What better a way to brighten up a dull room or spot on the patio than by adding a lush palm to an empty corner, a colourful blooming Hibiscus, or a fragrant Gardenia near your sitting area. The popularity of houseplants and tropicals is growing quickly and so is our selection! We always maintain a large selection, as houseplants are a beautiful addition any time of year!
Tropicals make great additions to our patios, front entrances, and anywhere else because they have a unique look in our area and are full of colour. They can be kept year-round by bringing them indoors for the winter so you can continue to enjoy their beauty (link to info sheet)
Incorporating tropicals into your patio planters and beds adds instant appeal with size and colour. Use bigger tropicals as your thriller or smaller ones as your filler in any container. Try them throughout your flower beds to add height or to add a unique punch of colour and texture. Plants such as palms, snake plants, or any type of standard provide great height. Plants like crotons, hibiscus, bromeliads, and more provide great colour.
Grow your own citrus fruits (oranges, lemons, limes) and figs in your yard! These tropicals are great on sunny patios or yards, and fun for the whole family to observe as they grow and harvest when they're ripe.
Skip the cut flowers! On any occasion houseplants, either individually or in an arrangement, are a fantastic substitute for - they last much longer, provide the same colour, and sometimes even the fragrance. We keep a section of our greenhouse warm in the winter so we can keep plants year-round. Drop by anytime to bring a piece of the tropics to your home
