Gardening in Alberta is tough, and if you’ve never gardened before or if everything you plant withers, it can be intimidating and frustrating. I firmly believe that anyone can be successful at gardening; they just need help with the basics, and we at The Wheelbarrow Gardener and Florist are your first step
to a vibrant garden, and much more.
Growing a lush garden or bountiful veggie patch isn’t as difficult as you may think. I offer ‘garden coaching’ where I can muck in the soil with you to get your garden off to a good start. I also offer tips and advice on what to plant, how, and where to plant it. We also provide garden maintenance, so if you have mobility issues, unable to dedicate the time, or going to be away, my team and I can keep your garden from becoming a jungle by weeding, dead-heading and watering your gardens—we’ll even weed right along with you if you can’t do the whole yard yourself. And if you need garden design help we also offer consulting and installation services.
And now with our new design studio in Riel Park, we’re able to offer you more than beautiful flowers and garden help. Our venue can hold up to 50 standing people or approximately 35 seated. This is the type of space that allows you to get creatively messy: if your social club wants to learn how to make a seasonal wreath, we can put together a workshop; if you’d like a corporate team-building event, I can work with you to choose the right project. Plus, we’re open to out-of the box offerings: if you have a home business and you’re unsure if you’re ready for your own store, you may rent this space as a pop-up shop. It’s even customizable for events like photo shoots and meetings.
For one of the most exciting events in a couple’s life, this space is perfect for an intimate wedding ceremony. We offer a basic wedding package, which includes rental of our space, a floral package, and a wedding commissioner who can preform a civil service if you require one. During the free consultation, we can discuss flowers (boutonnières, bouquets, centrepieces), colour themes, and décor rentals such as arches or props for wedding photos. It’s a wonderful option for your special day if you wish to have a personal ceremony with close friends and family in a beautiful unique space.
We believe in the importance of incorporating beautiful things into your life, so if you’d like to bring the beauty of nature to your wedding, office party, or workshop, then we at The Wheelbarrow Gardener and Florist will be happy to work with you to create the perfect event.
