Hello Fellow Gardeners!

Happy Fall! Happy Deluge! Winter is coming. Surround yourself in plants to warm your heart and get yourself through these rainy days.

Our Fantastic Fall Sale shifts into high gear tomorrow Friday October 14th with our 2 for 1 Sale. Mix and Match any plants or other items (listed below). You don't need to get two of the same thing. In fact, you can just come shop up a storm and then we will combine your plants to maximize your savings.

Because of the crazy rainy weather in the forecast we have also pre-emptively extended the sale until Sunday October 23rd to give everyone a chance to get to the nursery in between the bouts of rain. But remember, the best stuff goes first so we recommend donning your raincoats and rubber boots and getting down to the nursery ASAP. There are treasures all over the place waiting for keen gardeners to take advantage.

While you're at it don't forget to pick up some bulbs at the nursery to layer in extra colour into your plantings. Our conventional and rare bulbs are now available at the nursery on a first come basis. And our Cyps are also now in. Ask to see them.

We have a new contest to win tickets to the Vancouver Tea Festival. Details and entry instructions are below.

See you soon at Phoenix!
