PLANNING YOUR GARDEN VISIT

We are so excited to invite new and familiar faces alike to experience the pure magic of peonies in bloom, and have over 90 unique varieties to show off this summer! Please keep the following in mind as you plan your visit: 

  • Garden visits can be made by appointment only. Please use the 'contact me' tool at the bottom of this page and be sure to include your preferred day and time, and I will do my best to accommodate your request!

  • Garden viewing is dependent on the weather. It is also important to note that the garden is on a west-facing city lot which does not provide mid-day shade.

  • The garden is located in a cul-de-sac with sidewalk parking available directly in front. Please take care not to block any neighbouring driveways or property. Jasper Place Jubilee Park lies directly east of the garden and is a very short walk away with plenty of free parking space available along 93rd avenue. 

  • Follow the progress of the garden on my social accounts or visit the 'In Bloom Today' page to ensure you don't miss out on your favourite varieties!

  • Visitors usually spend an average of 15 to 45 minutes enjoying the garden, depending on depth of interest, amount of photos snapped, and intent to ask questions (which are always welcome).

  • The best viewing times are from 1:00 PM, when the sun reaches the bulk of the garden, to 8:00 PM. The best times of day for photography are 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM when the sun is directly overhead, reducing sharp shadows, and 8:00 PM when the hazy golden hour light sets in. 

  • Please leave your garden shears at home. These blooms are for all to enjoy!

  • Please kindly watch your step as the garden has many tight spaces and narrow passages.

  • As much as we love our two pups, please be advised that pets are not permitted in the display garden.

  • To comply with current COVID-19 regulations and to prevent overcrowding, no more than eight visitors will be permitted to visit concurrently. Although I have been vaccinated and social distancing is easily achievable in this space, please let me know if you would be more comfortable if I wore a mask and I will happily do so.

  • Please let me know if there is anything that I can do to facilitate your visit or make it more enjoyable. Feedback is always welcomed and appreciated!
