A Day In the Countryside

Today The Yard Therapist went rambling around the countryside in search of a P.nepalensis ‘Miss Willmott’.  After checking at a few garden centres I found myself just outside the  Calgary southern city limits at Countryside Landscaping and Garden Center in well, the countryside.  From the moment I parked in the lot I knew I was in for something special.  Now this garden center doesn’t just sell plants, it shows you how a lush and gorgeous garden is created and what aImage joy for the senses it can be. From the entrance to the perennial shop it is a one beautiful example after another of what YOUR garden can be like with proper thought and care.  Charming courtyards and a luxe outdoor kitchen, of which they would happily design for you, along shade dappled paths remind you of why you garden or why you would want to in the first place.

Kim has a special talent for terrariums and they have a full stock of essential items in-store.  She let the cat out of the bag that they will be running workshops on this popular revival of a Victorian indoor plant display coming soon.  You can learn more about Countryside at www.csgcl.com/.  I recommend you drive out and take a look around.  And by the way, they had my ‘Miss Willmott’!  I had given up hope!ImageImageImageImage
