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.

Did you know that we have gift cards? You can purchase online or instore. They are the perfect gift for the gardener in your life!

The Autumn Collection is here!

The garden centre is a riot of colour for much of the year, but there is something special about the deeper, richer hues in the fall.

We’re fully stocked with everything you need to make a beautiful transition into fall at your home:

We have chrysanthemums, fall planters, corn stalks, witch’s pumpkins, gourds, and more!

Stop by to choose your favourites or shop online.

An update on ordering and pick-ups in 2020

Transitioning to online sales this year with curbside pickup has been a journey, and a very positive one. We’re delighted to find our customers so receptive to this method of operating, and we thank all of you who have purchased from us so far this season.

Order online for all of your gardening needs

Order online at shop.carpgardencentre.ca and we’ll arrange curbside pickup

After a short experiment with drop-in visits earlier this weekend, we’ve decided that the most responsible and effective way that we can serve you this season is through continuing to take your orders online and by phone, with contactless curbside pickup.

Going forward, our opening hours (found here and on our Google Business listing), will indicate when we are open for pre-arranged curbside pickup only.

We will continue to work to make this as easy as possible for you, with inventory updated daily, announcements about new inventory, and clear information about timing and details for picking up your orders.

We’re so excited about this gardening season too, and we want to be sure we can be here for you throughout the whole season.

Thank you for your support and understanding, and please know that we’re here to make the 2020 gardening season a productive and beautiful one.

Best wishes,

Jonathan & Tori and the Carp Garden Centre team

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.
