CLICK ON QUESTION MARK FOR CURRENT AVAILABILTY With our yard now open, pre-ordered purchase of nursery stock has been suspended.
This is to devote available staff resources to safely serve and direct those who are here. In many instances, items are sold faster than we can process a phone or online order.
THANK YOU FOR VISITING!
We are proud to have you among the more than 2.2 million visitors to our website since 2003.

Grobe Nursery and Garden Centre is Waterloo Region's largest local and family owned garden centre, serving the Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge and Guelph areas for almost 60 years.
We specialize in the selling of plants of all kinds, and offer complete landscape design, planting, and landscaping construction services. Our year round Gift Shop offers truly unique garden and seasonal giftware items and one-of-a-kind garden décor. Our Indoor Christmas Tree Country experience offers convenient selection of thousands of the very best fresh cut Christmas trees, quality pre-lit artificial trees, seasonal greens and urns and much more.
We are as excited as you are to be welcoming gardening season again to Waterloo Region.
But yet again..visiting Grobe's needs to be different.
Folks... it's like this....
We recognize how important it is for you to see what you are purchasing prior to purchase. If we learned nothing else last year, it was that folks will choose curbside purchasing ONLY when faced with no other option.
To be OPEN and to safely permit you access to our nursery and garden centre as an essential business, we must comply with strict protocols for doing so. Among these protocols are INSIDE SPACE CAPACITY limits. These capacity limits are subject to change (and the recent Stay At Home order is a case in point). As these change (hopefully for the better) then so too will be our guidelines for admission (Please click on the READ ME NEXT tab and MAKE SURE YOU KNOW THEM PRIOR TO VISITING).
PLEASE REMEMBER - These limits are not set by us.
What we CAN control, however, is WHO has access, WHAT they have access to, and FOR HOW LONG. It is not unreasonable to limit access for ANY REASON to permit safe and equitable access to the majority of our guests, and for the safety of our staff.
We are a largely SEASONAL business, which means that our ability to serve AS MANY PURCHASING CUSTOMERS as possible IN A COMPRESSED PERIOD OF TIME is essential to our viability as a business. We know it's not an ideal situation, but we count ourselves fortunate to be able to be open, and we need your help and patience while we serve you if we are to stay that way.
Our GOAL during this pandemic has been to reduce the time you are here, reduce the number of individuals and unnecessary contacts that you will come in contact with while on our premises, and do our best to ensure you return home where it is safest as quickly as possible.
We thank you in advance for permitting us to serve you during these difficult times. We wish you happiness and peace in your garden this season.
THINGS TO KNOW - GUIDELINES TO ADMISSION AT GROBE'S DURING A PANDEMIC
Most people 'plan' to visit - and this has added meaning with the current capacity restrictions. You should have a plan of what you wish to see and evaluate prior to arrival. We will do our best to direct you to what you wish to see in a timely way once you have gained admittance. If you are visiting to 'just look around', and do not have a plan of what you wish to see when asked, you may be denied admission. We are happy to welcome pandemic weary browsers to our nursery AFTER peak season this year - not during it. This may change if our capacity limits and regional control status improves.
Our wagons and carts are used to help us to regulate capacity. If you are requiring annuals, you will require a shopping cart, and will be denied access to the flower/veggie house without one. Those wanting other plants will use a wagon.
All visitors will require a properly worn mask for entry and to observe social distancing guidelines. If you have a problem with these now accepted requirements, please take any attitude, argument and your business to another retailer.
All visitors will be asked to accept hand sanitizer as a requirement to entry. We will provide it. It is a quality liquid (not gel) product of which we have received compliments. If you wish to use your own, you will be asked to apply it within sight of our gate staff.
Last year all children were denied entry to protect them from unnecessary contact with other individuals (our staff and other customers). Our nursery and garden centre at peak season during the third wave of a pandemic is not the place 'for an outing', 'for an educational experience', or 'to see nature'. Please do not put anyone in your family (old or young) at risk by needlessly bringing them to our location when you already KNOW we will have many unknown people here. This is not discrimination; this is a common sense approach to keeping your family, and ours, safe.
To permit their entry, and to assist us in complying with our capacity restrictions, only TWO RELATED PERSONS from each FAMILY that visits will be admitted during our peak season of April 17th to July 1st.
This means - One adult/one child from a family or one adult/one teen or two adults per family. A family includes any generation of related individuals. That means that grandpa plus daughter would count also as two related individuals - grandma, son-in-law, other children and anyone else visiting together with them will be excluded from entry until the two permitted entry have exited.
Those who attempt, or have entered and are found to have circumvented this limitation or any other guideline in any way during our peak period will be asked to leave.
Situations where a single parent and 2 or more young children need to attend may book an appointment a minimum of one week in advance here. Available times are Tuesdays and Wednesday afternoons only from 3:30 - 6 pm.
There are NO PUBLIC WASHROOMS available.
There are NO PETS permitted other than documented service dogs.
As it was in 2020, there will be NO AD HOC settling of warranty claims at our entry (see your warranty documents for details of online settlement).
We Are...The People to Know When You Want It to Grow!
Landscaping? Yes! We Do That! In fact.. we have been for more than 50 years. ALL PLANTING WORK HAS BEEN SUSPENDED DUE TO COVID-19.

