About Us Canning Perennials is a family owned nursery specializing in hardy perennials. We have been in operation since 1993. This on-line catalogue offers over 1500 different varieties of hardy perennials, groundcovers, ornamental grasses, vines, shrubs and more. Plants may be ordered for pick-up or can be shipped right to your door anywhere in Canada. I hope you enjoy our catalogue.

Making A Purchase All prices are in Canadian Dollars. We ship anywhere in Canada. Unfortunately due to the high cost of shipping and also further restrictions at the border, we can no longer ship to the United States.

You can order on-line for shipping or for pick-up. Please specify in the shipping instructions (or send an e-mail) if you would like to pick-up your plants. A 10% discount will be applied to your plant order if you can pick them up. The discount does not apply to gift certificates.

Making a purchase could not be easier. Just browse our Catalogue, and click on any items that you wish to buy and put them into the shopping cart. After you have finished your selection, click on "Order" and you will be asked for a few details that we need to be able to satisfy the order.


We accept Visa and Mastercard. We do not charge your card until we are ready to ship, or until your plants are ready for pick-up. You may send your credit card information securely through the catalogue, or via phone, fax or snail mail. Please note that we can not reserve your plants until we have received payment. Please keep us up to date if your credit card or shipping information changes.

We also accept cheques and bank transfer. You can transfer your payment to chris@canningperennials.com. If you choose either of these two payment methods please note that your order is not complete and we can not reserve your plants until we have received your payment -- and it will be processed immediately. Do email me if you have any questions.


Plants will commence shipping as soon as weather permits and the plants are ready -- usually beginning in early May. If you would like to delay receiving your plants or will be away in May please email me well before May 1st.

We can hold your plants to ship later in the season, but unfortunately due to weather and availability we can not ship plants sooner.

Please note that we are not a big box store. Some quantities are limited. Plants are reserved and shipped on a first come, first served basis. The catalogue goes on-line February 1st and gardeners start ordering immediately. If you place your order later in the season we do make every effort to ship on a timely basis however there is definitely a que of orders. Your patience is appreciated. Generally all orders are shipped by the first week in June at the latest.

Plants are brought in specifically to fill your order. Please do not cancel plants or your order after March 15th. This courtesy would be appreciated -- otherwise we are 'stuck' with your plants.

Pricing -- occasionally prices may change if the size of the plant changes.

Many customers have us write specific delivery instructions on the box. For example: "LEAVE AT FRONT DOOR" or "LEAVE ON BACK PORCH". This is a great idea. Make sure the parcel is left in a secure spot out of the weather.
