries!

BrazelBerries
BrazelBerries are a collection of berry varieties that offer ornamental qualities as well as amazing edible fruits on small stature bushes. The idea is that you can plant these plants in containers on your patio, balcony or anywhere in your landscape, requiring minimal care and allowing for a rewarding and easy harvest.

BrazelBerry Raspberry Shortcake

Try out BrazelBerry 'Raspberry Shortcake'--a true dwarf, thornless raspberry plant that produces sweet fruits. Or try 'Blueberry Glaze', 'Peach Sorbet', 'Pink Icing' or 'Jelly Bean'--three super compact blueberry plants that have incredible ornamental qualities while producing beautiful plump berries.

Goji Berry
Goji Berry is a somewhat sweet "superfruit" that can be eaten fresh, dried or frozen. Bright orange-red berries mature in the late summer. These plants are self pollinating and begin flowering in the second year, with maximum fruit production in the fourth or fifth year.

Early Shrubs

There will be a selection of shrubs available this weekend as well. Choose from Double Flowering Plum, Hellikki Rhododendron, French Lilac and Forsythia, which will soon be a popular request as people begin to see the brilliant golden blossoms burst open along the branches before any signs of foliage.
