Celebrating 47 Years in the Cowichan Valley!

Dinter Nursery is located in Duncan on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. The nursery is a 45 minute drive north of Victoria and 5 km south of Duncan just off the Island Highway. We offer well qualified and knowledgeable staff to help you make your gardening selections.

UPDATE! Starting April 13th the Nursery will be open 10 to 5 EVERY DAY EXCEPT WEDNESDAYS! Thursday, Saturday and Sunday April 9, 11 and 12 we will be open 10 to 4 pm. CLOSED Good Friday April 10th.

Please note that we will be following even stricter protocols for COVID-19 than before our closure. You may be asked to wait in your car for another customer to leave before you begin browsing. We have reorganized our retail area to have a clear traffic flow and will be enforcing physical distancing. We will allow very limited customers into the store at one time.

Thank you to everyone who placed an order with us via our online order form for parking lot pickup! We tried this new system for one week while our nursery was closed to public foot traffic.

We received an overwhelming number of orders but unfortunately, we did not have the capacity to fill all the online orders in a timely manner and therefore have to discontinue our online ordering system. A very grateful thank you to our customers for continuing to support us during this difficult time.

If you have any questions, please email us at cc-nursery@dinternursery.ca and we will respond to you as soon as possible.

Thank you again for your patience with us as we navigate the best way forward. Stay safe and enjoy gardening.

The nursery is well stocked with plant material, accessories, seeds and seasonal bedding plants and vegetables. We have 5 acres of outside space to shop with good physical distancing. Customer service will be limited to minimize face to face contact with the public. We thank you in advance for observing our safety protocols to make Dinter's a safe place to shop. Being in the garden can give sanctuary from the uncertainty of the world around us.

Look out for early early blooming shrubs, flowering plums and rhododendrons to bring welcome colour to your garden. It is not too late to prune fruit trees, roses, hydrangeas and other summer flowering shrubs but remember that spring flowering plants are pruned after blooming.


We have a great selection of tubers available for planting.

Do not forget your indoor spaces. Have a browse through our tropical plants. These will brighten up any room.

Della, our Greenhouse Manager has provided a list of the Tomatoes we will be carrying this year. Look under the Greenhouse Tab for the list.

We have updated our Fruit Tree List, Rhodo List and Rose List for what we will be carrying in 2020. Check it out by clicking on the Fruit Tree, Rhodo and Rose Tabs.
