Are you one of those people who love to have plants in the home and garden, but can’t for the life of you remember to water them? If you are someone who is having trouble remembering to water your plants, we have the answer for you. Try something from our splendid selection of cacti and succulents – nature’s answer for the forgetful waterer.
Of course given our name, you can guess that Jade Plants are our specialty. Come and see our pride and joy – a spectacular Jade that is over 50 years old, stands over 5 feet tall, and flowers every December. By popular demand, we’ve rapidly expanded our selection of cacti and succulents. We’re finding an increasing number of clients want cacti and succulents for outside in gardens and to plant in patio pots. Cacti and succulents can take the heat and are very drought tolerant, thereby minimizing summer garden maintenance. At Jade Gardens we carry a wide variety of cacti and succulents for the desert lover in you!
Cacti and succulents require full sun, sandy well-drained soil, and “occasional” water and fertilizer. Come and choose from the many varieties of crassulas, aeoniums, etc.
Or try our pre-planted containers for your deck. Cacti and Succulents are the low maintenance alternative to annuals and perennials. Although most of our cacti and succulents will need to come in to survive our harsh southern Ontario winters, we do even have some winter hardy succulents and cacti, which means, yes you can leave these ones outside all year long!
We’ve also been able to work with many bridal parties to arrange for cacti and succulents as wedding favours. If this is of interest to you, please call the store to discuss. Prices vary for volume purchases.
Below is a list of cacti and succulents that we propagate here at Jade Gardens, you’ll almost always find them in stock. Even though we are prolific growers of cacti and succulents, inventory varies and it is always a good idea to call and confirm availability if you are looking for a specific specimen (even one on our list below).
