Stopped in at one of my favourite garden shops last week! Creek Side Garden Décore is located in Dawson Creek on 17th Avenue. It has been officially dubbed as the Peace Country’s “One Stop Pond Shop”. They are open year round and what a treat it is to stop in on a wintry day for a wander through their greenhouse filled with water features, oodles of succulents, pond plants, enormous koi fish and even a turtle named Myrtle! In the huge main shop you will find all kinds of unique décor for your garden.
I picked up a couple inexpensive cold frames for getting a jump on the season, as well as a boot scraper (for all that mud in our near future!) and a cute little tin watering can perfect for showering seedlings.
Owners Frank and Arlene are always friendly, welcoming and full of great ideas for creating unique yards. You can follow them on facebook or check out their website for all kinds of pictures and ideas.
Here is a recent example of just some of the great décor on offer (photo from Creek Side Garden Decore facebook page)
Last year I bought this “living wall” picture frame planter from Arlene and Frank. It would look great on a wall (inside or out) but I propped it on an easel in the garden…
Here are a couple arrangements Arlene made that I snapped photos of last summer…
Every year I swoon over all the water features and would love to have irrigation put in (another service they offer). One day!
They are having a spring sale on now with all kinds of discounts throughout the store so if you’re in Dawson Creek and in need of a spring fix (and who isn’t!) drop in and take a look around. You’ll be glad you did.
