It’s the most wonderful time of the year!!! Although we carry a large variety of fresh potted plants and cut flowers all year long, I’m sure everyone agrees that we all really can’t wait for April to arrive and see that big red and white tent go up on the side of the building!
Our garden centre runs throughout the spring and summer, offering only the highest quality annual and perennial bedding plants, assorted pre-planted window boxes and containers, and not to mention, the best hanging baskets in all of Mississauga! On top of all that, we also have a massive selection of vegetable plants, including tomatoes in every shape, size, and colour you can imagine!
Although the beginning of the planting season is a little cool, there’s always something to brighten your urns or patio, after a long, dull winter! The pansies are the first to start and then everything gets into full swing from there!
You’ll see us morning, noon, and night outside stocking, moving, and watering our precious babies – if you’re lucky, you might even make it when one of us is in the middle of a conversation with one of the hostas!
When the summer is over, and the garden centre has winded down, the tent stays up as we prepare for the fall! Soon the garden centre will be full of crimson and rust coloured fall mums, flowering cabbage and kale, bales of hay, pumpkins, and gourds! Bring the kids by to pick out the perfect pumpkin from the best selection of pumpkins in town. Take their picture atop a bin of pumpkins or with one of the witches or goblins we employ for the day!!!
When Thanksgiving and Halloween are over, the days become colder and the snow begins to fall, sadly, the tent must come down. But, thankfully, inside the market is full of colour and cheer, as we prepare for Christmas! There is always a wonderful selection of poinsettias, available in an array of colours, such as red, white, pink, jingle bells, and maroon. There are holly plants, fresh wreaths, cedar boughs for decorating the entranceway, and festively decorated branches that sparkle and shine!
Why go to a florist, when you can swing by The Apple Market! We have beautiful, fresh cut flower arrangements for any occasion! Stop by for a Mother’s Day bouquet or a dozen red roses for your true love on Valentine’s Day!
