Our Website


 

The purpose of this website is to inform retail customers about the types of plants available at our nursery. We're open to the public on weekends from spring until mid-Autumn. As we're primarily a wholesale greenhouse operation, we do not ship retail orders.

Tillandsia


 

 

 

Our primary wholesale line is Tillandsia species (air plants) and related accessories such as glass terrariums and other display materials. We maintain an on-site stock level of thousands of Tillandsia plants throughout the year. Our Tillandsia page contains photos & descriptions of the various Tillandsia species. Please note that this is a descriptive page only and doesn't indicate our current wholesale or retail availability. Our frequent importations from our tropical suppliers ensures that our air plants are always fresh. Feel free to print copies of our Tillandsia Care sheet for your customers: Tillandsia Guide 

 

Carnivorous Plants
 

 


 

We offer a variety of carnivorous plants from mid-April until October. Carnivorous plants indigenous to temperate climates need a winter dormancy period and we can only offer sub-tropical species during the winter months. Carnivorous plants can be picked up on site, but we need a minimum of 48 hours notice for order preparation. Carnivorous plants are sold potted in a peat/sand mixture and cannot be shipped via Canada Post or a typical courier company such as UPS. We can ship potted plants to customers in western provinces via specialty floral shippers such as ProFloral, West Coast Floral and Clark Freightways. 

 

Photos & Descriptions

 
Photos & descriptions of our plants and accessories can be viewed on the applicable pages of our retail website. Our tillandsia photos can accessed from both our 'Terrarium Design' and our 'Exotic Plants' pages. Please note that items available on our retail website are not indicative of wholesale availability.
   
Return Policy


 

All claims must be placed via phone or email within 24 hours of the shipment arrival. At our discretion, we may require that live plants are returned to us at the customer's expense before processing a refund or credit. A photo is sufficient for broken glassware claims.

Orders consisting of 'Tillandsia plants only' can also be shipped via Canada Post or FedEx.
