From seeding, cuttings, nurturing and caring for a wide variety of young plants, annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetable transplants, a fantastic collection of shrubs, trees to take care of including their and our environment we share and utilize.
    We are horticultural artisans, the greenhouses, the yard, the display gardens are man powered.
    Flower power is one of our definition. The connexions are endless.

    Our preferred community partners are The Pink Days in Bloom, The local Health Foundation, The Wilcox Garden, and the Newfoundland Pony PonyPal Project. We host field trips for schools and we get involved with any school garden projects.

    Through out the seasons, the care and needs change, we are operating from March until December.
    We have strong connections with France, and we speak French.
    Our fantastic team of local people are so welcoming to all the visitors we have had the past 20 years.
