Nestled at the entrance to UBC Botanical Garden, the Shop in the Garden features unique treasures for gardeners and novices alike. The Shop in the Garden showcases a diverse selection of gardening and botanical books, handy garden tools and accessories, distinctive gifts and dried flower arrangements. The Garden Centre offers seasonal choice selections of perennials, small trees, shrubs and vines for the garden and patio.

The Shop in the Garden and Garden Centre is operated by the garden’s volunteers, the Friends of the UBC Botanical Garden. All proceeds from the Shop in the Garden and 100% of the purchase price of the seeds fund research, education and garden improvements at UBC Botanical Garden.
