The Great Citrus Pre-Order
("Hardy 'Owari' Satsuma and Friends")

Grow your own citrus outside in coastal BC plus grow an even wider selection with a little winter protection.

Last year our 'Owari' Satsuma Pre-Order was a resounding success. There are now many plants settled into BC gardens about to spend their first winter. Once they have a year or two of maturity, it will be at this time of year that proud gardeners are harvesting their own satsuma mandarin oranges at this time of year.

The ‘Owari’ satsuma is just one of a number of hardy citrus that can be grown outdoors in coastal BC. There is the Citrumelo hardy grapefruit, the 'Nagami' kumquat and, highly sought after for culinary pursuits, the Yuzu and Suchachi ichandrins which are hardy to zone 7!

We also have on offer another 31 different Citrus and 3 cold tolerant avocados if you have a place where you can keep them above freezing (zone 9 plants) and above about 5-8 degrees Celsius (zone 10 plants) in a greenhouse, sunroom, or inside the house. The plants from this pre-order will be available for pick-up in mid May.

Brazelberry Pre-Order

Brazelberries are one of the hottest edible items for gardens and patios. They are dwarf berry bushes (five blueberries, one raspberry, and the new dwarf, thornless blackberry 'Baby Cakes') that can be grown in pots on your patio or in the garden. They are attractive plants that produce tons of fruit. What could be better than fresh blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries right from your own garden on beautiful plants that make your garden look great year-round? Pre-order now for pick-up in mid April (exact date yet to be determined). We will email you closer to the pick-up date to let you know exactly when you can get your hands on your new berry bushes!

NEW! Rubus 'Baby Cakes' -- Blackberry -- 'Baby Cakes' is a dwarf, thornless blackberry producing large, delicious berries in midsummer and, in cool summer regions like the west coast, again in fall. Plants have a rounded growth habit reaching 3-4 feet tall and wide. They will grow perfectly in a large container or are the right scale for planting in small space gardens. Plants ripen fruit gradually over a long period with both ripe black and unripe red fruits on the plant at the same time creating an ornamental display. Pure white flowers are borne in spring.
