Greetings!

 

We've got longer hours and extra parking!

 

With the weather improving and more people thinking about gardening, we would like to remind you that we are open until 6pm on Thursdays and Fridays, and will be open until 7pm for the four Fridays in May.

We will also open the side gate on Longhill Rd, just around the corner from our main entrance, where you can diagonally park alongside our fence and walk into our regular parking lot.

 

Sometimes it's good to be small: Miniature Roses

 

An assortment of miniature roses has arrived from Wilson's Nursery in Chilliwack, BC.  Most of the 30 varieties, including 5 climbing varieties are already in bud or bloom!

Choose by fragrance, single, semi double or double blooms or by colour, whether it be a soft pink or yellow, a bright orange or red, or a unique bi-colour.

For those of you who love the bright, colourful daisy-like flowers of Gazanias, we have a new series to check out!

Just as heat and drought tolerant (once established) as the varieties you've already grown, the Sunbather series offers bright, uniquely coloured, large, semi double blooms that will not close up on darker, cloudier days.

 

 

Calla Lilies  

 

We now have our selection of Dutch Calla Lilies available.  With vibrant colours, larger flowers, and stronger stems, they will be a great addition to your patio containers or flower beds.

Choose from 12 varieties with colours of bright golden yellow, reds, orange, pink, midnight purple and even black!
