About Comox Valley Horticultural Society

When plant enthusiasts gather there is a great sharing of knowledge, experience and goals. The CVHS was founded for these very reasons in the year 1978 by a group of individuals focused on the desire to network in their horticultural industry and promote local gardening interests.

CVHS Virtual Open Garden Tour; Nina & Roy’s, Comox

Nina and Roy have created a garden that is a beautiful oasis for birds, bees and butterflies. With the help of Landscape Designer Karen Cummins, they have a gorgeous and productive space encircling their home. Using sustainable and organic gardening practices they produce an enormous amount of fruit and vegetables for themselves and to share. Native plant species are used throughout their garden to offer habitat and food for local wildlife.
