From planting your first seed, to enjoying the fruits of your labour, Dig This has everything amateurs and experts alike need for a complete gardening experience. The gardening emporium boasts well-stocked seed racks, an impressive selection of gardening tools to meet your every need and even hobby greenhouses. Once your garden starts to grow, enhance its appeal with a statue, birdbath, gazing globe, solar accent lights or whimsical garden art. It may be dirty work, but why not look good while you do it by selecting some stylish gloves, hats and clogs from the outerwear department. Once your garden is complete, there’s nothing better than sitting back and enjoying it. To that end, Dig This has an excellent selection of all-weather garden furniture, as well as table linens and decorative items. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, Dig This is always happy to order it in.
Expert Advice from Gifted Gardeners
Vancouver Island is a hot (flower) bed for gardening enthusiasts, and some of the keenest green thumbs can be found working at Dig This. The business started as a single small shop in Victoria back in the 1980s, and has since grown to a multi-location gardening mecca. All of the shop owners and employees are avid gardeners and only sell products they use in their own gardens. As a result, they are highly knowledgeable and offer enthusiastic expert advice. Customers can also benefit from the collective expertise at Dig This by subscribing to the monthly newsletter, which includes stories, information on featured products, great gardening tips and details on upcoming events.
Helping the Community Grow
Want to know how to shape a bonsai or garden in the winter? Dig This hosts a variety of workshops to help gardeners expand their knowledge and meet other likeminded folks. Another good place to connect with fellow green thumbs is at the many garden tours and events on the Island, which Dig This supports by promoting and selling tickets in stores. Dig a little deeper, and you’ll learn that the shop also supports charitable organizations and events, such as the Victoria Hospice Teeny Tiny Garden Tour.
