During the month of March we are working very hard preparing the garden centre for the spring season ahead. 
 
Trucks are arriving every week and we're stocking up on all your favourites.   
 
The item you are calling about could arrive anytime over the next 8 weeks.  We have no control over exact dates, so phoning to check availability is 'honestly' next to impossible at this time.
 
   This seasonal restocking takes time so please drive out for a look around.
 
First to arrive will be FRUIT TREES!
 
 
Covid now has a role in how we do things at Outback. 
We are a great supply for plants and trees!
We source from 20 suppliers and the inventory is ever changing.
 
If you have a question about a specific tree, the best first step is learning as much as you can from online sources.

Welcome to Outback Nursery & Garden Centre
6016 Headquarters Road, Courtenay BC V9J 1M7
 
  Outback Nursery is one of the largest garden centres on Vancouver Island  Our nursery is situated on a  6 acre property and offers 5 overflowing greenhouses (30x170ft); almost 23,000 square feet.

Outback Nursery began in 1998-1999 when our parents retired to the island from Aldergrove. They asked if we'd be interested in joining them and then purchased this  heavily treed property. We began clearing some trees and settled into country life trying our hand at raising some turkeys and pigs as well as growing some hedging and conifers. We joined the Farmer's Market, then as our inventory expanded we began running a spec truck down island stopping here and there to show our quality product to potential customers.

Little by little the property was cleared and one by one the greenhouses and irrigation zones increased to what you see today. In the beginning we were limited to wholesale and landscape clientele, then somewhere along the way interest in our nursery grew and we opened to the public.
