The Botanus Story

Elke, Wendy, Pam











It’s hard to believe that 20 years ago we were a small mail-order company with big dreams – dreams about making a difference in the Canadian gardening world with the goal of getting people excited about gardening by providing top notch plants and outstanding service.

Now after seeing so many wonderful seasons come and go we’ve achieved that goal and continue to grow along with the hundreds of thousands of plants we’ve sent out to happy gardeners across the country! 

What we’ve accomplished, what we continue to do and what we strive to achieve in the future all comes down to three simple words: Care ~ Inspire ~ Grow. This is what we do, this is who we are and this is what we wish for our gardening friends and customers. You’ll notice that we have now officially incorporated these three words into our logo.




- Everything we do and say is because we care. Caring is one of our core values and will never be compromised. We care about plants, quality, service, the planet and people.

Inspire – We want to inspire and be inspired. Because of this we like to share information about plants, growing, gardening, projects, life and us. Inspiration from our customers and fellow gardeners is important to us and most welcome.

Grow – Growing is essential to our business and in our lives. We’re committed to it and love to grow plants, grow as individuals and grow as a community of like-minded people.

Botanus is our passion. We work as a team where we treat each other with respect and dignity. Our business is based on quality and care but also on connecting with people and enriching their lives with caring and kindness. We want everyone to feel a sense of belonging.

It’s our responsibility to Care ~ Inspire ~ Grow.

So here’s to the coming seasons, here’s to making Canada more beautiful one garden at a time … and here’s to you, our dear gardening friends!
