About Us

The Garden Dickson is Canberra’s premier local garden centre. Proudly locally owned and operated since we first opened in 1976.

At The Garden, all garden styles and philosophies are provided for, and we pore over suppliers’ lists well into the night to ensure that a broad and healthy range of plants are stocked throughout the year. Whether you have a formal, native, low-maintenance, low-water, organic, cottage-style, practical, herbal, vegetable, fruit, or any other kind of garden, The Garden is the place to bring your garden aspirations to fruition. At The Garden we are passionate about sustainable gardens of all styles, and offer the combined expertise of both our staff and suppliers to ensure that your garden flourishes regardless of the conditions we face. The challenge of making gardens more water efficient has engaged the best minds in the industry and is one that we heartily support. The Garden Dickson is a big contributor to Canberra’s inner north, as well as being the only local garden centre, we actively support local schools, community organisations and charities.


We understand that gardening can be a messy operation, and so we are more than happy to help you get your purchases to your car or load them for you. Despite our best efforts to have the best range of plants available all year round, we are more than happy to try and find any plant you are looking for. Due to climate and seasonal considerations we are not always able to source requests, but we will do our very best! - Expert friendly service - Plant, Pest and Disease Diagnosis - Plant identification - Plastic pot recycling bin – discard your old pots or pick some new ones up - Lay by service - Gift wrapping (fees apply) - Delivery available (conditions apply – see in store) - Gorgeous Gift vouchers - Our very own Garden Club
