We will also be at the Compost Ed Center Winter Plant Sale on August 8th.

1015 Balmoral Rd
We accept cash, credit, on-the-spot etransfer or cheque.
Online Ordering and Pick Up We are unable to offer any advance ordering for pick-up or delivery at this time. If you’re unable to come to our nursery in person, we recommend using our up-to-date PLANT LIST to see what we have and then ask a neighbour or friend come down with your list. For those who don’t have someone to ask for help we encourage making a post for assistance on the Facebook group COVID-19 Coming Together. This is a local volunteer group started by helpful Victorians wanting to assist people who are in quarantine with errands.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic we are taking the following precautions:
1. Social Distancing: We will allow only 4 people into the nursery at any one time to allow for safe distancing. We ask that you browse the plant list in advance so you have an idea of what you want.
2. Safe Site: Fortunately we are out doors. We are disinfecting areas of contact regularly. There is a hand washing and hand sanitation station that we will be asking customers to use before entering site.
3. Payment Options: We take cash, cheque, credit card or e-transfer on the spot from your smart phone. We currently prefer credit card, as we’re able to disinfect our machine and would like to minimize contact with our cashier as much as possible. Other payment options will not be turned down.
5. Send a Friend: If your at higher risk, have a cold, or are in quarantine, stay home. We will do our best to get plants to you! We encourage you, if possible to make a list of what you want from our plant list just below and ask a friend or neighbour to pick up for you. At this time we are unable to offer deliveries or pick-up orders.
About the Edible Nursery
As part of our mission to increase access to healthy food, we have established an Edible Nursery where we grow and sell a variety of annual and perennial vegetables, herbs and fruits for the backyard and community gardener. We believe strongly that providing hardy, vigorous plants to Victoria’s thriving gardening community is an important piece in the local food security puzzle.
We grow the widest variety vegetable, herb and edible flowers that we can in our small space, and every year we try something new! If there’s a plant that you think we should be growing, please get in touch and let us know. We’d love to give it a try if we haven’t already.
All of our plants are grown on-site at our Mason St farm, using the tried & true methods of good potting soil, organic amendments, and careful attention.
We pride ourselves on selling plants that are healthy and hardened off. If we sell it, you can plant it.
At the Mason St. Edible Nursery we want to support your community project! If you are local project with a social mission, and could use some healthy discounted plant starts, please get in touch with us. We’d love to see what we can do to help you get an abundant harvest. Please contact us for more information.
