Tropical plants can be a stunning addition to your garden, but they won't survive long in our cold Niagara winters! Here are some tips for what to do when you bring your tropical plant inside this fall.
Flowers – Annuals & Perennials
We love flowers! And you're going to love the selection of both annual and perennial varieties that our garden centre offers to help Niagara residents create stunning gardens.
Annual flowers need to be planted each year, but give a blast of colour all season long until a hard frost comes. Annuals add the finishing touch to a landscape, and allow you to personalize your yard with choices of every colour of the rainbow.
At Country Basket Garden Centre, we make it easy for you to succeed with your flower beds and containers! Our staff is always available to guide you in choosing the right plants for the right spots. Take advantage of our expert tips so that your annuals will flourish.
A perennial is a herbaceous plant that thrives for three or more years. Perennials come in a variety of sizes, shapes and colours. By choosing your perennials carefully, you can have a garden full of colour from early spring to late fall.
Our staff are always happy to offer advice on which perennials will suit the growing conditions in your garden. We have perennial ground covers, those that are drought resistant, and some that prefer "wet feet".
Perennials are among the easiest plants to grow. Sun or shade, clay or loam, there is a perennial for almost all of your gardening needs.

Certain flowers act as defenders of the garden, promoting growth when planted with vegetables and herbs. The following is a collection of the top flowers you can use in your Niagara garden as companions for your other plants!
Did You Know?
Grasses give you great texture, form, colour, and motion in the wind. They make a wonderful background for flowers and are outstanding for dramatic groupings in difficult, sunny areas. Birds love grasses for nesting and eating the seeds. Practically the only care they need is cutting them down once a year in late winter.
