We continue to be so thankful for the support and enthusiasm of all the gardeners who have come in to buy Tropicals, Succulents, and early season items or just to walk through our greenhouse and feel Spring approaching! 

We love hearing the bustle and excitement of a new season, and we are grateful for everyone's kindness and patience while we navigate our way through another season during the pandemic. 

Thank you for wearing your mask or face covering while you are shopping with us.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Gourmet Salad Bowls and Hardy Vegetables

Below are some assorted gourmet lettuce bowls that are almost ready for harvesting!  Lettuce is an extremely hardy early vegetable to grow. These bowls can continue growing outside on your patio or deck and only require a little protection if the temperatures suddenly drop to below -5.

You'll find a great selection of early hardy vegetable plants out on table B6 and C6.  Choose from Broccoli, Lettuce, Arugula, Mesclun Mix, Kale, Cabbage, Chard, Beets, Cauliflower, Onions, Leeks and Brussel Sprouts.
 

 

Hardy Succulents Anyone?

 
We have a great selection of mixed Hardy Succulent bowls that are beginning to wake up for the season.  Choose from 14" and 16" bowls with a mixture of Sempervivum (Hens & Chicks), Delosperma (Ice Plant) and Sedum.  These bowls were planted last July and will be overflowing with fresh growth as the warmer weather arrives. 
 
You will find these on table B8 right now.

Winter and Spring Colour with Heathers

 
Our Heather selection which we bring in from a Coastal BC family business, Qualitree Plant Program Specialists has arrived!  You can choose from Erica 'Kraemers Red' and Erica 'Alba'.  You will find these on table C18.
Erica darleyensis is one of the easiest Heathers to grow, tolerating almost any soil and requiring little pruning, other than a little trim once they finish blooming to promote more branching.  Buds form in late summer or very early fall, some blooming as late as September, often lasting until the following May.  The flowers open pale and deepen as the season progresses.  They make a stunning addition to your containers or your garden beds.
 

Early 5.5" Potted Tomatoes

 
The early planting of Tomatoes in 5.5" pots will be available starting on Friday.  These are for the lucky few who have a greenhouse or solarium to grow and get some tasty, fresh homegrown fruits!  Our regular production of tomatoes is well underway and will be available in April. 

You will find these on table A2 and A3 South.

Assorted Early 5.5" potted Tomato Plants.
Choose from many varieties including Tumbler, Big Beef, Juliet, Big Boy, Early Girl and more!
