Welcome to
Art's Nursery!

We all want to surround ourselves with plants. It doesn’t matter if it’s a beautiful garden full of flowers, shrubs and trees, a little patio with gorgeous pottery and plants, a home full of lush tropical foliage or sensational succulents, a little plant for the office or anything else.

Like you, we believe that plants should be part of our lives. But getting started can be challenging

Choosing The Best Plants Can Be Tough!

Picking the best plants for your garden, home or patio can be tough, time consuming and expensive.

Choosing the right plants in a sea of green with only tiny plant tags to help you pick can be frustrating. Who has time to figure out plant names written in some dead language anyways?

Trying to find someone that knows something in most other stores or online sites can be a waste of time.

You've Got Questions!

Where do I start?

Which plants are best? How many do I need? What does this one look like? How big does it get? Where do I plant it? How come this planting stuff is so heavy and tiring? What kind of dirt do I need? Does it need food? How do I take care of it? Do I really have to water it? What do I do if it gets sick or dies?

Did I just waste my time and hard-earned money?

Am I failure if my plant turns into mushy compost?

Doing nothing isn’t an option either – unless you want to be ‘that house on the block’ that children scurry past. Yes, you know the one … the one that neighbors glance at sideways and speak of in only hushed tones.

We Understand...

We feel your pain. We’ve been there too. We have all helped kill a few plants along the way.

Really, it wasn’t our fault was it?

That’s why we're here.

Cactarium at Art's Nursery


View The Cactarium Video On Youtube

We have something new and exciting to share with you! Our team has been working on a very cool project here at Art’s Nursery in Surrey and it’s time for the big reveal! Over the last few months, we have been working on the renovation of this beautiful glass greenhouse to become the home for our huge selection of cacti and succulents. It’s been a lot of hurry up and wait to pull all the elements together for this project and we are happy to see it ready for our community to enjoy.

The inspiration for this gorgeous Cactarium begins in Palm Springs desert at Moorten botanical garden. After touring their beautiful gardens, Mike and Rebecca became determined to bring the beauty of the desert back home to BC.

Keeping with a warm theme, sierra tone gravel was brought in from the Okanagan to complement the amber coloured cedar baseboard footings. Finding just the right fixtures to table the 1000’s of succulent and cacti was not the easiest decision to make. After looking at dozens of options, we settled with a natural wood tabletop and metal frame combo and we are pleased with the results. They look amazing!

To pull the look together, we brought in decorator Shelley Levis of Sow and Dipityto stage the Cactarium and add her special designer touches. You can see her unique one-of-a-kind pieces displayed throughout the greenhouse starting with the one suspended over the first set of tables when you enter. The massive Macrame is made from natural jute twine to completement the earthy tones of the space.

“This macrame was inspired by an old 70’s macrame pattern book I have in my collection. This piece is called ‘Saturn’ with two rings surrounding a hanging globe in the center”.

Shelley described the many steps of cutting and stretching out 18 cords 12 yards long across her yard to begin the 1000’s of knots required to make the sinnets. The piece took approximately 10 hours to make.

Another handmade piece by Shelley can be seen to your right after entering the cactarium.
“This simple tapestry was a last minute quick solution to screen the view from that corner of the greenhouse”

This area of the cactarium overlooks the back of the potting shed, a working space for the team at Arts that stores supplies, hoses and tools.

“I wanted to keep the space warm and use natural elements, so a piece of burlap became the canvas for a cactus embroidery. This stitch craft is trending right now, so the combination made sense and its simplicity turned out great”.

We can’t talk about a Cactarium without discussing the plants it was built for! Once the fixtures were arranged and the flow of the space was configured, the 1000’s of unique cacti and succulents were brought in and staged. Hundreds of terra cotta pots of all sizes can be found arranged within the displays for easy plant paring.

Groupings were created based on types such as cacti, mini succulents, mimicries and aloes. There are even little DIY kits provided for kids to make their own Cact-Guys!

The results are nothing less than spectacular and we are proud to offer this unique experience to our customers. The overall look and feel of the space will make you feel like you’ve been transported to the warm deserts of the south, perfect for escaping our drizzly winters here in the lower mainland.

Come and experience it for yourself, we are certain you will fall in love with at least one of the many special cactus living inside.
