Vines That Bloom and Climb!

The trend of growing unique plants in containers continues to grow, which is why we are pleased to have a complete set up (on table A10 North) of beautiful tropical and annual vines available for this weekend.


This year we will have a limited supply of Mandevilla in 4.5" pots. The colours available will be red, merlot, and a strong white.


For another season we have good numbers of upright Bougainvillea plants available, in 6" round pots. 'Vara Purple' blooms early, is a more compact, bush type variety and would be ideal for containers, rather than hanging baskets.

We will also have our purple trailing variety 'Elizabeth Angus' available in 3.5" green pots. This variety would be more suitable for hanging baskets or window boxes.

Other vines of note are Cathedral Bells, Moonflower, and Aphrodite Purple Passion Vine. These are all planted in 3.5" pots, most with 2 plants per pot. Other vines planted in 2.5" pots are Heavenly Blue and President Tyler Morning Glories, as well as Cardinal and Firecracker (Mina Lobada) Vines.

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 no problem and you have the greenhouse almost to yourself.

12" Mixed Sun Hanging Baskets

For those of you who missed the release date last weekend, there is still a good
selection of our 12" mixed sunhanging baskets available.

Hanging Basket Shopping Reminder:
Please do not re-hang Hanging Baskets!

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!
