Garden Import... Where Quality and Unique Plants Meet

Agapanthus 'Blue Heaven'
Amorphophalus Bulbifer
My path of horticulture has led me to many great gardens, garden centres, and mail order companies, all over North America.  One company that has impressed me for more than 20 years is Garden Import.  Garden Import is a family run business in its 30th season.

Garden Import's quality and selection gives me something to look forward to every year.  This year is no exception! Its no secret that I like plants that are unusual.  Plants that you don't find in every home or garden are the ones that capture my attention and keep my interest in horticulture growing.

Clematis 'Princess Kate'
Bessera Elegans
Garden Import carries quality rare and unusual plants, seeds, and bulbs suitable for indoor, outdoor, container, and garden plantings.  The Customer service is excellent and the website is very informative and user friendly. Each plant on the website is listed with growing tips, size, colour and condition requirements.

From the blue Agapanthus, to the yellow Clivia, the pink Clematis, to the black Bat Flower there's sure to be something that catches your eye.
Hellebore 'Amethyst Gem'
I will most definitely be placing an order with Garden Import this spring;  including the plants pictured on this blog.

Try something new this year in your containers or in your garden, and plant something that will be sure to be a conversation piece for family and friends to admire.

Be sure to check out their website, and sign up for their email updates.
