SWEET, SWEET SUMMER!
THERE'S A SWEET FRAGRANCE at EARTHBOUND these days...
the hectic pace that always dictates the beginning of July seems to gradually slow as the sun beams warm us. The tension of city and work and traffic unknots and our friends starting vacation begin to smile more, speak a little less quickly and take a little longer to notice the sometimes subtle beauty of the garden. We'd like to take all the credit at Earthbound, but truly, it's all about the valerian! But *phew*! Valerian STINKS - only if it's too close to your nose, otherwise the sweet, heady fragrance is almost intoxicating as it wafts on summer's easy breezes. I think the fragrance of valerian is responsible for much of the mythology about all the magical spells that take place in garden settings. The fairies and gnomes must be at work, tricking us into summer slumber while they weave their spells around us. So listen to Mother Nature (and the fairies!) kick back and relax - it's summer!
Enjoy the magic of each day.
SUMMER EVENTS ARE STARTING!
Earthbound Gardens, Greenhouses, and Gift Shop
Summer is here! and we're ready to see you!
Your Bruce Peninsula garden adventure awaits you here at Earthbound Gardens, beautiful downtown Red Bay!
Established in 1992, Earthbound Garden Centre offers visitors a unique garden shopping experience. Our family owned and operated Greenhouses and Garden Centre offer an eclectic selection of on-site grown plants and shrubs, organic garden supplies, and garden themed gifts for sale. From hand-crafting our soil mixtures to our ethical standards in the products we carry and the processes we use, we do everything with care to ensure the high quality of our plants. We are here to share our knowledge and our passion for growing plants with you!
We are known for our extensive selection of both Lilies and Daylilies. We specialize in both lilium bulbs and hemerocallis, offering many varieties to choose from, including Lily Trees (Orien-Pet), new Dwarf Lilies, and Double Kiss Lilies. Our lily greenhouse is a delight when in full bloom! Our daylily sales area and display beds have something blooming throughout the summer. Enjoy a tour through the touring garden and garden centre and choose some of your favourites to take home with you.
We continue to work tirelessly to create an amazing outdoor natural space for you to explore. Take a stroll and get inspired by our English garden, or stop to talk with one of our expert gardeners about our organic vegetable gardens, our native plant program or about the new varieties of Canadian hybridized daylilies. Come and start your day with Yoga in the garden, join us for a relaxing afternoon of music by local musicians, or enjoy a hands-on learning experience through one of our Wednesday workshops.
Our Events page will keep you up to date on the vast
array of events and workshops we offer throughout the year.
