Make a detailed
plan for your
garden design

Vegetables, Fruits & Herbs: How to grow your own healthy, edible garden

Start your garden on the right footage! If you're a new gardener, stick to a small area before branching out
— 100 sq. ft. (or 9 sq. m.) is a great size.

Proper planning makes maintenance easier and gives your produce a chance to thrive. Every plant has its needs and responds differently to sun exposure.

Draw a rough sketch of your dream garden, including any structures or pathways. If you want an
outdoor dining set or a raised garden, marking them helps to visualize available space.

Pay attention to parts of your garden with the most sun throughout the day. Most fruits and veggies need at
least six hours of direct sunlight. Keep in mind that the sun can also shine differently as the seasons change.

Vegetables — they're gorgeous for your garden and good for you! From cage planters to soil gardens, there are plenty of places for your plants. Go ahead and mix it up, from vibrant red tomatoes to leafy kale. Examples of easy veggies to grow are chard, beans, and cucumbers.

Looking for an extra kick to your meal? No sweat! With 18 varieties, you can't go wrong with our peppers! They pack a spicy punch, so check the plant tag for your heat level, from mild to extra hot.

For maintenance, remember to work in fresh soil and fertilizer. This will help to increase soil fertility and prevent disease.

Always on the lookout for sweet, healthy snacks? Fruit trees and bushes can satisfy your craving!

Tempt yourself with irresistible apples, crisp pears, juicy plums, and more! Our high-quality fruit trees are selected strains of certified, virus-free plants. Self-fertile and self-sterile varieties are available, see
our Nursery Lookbook for more details.

If you're living in a condo or apartment, you don't need a backyard garden. Save space by adding fruit bushes
to containers or planters! You can also have it all with a berry bowl — a mix of four different berries in one pot
— perfect for your patio or balcony.

Trendy foodies love pineberries, a modern take on heirloom white strawberries with a pineapple flavour!
Cherryberries are also popular, blooming as white flowers in May and transforming into a dark, fragrant
red in June.

Use fresh herbs to
build a lovely
container garden

Vegetables, Fruits & Herbs: How to grow your own healthy, edible garden

Make your own container garden for your kitchen windowsill, or outdoors by the grill under plenty of sun.
Your tastebuds will thank you!

Go for durable, lightweight plastic containers or planters. After you've planted, soak the soil thoroughly.
To help your edibles flourish, don't forget to water and fertilize regularly!

For large containers, try mixing herbs alongside fruit trees or flowers. Herbs help to keep pests away while adding some excitement to your arrangement. A bigger planter also offers more room for roots to deepen
and grow.

Visit your nearest Garden Centre for our collection of Canadian-grown herbs as well as other popular
selections for basil, rosemary, and more! You can also find more inspiration in our Nursery Lookbook!

There you have it! Keeping up your own garden can be fun, simple, and appetizing all at once! Now that
you've gotten a taste, follow us on social and show us your gardening photos. We'd love to see your own
unique designs!
