“Earth laughs in flowers.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
So, in search of Earth’s laughter, we visited Patio Gardens on West Saanich Road and we found it in spades!
The vibrant colours of flowers and greenery can uplift any spirits, particularly as daylight hours shrink.
The owner, Yvonne, has been gardening for more than a couple of decades. In earlier days the business was mostly cut flowers. Now the specialty is hanging baskets and container gardening, suitable for patios and decks, indoor containers and anywhere you’d want to have live greenery or a garden feature.
And in our moderate west coast climate, water garden features can run year-round!
Patio Gardens features Christmas plantings right now, so there are lots of poinsettias and greenery. In a spacious classroom setting, floral and gardening workshops are offered, and wreath-making is a popular one right now.
