Our Edible Nursery is open for the 2020 season. We plan to be open weekly from March 28th to June 27th, and are taking all precautions regarding COVID-19 in order to ensure our community can safely access our food & plants. Please read below for more information and check back regularly for updates.
Wednesday – Friday : 10 am – 6 pm
Saturday : 10 am – 2pm
1015 Balmoral Rd
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 below 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 everything we can 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, but we are working to investigate how to offer these options in a sustainable manner. Please check back or contact us for updates.
2020 Early Spring Plant List
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.
See our plant list from the 2017 season near the bottom of this page to get an idea of the range of plants we sell. 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.
From March to the end of June, our Edible Nursery is open every Wednesday – Friday from 10 am to 2 pm and Saturdays from 10 am to 2 pm. The entrance is at 1015 Balmoral Rd. You’ll also find us at the annual Compost Education Centre, which usually takes place in May.
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.
Each year we partner with the Victoria Seed Library to grow a selection of their favourite tomato, pepper and bean varieties. Our hope is that by providing these plants to our customers, we can encourage the growth of the seed-saving community in our region!
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.
