CAN YOU WALK IN?

GROBE'S NURSERY YARD, GREENHOUSE AND STORE
ARE OPEN TO THE PUBLIC WITH COVID-19 PROTOCOLS

FRIENDS AND VISITORS!  THIS HAS MEANT SOME CHANGES TO THE 'TYPICAL' GARDEN CENTRE EXPERIENCE.
Among these are - Social Distancing, More Sanitization of Frequent Contact Points, Hand Sanitizer For All Who Enter, No Ad Hoc Returns, Online Diagnoses of Issues, Controlled Access and more.  We ask for your patience as we do our best to safely permit access to what is here this season.
What about masks? Our staff use them, and we ask you to observe the NEW Region of Waterloo Bylaw that makes their use mandatory.
As limitations continue to be lifted we will be reviewing/altering our protocols in due course. As of Sept 26th however, we will continue to err to the side of CAUTION during the recent increases in infections as a result of Stage 3 re-opening.
We are sorry.. but we continue to ask that no children (13 and younger) come to visit at this time.

 Newest Evergreens 
Gold Splash Euonymus
A real improvement in Euonymus! The big, round leaves of this selection have bright, bold gold variegation that just punches out in the landscape in a far more impactful way than other, older varieties. A plant with excellent disease resistance, it grows to 24 inches tall by the same wide in full sun or partial shade. 
Golden Starlet Winter Heath
This shining starlet guarantees a year-round performance. Bred by Germany’s Kurt Kramer, ‘Golden Starlet’ is favoured for its bright golden foliage, snowy white blooms in early spring and tidy, low spreading habit. During the summer months, the leaves retain a glowing yellow hue, while cooler weather brings lime-green accents. Grows to 6" high and about 18" wide in full sun to light shade.
Nathalie Winter Heath
This pretty evergreen carpet plant grows in a compact, spreading habit and has deep-green foliage. It bears dark red flowers from in early spring and grows approximately 18" wide by 6" tall.  Easy to grow, it should be planted in a well-drained, acidic soil condition in full sun. Requires regular watering until established.
Darkness Scotch Heather
Larissa is a low-growing or dwarf evergreen shrub that has stems that are clothed in tiny overlapping deep green leaves. It produces a spike-like flower spike with small deep fuchsia pink 4-petalled flowers in the summer and fall. It grows to 18" high to roughly the same wide in sun and is best grown in slightly acidic conditions. 
Allegro Scotch Heather
This new 'Garden Girls' heather is known for having deep pink flower buds that are formed and are attractive in the early fall that are retained on the plant through the winter and into the spring and only open the end of summer.  It grows to about 10" tall by about 16" wide and is best planted in full sun where there is good drainage (non-clay).
Alicia Scotch Heather
Another in the 'Garden Girls' Scotch Heather series, this petite plant produces attractive white flower buds that are retained on the plant throughout the season, only opening come late August.  It grows to 16" high by about 24" wide and does best in full sun on well drained acidic soils (not clayey).
It's so soft you will want to pet it!  This small growing pine has soft blue green needles and a unique texture in the garden. It grows slowly to between 3 and 4 feet tall and wide in a roughly globular shape in sun or light shade. While it is quite hardy to the cold (it's hardy as far north as Sudbury) and grows well once established, some consideration should be made to ensure that it doesn't suffer from drying winter winds or salt.
Domingo White Pine
This is little known pine arising from a cross between Eastern and Mexican White Pine varieties is very hardy and drought tolerant. It offers dense soft blue needles in a narrow form that grows to 30 feet tall by about 15 feet wide. It grows best in full sun to light shade.
Compact Green Scotch Pine
This dense dwarf pyramidal pine has long green twisted needles and exhibits a unique two-tiered growth habit. The older growth has longer needles and the newer growth has needles that remain short until spring - but there are always two kinds showing. It grows slowly to 6.5' feet tall by roughly the same wide (it broadens and becomes more globe-like with maturity) in sun or light shade.
Runyan Yew

This yew variety is quite possibly the hardiest yew of them all. Soft deep green needles with lighter green new growth on a yew that is the least likely to winter burn. Grows in sun or shade at a slow rate and while in 50 years it could grow to 8', it is most commonly trimmed to a height of 3' to 4' feet. ** Special order
