Garden Coaching

Trusted Advice to Reach Your Garden's Full Potential

You step into your garden, and while many parts of it may be working well you're uncertain about what's needed to make it the retreat you truly want, and know it can be. Let Figaro’s Garden's knowledgeable staff help you realize your garden’s potential through our garden coaching service.

We will schedule an on-site meeting with you to assess your existing space, discuss the opportunities and options, and provide you with strategies to improve your garden that you can implement yourself. Following our meeting, we provide you with a document based on our discussion, consisting of DIY landscape recommendations and plant suggestions ideally suited to your space and the time you have available for maintenance.

Let us help you take your garden to the next level and create the oasis you’ve always dreamed about!

Additional Services We Offer:

Helpful Staff: Figaro's Garden is owned and operated by Hartley Rosen with superstar shop staff Conor Preston, Elsa Gregory-Herbold, Camille Sleeman, and Fiona Combey. Our landscape team is Carly Knutson and Elsa Gregory-Herbold. We pride ourselves on offering our customers a level of personal service and expertise that is second to none relative to other garden centres.

Garden Design: A single planter or a whole garden, we can design it for you. We specialize in patio/balcony/small residential growing and refer large-scale projects to colleagues in the industry. Click here for more info.

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 spring and summer we also have Master Gardener volunteers on hand most weekends to answer all of your gardening questions. Please ask for a schedule.

Delivery: Within the Vancouver area. Price depends on size of order 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 us a picture and we will try to identify it for you. ​

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, available in-store or ordered over the phone.

Gift Wrapping: We will wrap any plant or gift for you for a nominal fee.

"I have also used the garden consultation (with the owner, Hartley..) and it was revelatory. I would not hesitate to recommend this service for any gardener, novice or otherwise. He definitely has an intuitive understanding of conditions, and will never recommend anything that won’t thrive. What a welcoming place to have in the neighborhood, fairly priced and quality obsessed. Don’t go anywhere else for a gift - living is best. Thank you for such a curated treasure trove!"
