Garden Works

GardenWorks has 10 locations throughout BC, and day two of the tour took us to the Vancouver Island store, where merchandising is the operation’s bread and butter. In addition to its already creative displays, GardenWorks uses a tremendous amount of point-of-purchase material, like the Rock Stars line, to make the plants really stand out.

GardenWorks also partners with local artisans to offer a unique mix of art and d├ęcor for its customers. One of the artists creates beautiful mosaics using pieces of broken china (pictured). The mosaics are durable enough to stand up to the elements and can be left outside in the garden, even during the winter (which tends to be pretty mild on this temperate island).
