Nursery Visit

We believe in working towards the best together, and that means learning from and experiencing the plants together. Hop in your car and come on over to our nursery, we’d love to show you around.

Test Centre

The Test Centre is like a bootcamp for Hydrangeas, where they’re exposed to everything nature can throw at them. Located on our nursery grounds, right behind Alex’s home, the Hydrangeas are planted in a few different sections, identified by a marker and tested thoroughly. We visit the plants every day, check in on them, have a chat to see how they’re doing.

The Showgarden at the nursery

Epicenter of the Hydrangea Paniculata

When we started Living Creations®, we decided to collect every panicled Hydrangea in the world. To grow them, study them, get to know their quirks and personalities, see what makes them tick. Hydrangeas from across the Atlantic, but also plants from our neighbours and fellow growers. Our Showgarden is still growing every year. It’s like a small Hydrangea museum. It’s a place for you to visit. Come over!
