Garden Centres Toronto

The top 10 garden centres in Toronto

Garden centres in Toronto will help you develop your green thumb. Every great urban gardener will tell you that sourcing your plants and gardening supplies from a quality supplier is key to your planting success.

So what makes a good garden centre? A few key ingredients are imperative; a large selection of plants and/or other gardening essentials, helpful and knowledgeable staff, and a well-organized store, so even novice gardeners can find what they're looking for.

Here are my picks for the top garden centres in Toronto.

East End Garden Centre

This full service garden centre bursts onto the sidewalk with an array of seasonal plants and accessories. In addition to annuals, perennials, plants, trees, shrubs, there's every type of gardening gear you could possibly think of. 

East of Eliza

A traditional florist shop with a hidden secret garden centre, East of Eliza is perfect for finding that pretty little something for a special event or a permanent fixture in your garden oasis. They're known for their whimsical approach to planter boxes and floral arrangements.

Davenport Garden Centre

The seasonal garden centre at Davenport and Dupont and on Bayview opens up shop every spring. Here you'll find annuals, perennials, shrubs, pots, planters, herbs and vegetables.

Fiesta Farms

You can do your grocery shopping and gardening all in one place. What more could you want? The garden centre is open seasonally and boasts a large selection of vegetables and herbs.

Plant World

If you live in the west end and are in need of a gardening fix, this is the place to be. With five acres of retail space, and year round greenhouses, this store truly has everything your green thumb is itching for.

Woodhill Garden Centre

In operation since 1976, this Thornhill garden centre offers a variety of garden products and services. The prices here are generally a little cheaper than the average garden store, and there's a wide selection of annuals, perennials, trees, shrubs and vines available. 

Homeland

The family run business in East York has been in operation since 1974. They specialize in organic garden soils as well as a variety of landscaping materials. 

Evergreen Garden Market

The garden centre found at Evergreen Brick Works has one of Toronto’s widest selection of Ontario native flowers, plants and trees. They also carry a variety of handmade garden tools, garden furniture, planters and gardening books.

Grow It All

As their name suggests, this store on Geary Avenue will help you "grow it all" using hydroponic methods. They carry a wide range of starter kits and can help you grow tomatoes, peppers, herbs, flowers and mushrooms in a variety of unique and visually interesting arrangements.

Sheridan Nurseries

Boasting a number of locations within Toronto and the GTA, Sheridan Nurseries is one of the most popular garden suppliers. Shop massive selections of annuals, perennials, bulbs, and specialty plants. They also offer custom design services for planters, containers and hanging baskets.
