Returning used containers
We will no longer accept used containers (pots) back from customers.  We tried to reuse pots multiple times but unfortunately too many were returned in unusable condition.  Recycling facilities will not take pots with soil so the pots ended up at the dump.  Please rinse the containers and drop them off at a recycling depot.

About the company and the new owners:

Streamside Native Plants only sells plants that are native to coastal British Columbia.  Our customers include private home owners, developers, golf courses, landscapers, parks departments, schools, societies and various levels of governments.

Jim Roberts and Cyndi Hampton are a husband and wife team and new owners of Streamside Native Plants.  Originally from North Vancouver, they lived in the Victoria area for several years before taking a sabbatical from work to set out on a 14-month RV journey through BC and the Yukon. Back on Vancouver Island and with their adventure boots filled, they were looking forward to finding a small farm near Courtenay and "putting down some roots".

Jim is a biologist (R.P.Bio) with more that 25 year experience, including various regulatory roles and as an environmental consultant. Jim has worked with both Fisheries and Oceans Canada and BC
