Testing plants for Life In Canada – Canadian Tire Garden Centre

Last Spring, Judy Shirriff, Canadian Tire’s gardening expert travelled to the California spring trials and showcase to select the best plants for 2015. Next, Judy visited test gardens across Canada to select the plants that work best for the various regions.

 

I’m Judy Shirriff, I’m a buyer at Canadian Tire and Canadian Tire’s gardening expert. We have 500 stores across the country and almost all of them have a garden centre full serve of some kind. So we’re touring the trials this week and we’re seeing these beautiful, mature, fully-grown plants and we’re getting all excited, yes these are the ones we want in our market. It doesn’t matter how they look in California, it matters how they’ll work at home. So I’m going to have, over the course of the summer, these plants grown in different parts of Canada and we’re going to make sure they perform as we expect and they look the way we saw them here in California. 

 

Today we’re in a green house about 45 minutes North of Toronto and this is one of several facilities that are testing plants to see that they grow here as well as expected. What we do want to test for is that these plants will stand up to the different climates in those regions. So in the prairies you have a very sunny dry climate. In British Columbia it can be very damp. We’ve gone through the trial, we’re very excited about our selection. We took out a couple earlier in the season that didn’t work and I think the plants you see here today will be the ones we go with. And it’s rigorous testing like this that makes Canadian Tire, Canada’s gardening store.
