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....

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!

Antique Prints – real ones !

Filed under: Uncategorized — yodiehead @ 7:36 pm

We have a collection of original antique prints of nests, shells and tropical scenes for sale. These are all over 100 years old  and were pages of beautiful books at one time.  The nest prints are from a book called  BIRDS OF THE UNITED STATES,  by Thomas G. Gentry, published in 1882.  Each print is $50.00, unframed. What is shown here may be only a part of the actual print but is actual size for the space it occupies on a normal computer screen .

I thought these prints  would be great framed, as a group, in a kitchen, sunroom or even a bedroom. They would also work  well (photocopied) as decoupage for glass plates , print transfers onto fabric for cushions, T-shirts, pillowcases ….. lots of  projects . They would also look amazing enlarged to poster size as wall art !

016
These prints measure 9.25″ x 11.75″, unmatted, unframed. We only have ONE of each ! They are not ‘out’ at the nursery  (to protect them), so ask one of the staff if you come here to see or buy any. They can be mailed safely, to anyone,  anywhere . Shipping wouldn’t cost much, but would be extra.

We have a pair of these exotic tropical foliage pages from a French book. They are gorgeous ! Each measures 6.25″ x  9.75″ .  As with the nest prints, they would look incredible blown up to poster size (at Kinko’s), or framed as they are now.  Each page is $50.00 .

002
I also love shell prints. I chose this one as the most beautiful one of the bunch . It measures 6″ x 9.5″ and is also$50.00 .
