Come for the garlic festival, visit the garden centre!

As the season begins to wind down and we reach late summer, we vegetable gardeners are enjoying the fruits of our labours. The tomatoes are ripening, the cucumbers are ready to pickle, and most anticipated of all, the garlic is ready to harvest!

Many Carp locals know that nowhere celebrates this bountiful time better than the Carp Farmers’ Market. The annual Garlic Festival will be held at the Carp Fairground this coming weekend.

Delphiniums for Days!

Delphiniums are the stars of the early summer perennial border, popular for their massive, showy flower spikes that come in various shades of blue, purple, white, and pink. They add a vertical element to the garden and are sought after for their stunning blue colour which is often difficult to find in other perennial species.

Another benefit, the bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds love them!

Plant in full sun for the sturdiest stems, and dead heading will encourage re-blooming.

At the garden centre we are carrying a great selection of delphiniums in shades of intense blue, soft purple, and our favorite, a hard to find pink variety!

 

 

 

 

Raymond Evison Clematis

We just love flowers that make our customers go WOW! Raymond Evison Clematis is no exception, vines covered in blooms the size of your palm in gorgeous colours such as vibrant red, intense blue, and soft pink .

Raymond Evison started his horticultural career at the age of 15 and has spend the last 60 years breeding and developing award winning clematis.

This season we are carrying five varieties of his spectacular clematis including ‘Charmaine’, ‘Crystal Fountain’, ‘Empress’, ‘Josephine’, and ‘Rebecca’.

Spring 2019

It has been a slow start but spring has finally decided to arrive. Boy it is good to get out in the garden again!

This year at the garden centre we have expanded our annual program and are proud to offer not only a wider variety of annual plants and baskets, but we are also offering a small selection of Proven Winners annuals.

Those familiar with the Proven Winners line know that the goals of Proven Winners are to introduce the best, most unique, and high performing plants and we are thrilled to be able to offer a selection of their annuals with the hope of expending the selection in the years to come.

Some of the varieties we have include: Coleus ColorBlaze® Sedona Sunset™, Coleus ColorBlaze® Golden Dreams™, Petunia Supertunia® Picasso in Purple®, Euphorbia Diamond Frost®

The 2019 garden season is almost here

We’ll be opening our doors for the season on May 1st. We’ll be open Wednesday to Saturday from 9am to 5pm, and on Sundays from 10am to 4pm.

Please come out to welcome the season at Ottawa’s Carp Garden Centre and to choose the gardening supplies and accessories, seeds, plants, shrubs and trees that you need for your garden. We are here to help you select the right plants for your particular garden and vision.
