I'm wondering if anyone has been to the new Lowes store in the Toronto Area and checked out their tropical plants anything different than Home Depot or Rona
There is no Lowes in TORONTO. They opened 3 stores on the same day a while back and they are in:
I have been there once a week since then, and their stuff is kind of different from HD. They have a lot of tropical and seeds in right now
Just noticed our neighbourhood Lowe's is open (Caledonia Rd in Toronto). The plants dept looked pretty same-o, same-o, though, from what I could tell... wasn't looking for anything specific, though. And we'll see more I guess when the garden centre finally opens... seems a million years off still.
I was at the Lowes in East Gwillimbury this week. They had a 5ft palm for $9.99!
Other tropicals: euphorbia, goldfish plant, wandering jew..more that I don t recall.
The plants are all in great shape though and definately better variety that HD.
I ll go this friday and look more closely at the tropicals.
I'm originally from the States and I am SO excited Lowe's is here now! We went to the Caledonia location last weekend and only managed to get through a small portion of the store. My Canadian boys were amazed at the quality, selection, and prices of everything..AND really good customer service, a rare thing up here.
The garden centre will be worth the wait.
My DH and I went to the Brampton store when it first opened. I was disappointed with the selection and price of the plants. I was expecting great deals since everyone in the States always mention the great deals they get at Lowes on their plants. I haven't been back since, but will go again to check on things.
Were is the one in Brampton please?
We are always interested in checking out new stores. They advertised Lowes enough.
There are now 2 Lowes in Brampton. Here is where 1 of them is
North Brampton #2493
10111 Heart Lake Road
The other one in Brampton is on Kennedy Road. I think it's at Steele's. It is the setting where the old Rambler plant was.
Let me know what you think of it. I'd like to go again, and see if we like it better this time around. I can't believe how cheap the houseplants are at Lowe's according to all the forums, but when we went, the prices were comparable to our nurseries here.
