Live Here


We are growers and suppliers of premium annual and perennial plants, shrubs, trees and garden supplies.
Lockyer's has one of the largest on-site greenhouse facilities located in Eastern Ontario. The vast majority
of our plants, flowers, herbs and vegetables are started from seed or plugs right here on the premises!

We pride ourselves on the high quality, maintenance and grooming that goes into growing plants for our loyal customers. Each and every plant is personally touched and cared for by our dedicated team of horticulture professionals. We constantly strive to be first with new varieties and types of plants, while providing good customer value. This includes providing large plants and planters that are given lots of space to maximize their growth.



Our greenhouses carry an extensive selection of annual and perennial plants and an upper level of thousands of hanging baskets. Our concrete floors make it easy to walk around and take in the beauty, wide selection, variety and upscale size of our plants.


The plants are conveniently setup by sun/shade required sun exposure and are laid out alphabetically
to help you locate them easily... Annuals by common name; Perennials by Latin name. We’ve been told
on numerous occasions: “ It's great to have so many colour scheme combinations and varieties all in one place!” and “This is even better than 'Canada Blooms'… and the view is free!”


Greg Moore the owner, and CJ Dearlove the General Manager, are the most recognized faces at Lockyer’s. We rely however on the help of a very knowledgeable staff who share the same passion for horticulture and gardening. Some of them have been with us for close to 20 years!

We even have our own in-house mascot Greeters… Barkley and Sophie. These much beloved family Retrievers come to work every morning to welcome our customers and visitors who drop by to just enjoy the sheer beauty of our greenhouse, grounds and the large number of plants and baskets that we grow… right here!
