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!

Get your garden started at Carp Garden Centre this weekend!

It’s time to get out and refresh your garden and there is no better time than the fast approaching May long weekend!

Perhaps you want to replace those trees or shrubs that did not make it through the winter, add some new plants to your perennial border, or brighten up your window boxes and planters with some bright annuals. Of course there is nothing like the taste of a fresh tomato still warm from the sun in your salad and perhaps you need some new seeds and planting stakes.

We have a great selection of plants, seeds, mulches and soils for all your gardening needs.

Even if you have no room for just one more plant, why not add a bird bath or a fountain to attract birds and butterflies to your yard this year? We have a range of high quality, unique cast stone products that will make your garden the best it’s ever been!

Come on out for a visit and discover our ever expanding selection of plants and garden supplies while also taking time to visit the Carp Farmers’ Market, Alice’s Village Cafe, and the delightful village of Carp.

May Long Weekend Hours:

Sat: 9-5  |  Sun: 10-4   |  Mon: 9-5
