*COVID-19 Update: We remind everyone to maintain a safe, two metre distance apart at all times. Our nursery, gardens, our main shop, our main greenhouse, as well as our Perennial, Hosta and Ornamental Grasses greenhouses are all OPEN. For your convenience we have installed a portable toilet on the property. Please note: now that we are open, most of our customers prefer to shop in person. However, if you do not feel comfortable and you know what you want, you can still place an order with us by e-mail (briarpatch@eastlink.ca) or Facebook message, pay for your order by e-transfer or credit card, and arrange pickup of your plants. Also please note we do not ship or deliver any orders. Thank you for your patience. Stay safe!

We invite you to browse our extensive 2020 catalogue of plant stock, below. Plant group lists are in .pdf format. Please note our stock lists are updated several times during the season.  Also, the process is manual, and although we strive to keep them up to date, plant quantities listed on line are not always accurate. If you are coming to our nursery, from any great distance, please contact us to make sure the item you are looking for is still available. Thank you!
