Gardening supplies in Canada - statistics & facts

Gardening is a much-loved past time by many people around the world, with Canadians being no exception. It can be a great hobby for people who may want to get some light exercise, relax, or simply get some fresh air. To better inform gardeners, Canada has a number of different hardiness zones. The purpose of these zones is to show gardeners of which type of trees, shrubs and flowers can withstand the conditions in certain areas. Due to the cold climate and short growing season, this system can be a great help to beginners wanting to start work on a garden.

Monthly sales of lawn and garden products, equipment and plants in Canada have peaked in May each year before the main growing season kicks off around the country. To prepare for such sales, garden centers across the country will be increasing their stocks. For example, production of potted plants and outdoor hanging pots may see an increase at this time of year.

Popular home and garden improvement stores in Canada include Home Depot. The American retailer had 182 stores across Canada in 2020. Taking into account all nursery stores and garden centers, the province of Ontario had the highest number of stores in 2019 with 440, followed by British Columbia with 240. The majority of flower and plant sales in Canada in 2018 were through mass market chain stores, with sales from domestic wholesalers coming second among other channels. It appears that Canadians also enjoy growing their own food at home, with sales of fruit and vegetable horticulture products steadily growing each year to reach around 1.51 billion Canadian dollars in 2018.
