Welcome to Erikson’s Daylily Gardens and Perennials

 
 

FALL 2017


First, thank you for everyone who came to visit this year and we hope you have spread the word that we will be open five days a week again next year!


For fall and winter, we only have a few days left to be open for fall bulb and plant sales - please check our phone at 604-856-5758 for updated information each week.  We will also be having two open weekends in late November/early December with our own small version of a Christmas Market!  Various shrubbery for wreaths, centerpieces, etc will be available as well as completed products and a wide line of solid wood ornaments and decorative Christmas trees and some goodies! 


This page will be updated in the new year with information on our spring season, but please note that our Facebook page is updated much more frequently and will have pictures and information on upcoming plants for 2018.  JUST SEARCH FACEBOOK UNDER ‘ERIKSON’S DAYLILY GARDENS‘ AND YOU WILL FIND US! 


Again, our sincere thanks to everyone and we hope you have a pleasant fall, a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year!  If we don’t see you before, we look forward to welcoming you in March 2018!

Our annual Open House held July 8th and 9th was a big success and it was so wonderful to see so many people come and enjoy the garden!


We would also like to thank our generous contributors who provided the prizes for the draw (the list of those people and businesses are also listed on our Specials page - please give them your support as well as they truly are all so community minded!)  We always keep their names up until the following open house - especially since so many of our contributors help us out every year and we are indebted to them.

Our daylily and hosta collections are continually growing - and our current count is over 3,000 varieties of daylilies and 600 varieties of hosta - and who knows what it will be by the end of 2018! We also have two of our own new daylily introductions that we will post later - very excited about both of them!


Also this year, we will again have a wide selection of high-end containers available at the beginning of the 2018 season.  These pots are from Vietnam, but are double glazed.  We have two containers that we purchased from the same company fifteen years ago, and they are still sitting on our back deck having shown no winter damage at all!  We will have plenty of colors and styles available! 


In addition, we have expanded our line of quality cast iron garden ornaments and will have some truly amazing wood turned pieces later in the year!  Stay tuned for those!


IMPORTANT NOTE:  For those shopping at the nursery, please note that we accept cash, cheques and can now take Visa and Mastercard for purchases over $50.00.  Thank you.

PLEASE NOTE - When visiting our gardens at bloom time, it is very important to remember that is a private hybridizing garden - this means that our main focus is on cross pollinating and creating new varieties.  To this end, it is imperative that no blooms be touched, deadheaded or sniffed in the garden!  I know it’s hard for gardeners not to do that - but it really does destroy a years worth of work if someone moves a stem to take a picture and a crossed bloom falls off.   We also apologize, but we are not equipped to allow wheelchairs, strollers or walkers into the garden.  This is for both the preservation of our hybridizing program and for your own safety as the pathways are very narrow, uneven and have sharp edges that wheels can easily go over and fall. 


Please note that Pam’s email address has changed - the new one is pamerikson@uniserve.com - for any information at all, please feel free to email or call 604-856-5758