of trees, shrubs, gardening supplies and more - and we see them visit from all over Ontario.
Waterloo Region and Guelph are both growing rapidly with new people discovering how
great it is to live and work here. As so many garden centres are only seasonally open MANY OF THESE FOLKS DON'T KNOW
GROBE'S OFFERS CHRISTMAS IN A BIG WAY!
Here are just a few things to know about Christmas Tree Country at Grobe's...
We've been a Christmas destination locally for more than 40 years.
We offer thousands of the finest quality fresh cut trees that are displayed indoors.
We have the very finest pre-lit everlasting trees as well.
We have fresh greens, pot inserts, wreaths, and seasonal plants.
Our new Christmas Wonderland is filled with amazing decorating ideas.
Our Gift Shop will amaze you with unique gift ideas for everyone on your list.
If you wish to pick your tree from among our great selection early, and have us hold it
until you are ready to set it up.. We offer this service FREE OF CHARGE!
It takes a little time to complete our transformation, so right now you will find our store in transition as we get ready to safely host thousands of Christmas guests. If it was your party... you would start early too!
However, for those who wish to see what's new for Christmas EARLIER THIS YEAR (given the current Covid-19 situation), there's plenty to see if you were to visit RIGHT NOW.
We look forward to seeing you in person at Grobe's!

Trust the knowledgeable staff at a Certified Garden Centre like Grobe's for the very latest on Proven Winners brand name plants and shrubs.
It mainly affects annual and perennial broad leaf plants (ragweed, dandelions, creeping charlie, chickweed, etc.) It does not affect grasses. Unlike non-selective herbicides, ADIOS AMBROS® is safe for your lawn.
Registered by HEALTH CANADA as a reduced risk pesticide management product without any restriction of application. It is safe for the environment.
ADIOS AMBROS® may be applied by vaporization directly on the foliage. Its systemic action mode provides rapid desiccation of the plant all the way to the roots. Only a single application is usually needed to kill the plant within the next hours.
Unlike non-selective herbicides, Herbanatur ADIOS AMBROS® will control selectively annual or perennial broad leaves species only. The all natural solution does not have any effect on the roots of perennial grasses and will never destroy your lawn. However, the foliage of some graminae (grassy) species, especially during drought periods, can be temporarily affected if sprayed directly. For instance, the color of the lawn can fade a little bit for a few days but will gradually find the same color again. Foliage that does not receive the spray application will be unaffected.
Visit Grobe's Nursery and Garden Centre soon, and let us show you how easy it is to improve your lawn...naturally.
Let us show you how to make the most of your yard. Quality products, fair prices and knowledgeable staff to help you make that garden paradise.
FINALLY... GREAT GARDENING WEATHER ARRIVES!
Are you going crazy itching to get at the garden? WE'RE A BIT CRAZY HERE NOW TOO!
The lateness of the 2018 spring season, coupled with seeing
so many folks all at once, means that during our peak spring
sales period we regret that we cannot always respond to phone inquiries
in as timely a manner as usual while we serve those
who are here in our yard and store.
You should know that answers to 'do you have'
questions can also be sent in via email. At those peak times it can often be quicker.
We will do our best to ensure we have it in stock before you
visit - but our plants are SO GOOD they do leave us quickly.
If you are travelling to us from outside the Region of Waterloo, and need to know
if it's worth coming for an item, an image can be sent upon request.
If you are 'price shopping' without seeing the
quality we have to offer, we are confident that our plants are fairly priced and are of good value for the exceptional quality offered by the
15+ local people that are employed here to grow them and serve you.
Those visiting can see THIS as we use all available resources to serve them
here when we are so busy during peak times.
We will always answer your questions at worst after hours if an email is sent.
WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU SOON IN PERSON AT GROBE'S!
