Have no fear – you can still shop here!

Our Vancouver store has obtained a movement certificate so that our customers can purchase plants and soils, no matter where they live!

What Do The Restrictions Mean?

  • Soil, leaves and outdoor plants cannot be moved outside of the regulated area (but you can dispose of them in your area)
  • This action is to stop the spread of the Japanese Beetle, a destructive and invasive alien species detected in Vancouver as of 2021
  • Movement restrictions are in place during the Japanese Beetle flight period (June 15 – October 15)

For all other Japanese Beetle inquiries and questions, see below.
