Our Catalog

Dear Grower,

 We thank you for your support over the past 38 years and look forward to meeting your plant needs in 2018 and beyond.

We have product available from approximately April 15 to June 15th, please contact us before placing an order if you’re interested outside of these dates.  All of our plants are grown from foundation stock, our own as well as stock from other sources, in soil fumigated at the recommended labeled rate under carefully controlled conditions. All plants are inspected by professionals from the Nova Scotia Department of Agriculture and from Perennia.

We pack our strawberry plants in bundles of 25, we try to allow an extra 4% per 1000 plants for packing errors. Raspberry canes and asparagus crowns are packed in bundles of 10. Blackberry canes and rhubarb crowns are sold individually. Our nursery stock is available from the first of April through to early June. However, no order will be held after June 1, 2018, unless it has been paid in full.

Special Note: If you are coming to pick up strawberry plants at the nursery be sure to bring something to cover them with, to protect them from the sun. When plants thaw out too quickly it can cause damage to the crowns

PLEASE NOTE: We guarantee satisfaction but cannot be held liable in any way for more than the purchase price of the plants. We cannot be held liable for order lost or damaged in transport due to improper address or shipping delays. If you are not satisfied with the plants you receive, contact us immediately as all claims must be in by the first of July. Unfortunately at this time, we are unable to ship small orders of plants into the United States. For any questions related to our order form, quantities, and placing an order please contact us.

Shipping: We ship by Canada Post or Midland Transport, we are unable to ship via Purolator or by air. Please contact us for further information.

Visitors are always welcome. Our nursery is located in Lakeville, NS.

 

May you have a healthy and prosperous 2018
