The Plant Place and The Saltbox Shoppe strive to be a unique one stop destination for all your gardening needs. Don’t settle for your garden to be ordinary or plain. Dare to be different, strive to be unique, and let us help you achieve a place where you can relax, and take a deep breath to enjoy color, fragrance, quality and texture.
In 1976, Mary and Marlow Crowston started The Plant Place. Today, the business continues to thrive as a family tradition with Linda and April Gregory. April has also incorporated her business The Saltbox Shoppe to merge hand in hand with The Plant Place.
The Plant Place features carefully hand selected bedding plants, hangers, container gardens, shrubs, ornamentals and a truly unique selection of perennials all hardy and chosen for this climate zone. We also offer custom container planting in your containers or wrought iron planters or our hand made tin or wood planters. Feel free to ask our knowledgeable and friendly greenhouse ladies to assist you in your selections.
The Saltbox Shoppe specializes in creating wonderful and whimsical birdhouses and one of a kind folk art, for home, garden, office and cottage. The Saltbox Shoppe strives to make products that are 100% “Canadian made” and realizes the importance of “green” using reclaimed antique building materials to construct unique pieces at affordable prices.
This year April and Linda are excited to introduce a selection of vintage garden gates, antique leaded glass windows, pillars as well as many more surprises.
Come stroll through the pathways of vibrant color, so rich that hummingbirds and butterflies cannot resist the temptation. Make that bare corner of your garden an artistic vista, with carefully thought out pieces of garden art and flowers of the highest quality. Wrought iron trellises, gates, obelisks and planters- a selection we have travelled for far and wide, and we promise can only be found here.
Keep a close watch for our semi-annual spring and fall open houses.
READY…. SET…. GROW…. IT’S TIME TO PLANT!
