My name is Vyvienne and  I acquired my passion for gardening over many years through observation of plants that grow naturally plus gardens and landscapes that I have admired through travelling at home and abroad.

I have been gardening in Canada now for 35 years + and even at one point I had a small nursery business in the lower mainland specializing in ornamental trees and perennials (English country style).  My husband and I had such fun selling our products at Granville Market and seeing the joy on a customer’s face at discovering I had English primroses (primula vulgaris) for sale. 

Over the last two years, I have become very interested in botanical and landscape photography and I am now at a stage that I would like to pursue this further.  I do not claim to be an expert gardener or photographer, but I hope that my website will enlighten you all.   

When I am not in the garden or taking photos I enjoy spending my time with my family and my two lovely grandsons.

  1. I wish i could just hire you to come and do up my yard for me. Maybe before we sell and downsize. I do way more out at our place at the lake and keep here to a real minimum. You really have had the most amazing gardens . Enjoy Vyvienne

    1. I would love to help you Denise. It is a pity that we live so far away. Thanks for complementing me on my past gardens. Our present garden is not so grand but I still make the most of the space that we do have. Take care.

  2. I so wish I had a large garden for you to design for me! It was lovely growing up with so many magical gardens xo

Would love to hear your feedback.
