Family Owned and Operated

Founded in 1960, Thérèse and Roger Laporte established what was then called Roger Laporte Flowers and Nursery by purchasing land and building their very first greenhouse. Twenty-two years later Thérèse and Roger partially-retire and their son Jean took ownership of the business along with his then-girlfriend Estelle. Now married, Jean and Estelle Laporte have established their mom-and-pop owned business as one of Ottawa’s most reputable garden centres. 

As a second generation family owned and operated business, the Nursery’s roots run deep within Ottawa’s East End. Furthermore, inspired by the four generations of gardeners that came before them, Nicolas and Monika Laporte, Jean and Estelle’s children, are thrilled and honoured to carry on the family’s legacy already deeply embedded in the community.


Our quality is unmatched! Unlike other garden centres, we sell ONLY top of the line, high-quality plants. Our horticulture specialists carefully monitor and care for all plants – from seedling to sale! We never compromise on quality and all our stock is guaranteed healthy. Many of our plants are grown onsite in one of our 17 greenhouses.
