  • Sunday – 10 to 4
  • Monday – 10 to 4

Perennials for Sun, Shade or in Between

We have so many gorgeous perennial plants to choose from this season. We have sun loving perennials, shade loving and shade tolerant varieties, as well as perennials that will do well with sun and shade.

Get a feel for what we have ahead of time right here, with the photo gallery in this post, or check out the options we have listed on our online store.

The garden centre is calmer these days, with many folks away for part of the summer, so it’s a great time to come in for a stroll around. We’d be happy to give you advice on the best selections for your garden.

New tropicals at Carp Garden Centre

We’ve had so much fun expanding our line of tropicals over the last couple of years, which are incredibly popular.

We love to share the latest arrivals, including the ones pictured here. Venus Flytrap and String of Pearls are both kind of amazing, but they are all stunners.

We share a good sample of our inventory through an A-Z list of tropical plants we typically carry at our west Ottawa garden centre right here on our website, or you can always browse the current selection online.

Our greenhouses are bursting!

Our greenhouses are simply bursting with a huge range of spring planters and hanging baskets. If you don’t have yours yet, you’ll want to come in!

A reminder about shopping online

Our inventory is constantly growing and it’s a challenge to list everything online.

If you don’t see what you want, please contact us or just come in to browse! There is so much waiting for you here at Carp Garden Centre.
