The New Green Thumb Garden Centre
We’re back at it again!
After 18 years of exclusively focusing on the wholesale side of the nursery industry, this January the Gerke family took over the Green Thumb Garden Centre in Nanaimo. When Green Thumb Nurseries first began in 1959, founders Gerhard and Gertrud Gerke enjoyed being able to serve local gardeners directly through their garden centre. We are happy to once again get to serve and share our expertise of plants with our community’s homeowners and garden enthusiasts.
Our focus is to provide Vancouver Island with a large selection of locally-grown plants accompanied with great customer service. Now customers of Green Thumb Garden Centre will more easily be able to access the options and selections afforded by our nursery’s 40+ acres of stock. We are looking forward to trying some new and exciting initiatives at Green Thumb Garden Centre, like making sure that you’ll be able to see a full selection of plant material year round. With over 50 years in business, our family and staff have developed a deep knowledge of plants and gardening that we are excited to share with our customers. Whether you are experienced or just starting out, we’re more than happy to help. Please feel free to stop by any day of the week and see what’s new!
