Welcome to Erikson’s Daylily Gardens and Perennials

 
 

SEPTEMBER 28, 2018


This is our last open weekend of the season!  We thank everyone for visiting and look forward to seeing you all again when we reopen in March 2019.  In the meantime, please check our Facebook page as we regularly update it throughout the fall and winter and only get a chance to update this site periodically!


*************************************************************


Our annual Open House was again a big success and it was so wonderful to see so many people come and enjoy the garden!  Our sincere thanks to all our amazing volunteers and to the members of both the Aldergrove Daylily Club and the Langley Garden Club for their ongoing support!


We would also like to thank our generous contributors who provided the prizes for the draw again this year (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 more of our own new daylily introductions that we will post later - very excited about 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 are a small business and greatly appreciate payment by cash and cheque but can now take Visa and Mastercard for purchases over $40.00.  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 Pam’s email address - pamerikson@uniserve.com - for any information at all, please feel free to email or call 604-856-5758
