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.

Abundant herbs, annuals and perennials

We’ve been able to catch up a bit and have made more of our herbs and annuals available on our online store. We also have a wonderful selection of perennials and tropicals, as well as shrubs, roses, and trees, and much more.

Thank you to everyone for shopping with us this year and understanding the pressures that we and other garden centres have been under as everyone has turned to their gardens!

New season, new products

We continue to expand our opening hours as the season advances. We’re now open Tues-Sat from 9 till 5, and Sun from 10 till 4.

We’re well stocked with seeds, soils and mulches, grass seed, garden accessories, annuals, and more!

New in this year: Vegepods, the self-contained raised garden beds!

Online orders

When ordering online, please be aware that we can hold your items for up to one week (7 days); we just don’t have the space to hold things for longer.

Thank you for planning your gardening season with us!

The 2019 garden season is almost here

Get ready for it! Yes, spring is on its way after this long winter.

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.

Carp Garden Centre and the 2019 season

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

Spring 2018

With the days getting longer and warming temperatures coming, we hope you are as anxious to start working in your garden again as much as we are.

We have lots of exciting things planned this year at the garden centre.  This year our official opening date will be Wednesday, May 2.  The opening date is a hint to our exciting first change this year: we will be open more days  this season . The Garden Centre will now be open from Wednesday to Sunday each week. Hopefully you will be able to take advantage of our extended hours.

Another change this year is our logo. We wanted to create a new logo that is reflective of our improvements and the growth we have made of the past two years and for our plans in the future.

A Growing Selection

Each year we try to offer a better selection of plants and garden products then the year before and this year will be no different. We will still be offering a selection of summer bulbs, flower/vegetable seeds, and grass seed, as well as a good selection of annuals, perennials, shrubs and trees, as well as soil amendments.

Even More Evergreens!

The garden centre will also be carrying a wider selection of evergreen trees and shrubs than we have in the past. We are excited to be able to offer our customers a variety of interesting and special plants from a well know and highly regarded grower. Hopefully you will be able to find that special evergreen for your garden this year.

NEW! Garden Furnishings & Accents

We have also found a premier designer, manufacturer and distributor of fine garden accents this year that we are very excited to offer our customers. We will be carrying a selection of garden benches, statuary, and bird baths made of high quality cast stone in a wide range of styles. There is something special waiting for your or even some great gift ideas for that special gardener you know.

NEW! Gardening Workshops

We are also finalizing plans for some fun and creative workshops this year and hope you will be able to join us as the dates become available.  If you also have ideas for seminars or workshops you would be interested in please let us know.

Gift Certificates

And don’t forget we do offer gift certificates in denominations of your choice.

We will keep you up to date as things happen during the season and we hope you will come and pay us a visit or two this year.
