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.

NEW HOURS! The Nursery is NOW OPEN EVERY DAY 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

We look forward to continuing to help gardeners get growing! It's a good time to view the rhodos in bloom.


Update! We have changed our parking lot system and there will no longer be a wait once inside the gate. Instead, when we have reached our customer capacity, vehicles may be required to wait on the road. Once inside the gate customers will be able to immediately park and begin shopping. All physical distancing measures are still required. For your comfort, we currently have a male and female porta-potty in the parking lot.

We currently do not have the capacity to accommodate online orders for parking lot pickup. We truly appreciate your wishing to shop with us and regret that at the moment we are unale to offer pickup service.

If you have any questions, please email us at cc-nursery@dinternursery.ca and we will respond to you as soon as we possibly can. This can sometimes take up to 48 hours.

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.

This is a good time to view Paul's Scarlet Hawthorne or Red Flowering May tree.


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.
