(Revised 22 November 2014)
Following the most severe winter of my gardening experience, 2014 garden season at Garden Canadensis was full of disappointments…..mature conifers and ornamental trees destroyed or decapitated by the ice storm, total failure of flowering cherry and dogwood blossoms, Acers not returning or severely damaged by voles under the snow cover, etc…etc. However, we will keep planting regardless of whether mother nature like it or not.
Here are a few glimpses of what’s left.

Where is Lake Shaukou? (You may ask). See here, and here.

You can still see our 2013 season here.

    Surfing the net for my Pinterest boards I came across your garden website. It looks stunning and I was touched by the desciption of your dog. I would love to have some of your heucherella’s. Difficult to find in Holland. Keep up the good work!

      Thank you for your kind comments.
      I am surprised to hear that Heucherellas are hard to find in Holland. Usually, ornamental plants availability in Canada is far worse than all other Western countries.

    Beautiful garden. Thanks for stopping by our garden centre.
    Sorry about the loss of your dog, he looks like he lived an amazing life roaming your garden. See you in the spring!

      Hi Mehdi,
      It was great to meet a nursery operator who has good taste in plants. We will definitely be back to visit your garden centre again in the spring.
