Looking forward to seeing you soon!

There is a complete set up of pot Dahlias on the tables lining the south wall of selling section A (tables S8 & S9).

We still have a nice selection of Coastal Calla Lilies available on table W1.  With vibrant colours, larger flowers, and stronger stems in clusters, they will be a great addition to your patio containers or flower beds.  Choose from 15 varieties with colours of bright golden yellow, reds, orange, pink, midnight purple and even black!

Other plants still in good supply for 'indoor to outdoor' use are Gerberas, Rex Begonias, Dahlias and even Martha Washingtons.  Have some nice fresh colour on your dinner table and then out in your planters or garden.
Parking Reminder
The Greenery's Side Gate for Parking
Reminder! You can park diagonally alongside our side gate, just around the corner of our main entrance, and walk through our regular parking lot.

Just a friendly reminder to everyone that it is illegal to obstruct the bike lane and you can be towed.

The busy rush caused by 'Gardening Fever' only happens for a short time each year, so please be patient trying to park and remember to stay off the bike lane!

Remember we are open Friday until 7pm - during those later hours, parking is very reasonable and you have the greenhouse almost to yourself.


Thank-you!
Water Plants Arriving Soon!

A good selection of water plants including floaters and Water Lilies will be arriving from our supplier in Delta, and will be available for Saturday morning.  

Choose from marginals (water plants which you plant or place the pot into the water at varying depths depending on the species) such as: 
  • Equisetum japonica (Snake Grass)
  • Pontederia cordata (Pickerelweed)
  • Schizostylis coccinea (Scarlet River Daisy)
  • Thalia Dealbata (Powdery Alligator Flag)
  • Typha gracilis and Typha latifolia variegatus (Cat Tails).

In the way of floaters, there will be a selection of:

 

Water Lilies will be available in 7 varieties including shades of red and pink as well as yellow, white, orange and a dark purple/ burgundy.  All of the Water Lilies we will have available are hardy for our zone and should be submerged at a minimum depth of 12" for best performance.  All of our water plants can be found at the back of selling section B along table B20 and the south wall separating selling section A and B.

Hanging Basket Shopping Reminder!

To all our valued customers: 
When you are in our store shopping for that coveted hanging basket, please do not hang the baskets back up if you change your mind during the selection process. Simply leave the basket(s) on an empty table space and one of our staff will gladly hang the basket up for another day.

This allows us to ensure the basket is firmly hooked on the pipe so we do not have any "jumpers", as well as allows us to make sure the trickle line is placed in the basket so that we do not have any baskets go without irrigation.


Thank-you for your co-operation!
