At Sir James Dunn Academy, we sell only the highest quality plants we produce at the lowest price. Our plants are grown in the best medium for their needs, and we have worked hard to acclimatize them to Atlantic Canada's regular temperatures.
Local Horticulturalist, James Moore, worked with us this year to enhance our education, and ensure that our products will exceed the expectations of our customers. Our growing medium is a healthy mixture of peat moss, perlite and vermiculite. This provides a nourished base for the plants, and a great habitat for them to thrive in. We also use a natural growing hormone, Mycorrhizae, to strengthen plant root systems.
Our plants are grown in three to five gallon containers and include slow-release fertilizer. Each plant is sold completely mature, displaying flowers and produce, ensuring maximum yields during the growing season!
Inventory levels will be depleted on a first ordered basis and updated on our website ASAP. All purchases can be picked up at the school on your requested pick-up date.
Overall, we strive to give you the best experience possible. If there are any problems, please feel free to contact us, and we will help in any way we can.
