Flower Power is a newly established “U Pick” cut flower garden located in beautiful, rural Metchosin. We specialize in providing all the floral needs of rural/outdoor marriage ceremonies, special occasions and gatherings. We can design and provide extra large bouquets, arrangements and centerpieces, floral garlands and wreaths – whatever you may desire by way of floral/foliar decoration.

Our garden offers a wide selection of:

  • Perennial and annual flowers
  • Ornamental grasses and restios
  • Flowering shrubs and vines
  • Foliage and filler material

~ The garden opens for picking mid April ~

Flower harvesting is best done in the early morning or evening. The garden will therefore be open 7:30 – 11:00 am and 6:00 – 9:00 pm Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.

If you wish to visit outside these hours, please email chasknighton@gmail.com or call 250-474-7062 to let us know when would like to use the garden and we will meet you there.

Visitors are encouraged to bring their own containers and secateurs, although we will have clippers and buckets of water for flower gatherers to use on site.
