Gardening is the art
that uses flowers
and plants as paint,
and soil and sky as canvas.
We are told that walking into From The Potting Shed is like walking into a photograph reminiscent of an 18th Century European Potting Shed – but with a contemporary twist! It captures the love of the garden, personal creativity and friendship. It’s magical – like food for the soul!
Under the full moon in 1921, just after his return from war, my grandfather proposed to my grandmother in her garden. I have romanticized about this my entire life. It has inspired and influenced my work as a designer to create beautiful wedding flowers that have that “well tossed together” garden flower look about them.
We do not have a catalogue – never will – each wedding is customized to suit each couple. We encourage you to bring in your bits of fabric, pinterest photos, & colour chips so that we can dream together to make your own photo worthy flowers.
We’ll even make it right at your final consult – which we have come to call your “Floral Party”

At our Sheds (stores) we follow the garden seasons. In the Spring you can expect to find bulbs, tulips, pussy willows, garden gear etc. Fresh herbs, peonies, roses, hostess gifts, garden décoratives in the Summer. Sunflowers, grapevine, everlasting wreaths, dried lavender from Provence in Autumn. Amaryllis, evergreens, pomegranates and fabulous gifts in the mid Winter! Always changing, always current!
We’re not afraid to share our secrets! Throughout the year we offer workshops, festivals and luncheons on floral arts and gardening. Just like Grandma taught us. We’re passing on the spade!
Our workshops make for a great corporate team building activity and are a terrific option to an office party! Bring your mother, client or friend! An escape from fast-lane living!
Visit our herb market! Open every year from the May long weekend to Thanksgiving. We feature over 50 varieties including topiaries and hard to find herbs! O’natural – great for balcony gardeners and chefs!
Choose from one of ours or bring in your own container and let us help you create your own custom culinary garden – a moveable feast!
This is a popular corporate gift for the holidays, closing sale or incentive program. Call us to find out more!
