Where does one begin to talk about how wonderful Ron and Karen Charron are!!

Garden CustomerI have been a customer at Yesterdays Garden for several years now. I keep going back because of Karen and the amazing selection of rare and unique plants that no other garden centre carries!! Karen’s extensive knowledge of every single, plant, tree or shrub is astonishing! No matter what plant you ask her about she passionately explains to you in great detail their names, growing habits and description of them. It is very nice that you can go to their garden centre and you have someone who knows and understands everything there is to know about gardening and landscaping.

If they are not available you can leave a message for them and it WILL be returned quickly.


I recently hired Yesterdays Garden to landscape a garden in front of our house. Over the past several years I dabbled with my gardens and kept adding different perennials and shrubs to it over time. In the end it looked like a bunch of plants that were just stuck in spots here and there; no real flow or continuity. We had to re-design our walkway leading into the house so took this opportunity to contact Karen to get her professional expertise and creative touches. She worked closely with me on the plant selection – I knew that I wanted colourful and compact plants but had no clue which ones I wanted - so I spent a lot of time researching various plants on the internet. Karen so graciously spent hours with me to say why one plant would be perfect and the other one wouldn’t work in our space. Karen always had time for me and always returned my emails and answered my many questions. 

Working with Karen & Ron has been an absolute pleasure and a wonderful experience. I will definitely use their services again in the future and always highly recommend them to everyone.
