Arts Nursery

How does 10-acres of all-things-garden grab you? Art’s Nursery in Surrey is like Disneyland for the garden enthusiast, thoughtfully laid out in an organized manner that makes plant shopping easier, and fun. Time to plant a cherry or apple tree?

Be sure and hop on their website, newsletter and social media pages or information and updates. Celebrating 50+ years in business says a lot about this company.


Cedar Rim Nursery

Langley’s Cedar Rim Nursery has been in the area for over 40 years and is indeed a family affair with mom, dad and their adult kids all contributing to the business. We love the variety of different plants, gardening books, and accessories like garden gloves, watering cans, hummingbird feeders and more.

Prince George’s Hunniford Gardens has been a big part of this community since 1985. ‘The Farm’ is a retail garden centre plus the spot where many of the plants for sale here are grown. Shop for vegetables and herbs for your own kitchen garden, shade trees, berry bushes and much more.



Gardenworks with ten locations all over BC is much loved since 1984 for its upscale shopping experience, including hard-to-find plants and products. Each store location is locally owned and operated. The selection of pottery is nothing short of staggering, including outdoor, glazed pots the size of hot tubs. Check the website for events and workshops hosted by experts in your area.
