Autumn is at your Doorstep!
When the leaves start changing colours, and the air gets crisp, we know it’s time for cider and pumpkins! Although some of our garden blooms may be nearing their end, Autumn is a beautiful time for container gardens and other natural accents that celebrate the season. Grasses, foliage and fall vegetables, all add texture and colour to your planters and bring Autumn right to your door!
Planting Fall's Bounty
Rustic fall textures and colours in pots
Autumn container gardens can hold a plethora of beautiful hues and textures, especially with gorgeous foliage like the dark purple heuchera and purple fountain grass! Rather than stick to traditional oranges and reds, we enjoy using surprising fall colour schemes such as violet, white and silvers on the patio. They work wonderfully with pots that have a weathered and worn look!
Pastel Pumpkin Collection
Delightful colours for fall
Cinderella isn’t the only one who needed a pumpkin! We love to dot our patios and walkways (not to mention inside our homes) with these beautiful pastel pumpkins. They are all locally grown right here in Surrey BC. This year we have Polar Bear, Lumina, Blue Hubbard, Jarrahdale, Rouge Vif D’etempes, Long Island Cheese. Porcelain Doll and Flat Stacker!

An Autumn Tradition We Love
Chrysanthemums in Our Greenhouse
It’s a yearly tradition, our giant Chrysanthemum plants with hundreds of colourful blooms, grown right here in our greenhouses for you! We grow over 3000 mums for the fall, which we nurture from cutting to bloom for 12 weeks before they’re ready to be adopted. From pink to orange, and classic white, there’s a pot of mums ready to highlight your doorstep this Autumn.
