We specialize in:



You will find unusual and rare as well as our reliable indigenous selection. Something for every season, any condition, every colour, food for our pollinators and a feast for our eyes.


Rhododendrons & Roses

We stock plants that originated in the arid climes of the Mediterranean, the mountains of Japan, humid conditions of the southern hemisphere, shady woodland habitat and our own rain forest.



We carry an extensive selection of warm season, cool season, and annual grasses to support that sensation of movement to your garden. Whether planted as a complement to perennials and shrubs or featured as a savannah in a dry area, grasses offer what every other plant, shrub, and tree cannot.



Shade-loving ferns will add a lush element to your design and bring fresh essence to the meaning of green.


Specimen and caliper trees

We have Japanese maples, conifer, beautiful flowering ornamental dogwood, magnolia, and fruit trees. We also offer large calipers for replacement or to give your garden a more established look.



One seldom regards the precious microscopic world within our soil. Without it, our gardens would cease to exist. At IAT we have groundcover to thrive in any climatic condition no matter the soil type… so, plant a lawn alternative, protect your eroding slope and support our intricate habitat.

All our stock is top quality and hardy for our zone so as to give you the best results for your investment. Ingrid Beattie and her enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff are always ready to discuss ideas about your garden and offer suggestions and solutions for those hard to garden areas.

Landscape professionals will receive our Industry Discount and are encouraged to bring their clients. If you are visiting for the first time, make sure you register your Business with us so we can enter you in our system.
