Family-owned and operated for over 60 years


Founded as a small garden centre in 1961, Vandermeer's now grows thousands of plants in our very own greenhouses for every season. You'll find quality annuals, perennials, house plants, roses, water plants and more. We're open year-round, use biological pest controls, and maintain sustainable practices to help keep our plants pollinator-friendly. Find us on the corner of Lake Ridge Road South and Bayly Street in Ajax, Ontario for all of your gardening and pond needs.
