Spring Time News @ Brantim

Hello Gardening Enthusiasts,

As the sun begins to shine a little brighter and longer and the sap starts to run for maple syrup, Brantim Garden Centre is thrilled to welcome you to the vibrant season of spring! It’s time to start planning your garden’s awakening from their winter slumber and get ready to let your green thumbs flourish.

Here’s what’s sprouting up at our garden centre this season:

Fresh Arrivals

We have partnered with a new perennial shrub supplier from the Niagara Region that brings new offerings to our fruit tree & flowering shrubs. These will be available for sale in the greenhouse only and include:

  • 4 in 1 apple tree option. This is a great option for those who like variety but don’t have the room for multiple species of trees. Also, as an added bonus these trees do not need partner pollinator trees, as they self pollinate.
  • 3 in 1 blueberry shrub. This new variety has been grafted from 3 separate blueberry species that offer different flower-fruit times to extend production season.
  • Wichita Blue Upright Junipers – Very hardy evergreens that over-winter well in our area and will offer a great backbone to landscape features around your yard or property.

Annuals & Herbs

As always, we have a great selection of annuals, herbs & vegetables to choose from this season. Pre-order is available now on our website. Be sure to order early, so you get what you want.

Hanging Baskets

There’s no mistaking them, everyone knows a Brantim hanging basket! We have our traditional large and small hanging baskets available for sale online. High demand for hanging baskets over the past few years has called for us to introduce and grow new recipes for our large hanging baskets and we’re excited to be offering two new mixed petunia recipes and a large shade basket recipe this year both of which were tested last year and performed exceptionally. These beauties will ONLY be available for sale in the greenhouse.

Old Faithfuls

For those of you who have been faithful Brantim clients, we thank you so much for your support and we assure you we continue to grow and offer the large and small containers and window boxes that you know and love. We know your home just wouldn’t look the same this summer without these. There are many varieties to choose from, all available for pre-order online. Again, don’t wait because these are pop-u-lar and always sell out.

Greenhouse Opening

We’re busy in the greenhouse, plants are everywhere, although we can’t wait to see you, please don’t visit until we have everything ready. We invite you to shop online for pre-order and welcome you to visit the greenhouse in early May. Watch our website for details about our in-person greenhouse sale.

Stay up to date

As the growing season continues stay tuned to our social media for regular updates, and gardening tips and tricks from our experts in the greenhouse. From soil preparation to pest control, we’re here to help you navigate every step of your gardening journey.

Spring is a time of renewal and growth, and we’re thrilled to be your partner on this green-fingered adventure. Visit us at Brantim Garden Centre to explore all that spring has to offer and let’s make this season one to remember!

3 “P’s” for Home Gardeners

Prepare: Before planting, it’s crucial to prepare your soil to provide the best possible growing conditions for your plants. Testing your soil’s pH level can also help you determine if any adjustments are needed to create an optimal growing environment for your plants.

Plan: Decide what you want to plant and where you want to plant it. Consider factors such as sunlight, drainage, and soil type when choosing your planting locations.

Plant indoors: Get a head start on the growing season by starting seeds indoors for plants that require a longer growing period or are sensitive to cold temperatures.


Happy gardening!
