Boundary Bay's Profile
|Display Name:||Boundary Bay|
I'm a Gen-Xer and until recently had limited space to garden (although that didn't stop me). Now that I have lots of space, I'm growing vegetables in raised beds and slowly adding shrubs and perennials to what is currently a sparse landscape. I want to incorporate interesting and unusual plants, as well as lots of local native ones and heirloom varieties. However, most garden centres do not sell many native or heirloom plants. Like big box bookstores, they carry "bestsellers". The rest of their retail space is filled with garden knick knacks and containers that appeal to my MIL, but certainly not to me. Honestly, I don't think the garden industry in general markets to younger people, so they should not be surprised when they don't see many in their stores.
