Visiting Minter Country Garden in Chilliwack, British Columbia
Located in Chilliwack, British Columbia, Minter Country Garden is an abundant garden store spread out over 18 acres. If you’re a serious gardener, I imagine you’d probably find everything you would need here to set up your own garden plot, plus a lot of helpful advice from the friendly and knowledgeable staff (the owner/operator of Minter Country Garden, Brian Minter, can usually be found somewhere in the store personally assisting customers with their gardening questions).
But even if you weren’t blessed with a green thumb, visiting Minter Country Garden makes for a nice outing simply to enjoy the vast array of plants and to soak up the rainbow of colors on display from the blooming flowers.
Here are a few of my favorite photos from my visits this spring to Chilliwack’s lovely garden store.
With both indoor and outdoor paths to explore, it’s easy to spend a good hour in the store. There are varieties of succulents, tropical plants, perennials, shrubs, trees, vegetables, and more. There’s also a gift store containing fashion and other home wares, as well as the onsite Cultivate Cafe, where you can find delicious pastries and good coffee.
