About Art's Nursery
In 1973, Art attempted 'retirement' from his previous business by growing fields of roses for the nursery trade. He was open to the public on weekends, and as a result, Arts Saturday & Sunday Nursery was born.
With humble beginnings that included primitive greenhouses, a quaint fibre shed, carport and sawdust covered floors, the weekend nursery slowly expanded and grew in popularity. Over time it became necessary to open our doors to the public seven days a week. Soon thereafter, the business was renamed to the current Art's Nursery Ltd. The business continued to expand and innovate.
One of Art's most successful ideas was the use of golf carts on the nursery. Customers could browse and shop our large location with more convience and speed. The idea proved so popular that many people still refer to us as the Golf Cart Nursery.
Today, Art's nursery is still located in its original Port Kells, Surrey/Langley, British Columbia location and is one of Metro Vancouver's largest and most successful retail & wholesale garden centres and nurseries. The business is still family owned and operated by Art, members of his family, and over 30 professional staff including horticulturists, landscape designers and plant lovers. The nursery prides itself on the huge selection of high quality plants it provides, its professional horticultural service, and its competitive pricing.
