Bushel & Berry Selection

Bushel & Berry bushes (previously called 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.

'Raspberry Shortcake'
Bushel & Berry
'Jelly Bean'

Try out Bushel & Berry 'Raspberry Shortcake'--a true dwarf, thornless raspberry plant that produces sweet fruits. Or try 'Blueberry Glaze', 'Peach Sorbet', 'Pink Icing' or 'Jelly Bean'--four super compact blueberry plants that have incredible ornamental qualities while producing beautiful plump berries.  'Blueberry Perpetua' offers TWO crops of delicious berries, the first in mid-summer and the second in the fall, while also offering beautiful foliage that turns deep reds and greens in the winter.

'Blackberry Baby Cakes', is a dwarf thornless bush reaching only 3' to 4' in height and width that produces large, sweet, juicy berries.

Bushel & Berry 'Peach Sorbet'

Hardy Figs -'Chicago Hardy' is now available in addition to 'Desert King' and 'Olympian'.  Even though these three cool season varieties are hardy to zone 5 or 6 we find they are best grown in containers in order to extend their growing season and allow their fruits to fully mature.  They will bear medium to extra large fruit on eventual 8' to 10' trees.
Bedding Pack Petunias and Wave Petunias!

Our first planting of bedding pack (4 pack) Petunia varieties, grown from seed, are now available on tables C16 to C20. 

The first Wave Petunias are also ready now! The 2.5" pots can be found on table C7 while the 3.5" pots can be found on table C8.  New this season are Wave Carmine Velour and Easy Wave Lavender Blue Sky.
Tree Peony
Tree Peony 'Hanakisoi' (Pink)
Bare Root Perennials

The bare root perennials have been potted up and are ready and can be checked out on tables B11 to B19  This would include Peonies, Tree Peonies, Daylilies, Bleeding Hearts, Hostas, Astilbe, Perennial Geraniums, Papaver (Poppies) and Ligularia, just to mention a few.

A good selection of Oriental and Asiatic Lilies are available on table F1.  Choose from favourites such as Stargazer, Casablanca, Extravaganza, Matrix and Orange Matrix as well as the compact Lily Looks series.

Also on table B17 you will find the 5.5" potted Rhubarb that so many of you have been waiting for!
'Delight' the Garden with Miniature Conifers

A wonderful assortment of 4" hardy miniature conifers from Pacific Northwest Propagators in Rosedale, BC can be found on table E17.
