Christmas Shop Open & Wreath Making Workshops

We’re so delighted to have our Christmas Store fully open for you. We have seasonal decor of the living kind (pointsettias, amaryllis, potted Christmas trees and full size trees) and many items that you can decorate with year after year.

A wonderful time out

A stroll around Carp Garden Centre at this time of year is quite magical. Get a bite to eat and a hot drink at Eldon’s Pantry or Alice’s Village Cafe, then stop by for a relaxing visit.

Our greenhouses are bursting with red, green, and golden hues, and the giant trees that ring the property create a quiet space away from the frenzy in the rest of our lives.

Our shop is full of Christmas and winter themed decor; you’re sure to find something that’s perfect for your home.

Every weekend we offer our guided wreath making workshops (2.5 hours). Bring a group of friends or your work team, or just come for you.

We’re open Tuesday through Saturday, 10 to 4 and look forward to seeing you soon!

Potted Christmas Trees are here

We have just received an order of live, potted Christmas trees, and they are super sweet. Enjoy them for the holidays, then plan to plant next spring.

They tend to be two to three feet in height. We have White Spruce, Norway Spruce, and Blue Spruce.

Come in for yours while we have stock!

Christmas Wreath Workshop Booking

Our popular wreath making workshops are back for multiple dates in late November and December this year!

Workshop package includes creating one wreath using fresh evergreen boughs, adornments with cones and bow. Upgrade options are available such as Magnolia leaves, dogwood twigs, and premium bows.

The workshop will involve a 2.5 hour (approximate) workshop, light refreshments will be served. Morning and afternoon slots available. $75 per person.

Workshops are held in our greenhouse space, and although the area is heated, please come dressed in warm, layered clothing so you can adjust as necessary. Evergreen sap can be sticky, please dress accordingly and consider not wearing your best attire!

Choosing trees for your lot – Red Oak

Native to North America, the Red Oak is a stunning shade tree suitable for larger lots and rural settings.

Red Oak or Quercus ‘Rubra’ will reach mature height of 75’ tall and width of 40’-60 wide with a life expectancy of 150 to 500 years.

Leaves are a deep glossy green in the summer and change to a beautiful red in the fall.

These trees are great for encouraging wildlife; its acorns are an important winter food source for squirrels, deer, wild turkeys, and several songbirds.

The Red Oak prefers a soil that has moderate moisture and is well drained.
