Helpful Staff: Figaro’s Garden is run by Hartley Rosen and Anne-Marie Whittaker (co-owners) with Faerlyn Bush (shop manager) along with Conor Preston, Chrissy Whitman, and Brian Tartt. Most of us have been through the Master Gardener program or have studied horticulture extensively. We pride ourselves on offering our customers a level of personal service that they will not find at other garden centres. We know a great many of our customers as friends on a first-name basis, so we assume we are doing something right.
Wish list: We understand that avid gardeners have specific rare plants that they desire. We maintain a customer wish list and actively try to source desired plants for our clientele. There is of course no guarantee that we can find a grower who has what you're seeking but we'll try our best.
Gardening or plant care advice: We do not promise to be able to answer every question, but we do promise to try. In the summer we have Master Gardener volunteers on hand most weekends to answer all your gardening questions. Please ask for a schedule.
Delivery: Within the Vancouver area. Price depends on size and distance from the shop. Ask for details.
Workshops and services: Whether it be a mobile blade sharpening service at Figaro's or a workshop on how to design hanging baskets, we aim to offer a variety of experiences and services that will serve your needs.
Plant or pest identification: Please bring a sample into the shop—in a sealed plastic bag to prevent contamination—or simply email usa picture and we will try to identify it for you.
Garden design: A single planter or a whole garden, we can design it for you. Ask in the shop or email us, and we’ll take it from there.
Potting: Bring your baskets, pots and planters into the store, and we will plant them up for you—either to your specification or perhaps you’d prefer to be surprised—for a nominal fee.
Gift cards: In any denomination you like.
Gift wrapping: We will wrap any plant or gift for you for a nominal fee.
