COVID-19 Policy

Our number one concern at Springtime Garden Centres will always be the safety and well-being of our employees, devoted customers, and the communities we serve.

As a business that distributes agricultural products, we are an essential service. To protect the health and safety of our employees and customers we will be implementing protocols to keep our garden centres as safe as possible.

We believe spending time outdoors doing activities like gardening are essential for mental and physical health and we are doing what we can to encourage you to do so. Gardening supports good physical and mental health through exercise, fresh air, beauty, and the harvesting of edible plants. Growing vegetables and herbs can fulfill some of your fresh produce requirements which will save you money and reduce your dependency on grocery stores.

Our open-air garden centres will be open for business 8am to 8pm seven days a week.  Please consider planning your visits to our garden centres after 4pm when we are less busy. Sunday evenings are an especially quiet time to shop, followed by Tuesdays and Wednesdays.  During busier shopping times, we will be limiting the number of customers in the garden centres.  Queues will be required and we ask that you please be patient. 

When visiting our garden centres, please follow these guidelines to keep everyone safe and healthy:

  1. ALL customers MUST wear a face covering that covers both nose and mouth (mask, scarf, etc.) to shop in our stores.
  2. In order to maintain safe distancing, we will be limiting the number of people permitted in the check out tent.  Please pay attention to our signage so you know where to queue.
  3. Aisles will be marked for one-way traffic. Please follow the arrows.
  4. All customers must maintain a minimum of 2 metres (6 feet) of distance between yourself and our staff and other customers.
  5. If you are shopping with a spouse or a friend, we ask that you try to stay together to make physical distancing easier between groups of shoppers.  Please do not bring children or pets with you to the garden centre.
  6. Please DO NOT pick up or touch any products unless you are certain that you would like to purchase them.
  7. Please wear your garden (or other) gloves when at the garden centre. This helps to protect against the contamination of shared surfaces.
  8. We prefer payment by credit or debit card, using the tap option whenever possible.  If use of the pin pad is required, we will be protecting it with a layer of disposable film between each use.
  9. We will not be accepting used trays or pots for recycling. We encourage you to bring your own trays, boxes or bags for your purchases.

Gardening is the perfect activity in this challenging time. It is a healthy and inspiring activity that you can do while living a more simplified life to “flatten the curve” and keep everyone healthy. We will be doing our very best to get you the plants you need in the safest ways possible.

Finally, this will be a challenging time for small businesses including Springtime Garden Centres. We appreciate your continued support and patience and will strive to provide you with the same high level of customer service we have been offering for the past 41 years.

    I love buying my flowers and herbs at Springtime. Their herb selection is great and the flowers are always fresh and vibrant. The Springtime Garden Centre team is always so helpful when I am looking for new ideas for my planters.

    The quality of the flowers and plants available at Springtime is unbeatable. I've been shopping there for a long time, and year after year they continue to impress me. Definitely the best garden centre in the area.
