Path to toolshedWell, the weather has delayed things in our garden again this year but, thankfully, not as badly as in 2017.

So, this year (2018), our garden and small nursery will be open on Saturdays and Sundays through May and June. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

We sincerely welcome visitors to our garden. Many people have told us it is a lovely place to bring their friends and family, as a part of the Comox Valley worth seeing. There is no admission charge to visit our garden.

We do try to accommodate other people’s schedules, especially since we are only open on Saturdays and Sundays…the two days of the week on which we can guarantee we are here. So…if our Open Days noted below do not fit into your schedule, please contact us to arrange a suitable alternate day. We are flexible, but do appreciate if you would please phone or email ahead to make arrangements.
