Shopper’s Diary: Centro Garden in Ontario

November 14, 2011 9:34 PM

BY Julie Carlson

Launching just in time for the holiday season, Centro Garden in Burlington, Ontario, is a store created by "a group of local individuals who are excited about design, art, style, gardens, and all things green. We mix the outside with the inside by focusing on plantcentric culture." The founder, Jason Pepetone, is a lifelong garden enthusiast (his family owns Ontario's Terra Greenhouses). Their Christmas courtyard, opening this weekend, will feature outdoor floral arrangements of pine and cedar branches with birch bark. Currently, the store does not sell online; to see the offerings, go to Centro Garden.
