Happy St. Patrick's Day!


In honour of the old Irish holiday, why not try growing some Oxalis regnellii- commonly called False Shamrock. It creates a real unique effect with its beautiful dark purple clover-like leaves beneath delicate soft pink flowers.

Beautiful Mixed Planters

Wow! What a great selection of hardy spring planters in Section B. We have been busy planting up a great assortment of frost hardy mixed planters, ranging in size from 8" plastic to 15" fibre pots, as well as colour bowls. These are great as a spring gift, or will add colour and fragrance to your entryway.

Winter and Spring Colour with Heathers

This season, our Erica selection will be arriving from a Coastal BC family business, Qualitree Plant Program Specialists. You can choose from favourites such as 'Kraemers Red', 'Eva Gold', 'Arthur Johnson', 'Darley Dale', 'Mary Helen', or 'Silberschmelze'.

Erica darleyensis is one of the easiestHeathersto grow, tolerating almost any soil and requiring little pruning. Most varieties have pink or cream tips of new growth in Spring and bronze foliage in the Winter. Buds form in late summer or very early fall, some blooming as late as September, often lasting until May. The flowers open pale and deepen as the season progresses. They make a stunning addition to your containers or your garden beds.

We will have a nice selection of beautiful Erica darleyensison table B1.
