Could it be that dreams do come true?
When artistic talent, sweat, business savvy and encyclopedic
plant knowledge are combined, it seems they do....

Southlands Nursery is a walk-in fantasy,
where beauty always comes before profit.

STORE INFO

Established in 1991, and located in a charming 'equestrian pocket' on Vancouver's upscale
westside, this unique area called Southlands is a horse friendly enclave right in the city.
Large lots and small acreages house many stables, and it is not unusual to see horses and their
riders go by our gates. With delicious free coffee always on hand, many people tell us that they
come down to the nursery just to experience the beautiful atmosphere.
We hope you will visit soon!

According to all my grade school report cards, I never stop speaking!

Here is where I rant/ share/ proselytize about whatever I think is
beautiful/ interesting/ semi-important....

Thomas Hobbs own hybrids (and other fabulous varieties) are available in
limited numbers. Hybridizing daylilies has become an absolute obsession....
using cutting edge parent plants from the world's top breeders.

Half the fun is in naming them!

BOOKS & PRESS

The only thing I love more than gardening is sharing that passion with others.
I've had the pleasure of writing 2 books and have been featured in a number of professional
horticultural and gardening magazines. For the past 16 years I've also worked in television on
GlobalBC's Saturday morning news 'Gardening with Thomas Hobbs' segments. The nursery has
been featured on virtually every gardening show including 'The Victory Garden', 'Martha Stewart'
and 'Recreating Eden'. We were even home to 'The Orchid Nazi' on the hit TV show The X Files!

THE ROSES ARE READY ! BEST SELECTION IS NOW

Filed under: Uncategorized — yodiehead @ 10:47 pm

012

 

We have hundreds of freshly potted rose bushes for sale – right now.  With two out of three of our rose suppliers going out of business last year, there are gaps in rose availability that will never be filled. The downturn in the U.S. economy is far reaching and has devastated the nursery industry. No new home construction= no new planting. Fortunately, Canada has fared a bit better and we are looking forward to a great Spring season !

 

You may want to look up each variety online, to see pictures and get specific information .  Currently in stock are the following varieties, but all are subject to prior sale and not guaranteed to be here for your arrival. The best selection is always in February and March. If you don’t see the name of the rose you want, we do not have it and cannot get it this year. The exception is  David Austin Roses , which are coming soon !
