Our Roots

West Coast Gardens has a long rooted history, founded by the VanderMey family in 1981, with a team that has over 70 years of innovative growing experience. We are a trusted Surrey garden centre, nursery, and destination retail location for the BC Lower Mainland.

As a third-generation grower, Jason VanderMey literally grew up with the garden as his playground, learning the trade from his parents. Jason and his wife, Wybranda, have teamed up with Nathan and Jill Van Huizen, as owners of West Coast Gardens, Surrey garden centre and nursery, adding another 15 years of industry experience to the dynamic team. Collectively, they are dedicated to continuing to grow the best garden and plant products, while creating a fantastic customer experience. Read more about our nursery & greenhouses here.

From the family farm nestled on 24 acres in South Surrey, British Columbia, West Coast Gardens grows, supplies, and delivers unique and compelling products that inspire a love for garden and home. 

Our Surrey garden centre offers a wide selection of outdoor annuals, perennials, shrubs, herbs and more for your garden. We are also known for our indoor tropicals, homegrown succulents and a variety of plants for your home. Our moss hanging baskets have become famous for their gorgeous overflowing blooms which last all spring and summer, with new colour and design additions each year! Read more about our history here.

Our History

Founded on the site of a 50 year old nursery, our home + garden lifestyle store is deeply rooted in nature. West Coast Gardens has a dynamic history, beginning when the VanderMey family emigrated from Rijsenburg in the late 40’s, after WWII, and settled in the Queensborough area, Tom VanderMey purchased land and began growing crops, particularly Chrysanthemums and Tulips.
