Welcome to Outback Nursery & Garden Centre
6016 Headquarters Road
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 seized the opportunity to open to the public.
