Lochside Nursery is a wholesale nursery located approximately 7 miles from Victoria in convenient Central Saanich. Designed with the garden contractor in mind, our wholesale prices are competitive. The nursery also welcomes the DIY general public. How-ever, our "non-commercial/retail" prices are too low to support any customer service. We recommend that you do your own research before coming to the nursery, or utilize our free Wi-Fi while on site (make sure you bring your smart phone or iphone). If you are looking for full service and answers to your gardening /landscaping questions then you will be happier at a retail nursery or garden centre.
So...bring a list, some muscle, a large truck and have fun saving lots of money!
The nursery is now entering its eighteenth year of production. Careful attention has been given to selection of a wide range of commonly used woody ornamentals and perennials. Most of our staff are Certified Horticulturists and take personal interest in plants and the gardening community. They have worked hard over the past years to develop a varied inventory of plants and take pride in their accomplishments.
Check the above link for our Monthly Picks. It will be continually upgraded as possible. Also, we have complied a list of deer resistant plants that should be of help when selecting plantings - especially in areas where deer are know to graze. We are featuring a Newsletter this year that, hopefully, will provide interesting industry comments and prespectives on plants for the local environment - click on the link above.
