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....

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!

Now that our store ‘HOBBS’ is (sadly) gone from Kerrisdale, we are offering lots of the same lines of Christmas ornaments  at the nursery. These little mice are all handmade, one at a time, out of felt. Each one is slightly different and has a personality all its own. They measure about about 4.5″ tall and sell for  $12.95 each. They are unbreakable, and nice and light for mailing.

Also made out of felt, these whimsical gnomes measures 5.5″ long and can hang from trees or twigs indoors.  Each one is a bit different . They sell for $10.00 each, and can also stand on their hand-carved wooden feet, if you prefer.

I also thought these cute little houses (below) were quite special. They are made entirely out of real cinnamon bark and smell terrific !!  Put a battery operated votive candle inside them (never put a real candle in them) to create a charming glow . the smaller houses sell for $30.00 each, and come in three styles. The bigger houses sell for $40.00 and $50.00 depending on size. They will last forever, and would make a terrific hostess gift idea. The largest size is 6″ x 4″ x 8″ tall, the smallest is 3″ x 3″ x 6″ .

Another group of ornaments we are happy to have this year are the ‘brushy’ animals .  There are North American species like racoons,and squirrels, and also African ‘Safari’ types like lions, elephants and giraffes. Prices range from $8.95 to $12.95 each .
