It's Spring!

Fruit trees are in the nursery and we still have a selection of dormant bare root trees. They should be planted by early April.

Check out our Tomato Varieties and Their Uses on our Staff Tips page and the Tomato List for 2014 located on the Greenhouse Tab.

Japanese flowering plums and cherries are coming into bloom in the Cowichan Valley. Pictured below are the Akebono Cherries on Canada Avenue in Duncan, giving a cheerful splash of colour to the city landscape. We carry a broad selection of flowering and shade trees as seen on the list on our Tree Page. Come by to see the trees in bloom so you can select the colour you want! Having even one flowering tree will brighten up your property for years to come.


We carry a large selection of vegetable and flower seeds, including 4 racks of the popular West Coast Seeds. For a head start in the garden, we carry transplants of hardy vegetables.
