It's Spring!

Annual Perennial Exchange Saturday, March 21st

Would you like some free perennials for your garden? If so, then get out into your garden and divide those extra perennials and bring them along to our Exchange to trade with other gardeners. Bring bags or boxes to carry your plants in and remember you must take any leftovers home. The Exchange begins at 9:30 Sharp so be at the nursery between 9-9:20 a.m. to get things set up and to make sure you don't miss out on any treasures! For those new to gardening with nothing to trade, come along anyway - you could still end up with some plants to take home! NOTE: Herbaceous Perennials only - no shrubs please.

Fruit Trees

Our bare root fruit trees are now on display. To check what varieties we carry, please go to the Fruit Tree Page on the website. The mild moist conditions are ideal for planting fruit trees. This is an example of an Italian Prune Plum tree almost ready for harvest.


The WEST COAST SEEDS catalogue is at the Nursery. This is a great opportunity to plan your Spring garden!
