A Green Thumbs Up

The Natural Gardener gives green thumbs a hand

It’s that time of year again! With autumn fast approaching, there is no better moment to get your gardens ready for spring’s full bloom – and The Natural Gardener is here to help!

“September is when people should really start doing cleanup, and plant their spring bulbs,” says Bob Tuckey (pictured), store owner and certified Master Gardener.

The Natural Gardener can assist you with both! From Burgon & Ball Trowels to Felco Secateurs to their aluminum telescopic shrub rake, they have all you need to turn your backyard into a lush landscape.

“We pride ourselves on offering a wide selection of plants from your favourites to the more unusual, and everything in between,” says Bob.  “Bulbs like Tulip Jackpots, Tulip Flaming Spring Greens and Allium Silver Springs are a must-have this year!”

So get down to The Natural Gardener to get your garden growing! They even have plants to work into your home décor for the winter and move outside when summer hits! Try outdoor paintings by Brad Dinwoodie, ceramic Japanese lanterns by Lynn Johnson, or hand-blown glass Hummingbird feeders by Lawrence Ruskin. Pair these décor items with garden furniture like benches, patio tables, chairs and loungers made from acadia wood.

And for those of you that are worried the winter blues will make your patio furniture an instant eyesore, Bob has a plan for you: “Just use bamboo and evergreen grasses for interest, and then fill your planters with pansies – we’ve got it all here!”

There is no time like the present to make your future garden a heavenly haven. Stop by The Natural Gardener in Vancouver at 4376 West 10th Avenue to cover all your gardening needs.
