Moving into Fall

Hello, so good to have you back. It has been wonderful seeing so many of our regular customers back in the store this first week. All the busy bees are back from vacation and the store is getting fuller every day with the rich and gorgeous colours of fall. If you were in on Sept 6th it already looks like a different store again so come by for another visit.

The staff at West Coast are an integral part of the service we offer here. And a bonus for us staff members is the community and time we can enjoy together. For our spring year end party Gracie decided we must have a tea party and everyone was required to wear dresses and hats and to bring their own tea cup. Here are a couple fun photos of our lovely staff!! 

Tea party was hosted by Deb of our planter design team, she has a beautiful home and garden

Grace brought this tea cup planter from retail specially for Jason :)
Summer fun behind us, lets get back to Fall!!!

Lets start outside...

Even with the warm weather we had last week we have received calls asking for our pansy hanging baskets. We currently have pansy coco baskets and pansy moss baskets available with pansy blossom bags on the way

Coco Pansy Basket $29.99
 And of course our design team has been putting together some gorgeous fall containers in all size and price ranges.

We have also brought in a lot of fresh new nursery stock. We only buy in premium items from select growers to provide you with the best. There are a lot of shrubs currently in flower for fall and showing some beautiful colours. (once established hardy hibiscus flowers get even bigger and are a similar size to tropical hibiscus flowers, first two photos)
