Products We Carry



For many gardeners, annuals are a go-to solution for an array of garden needs. Annual flowers are a quick way to fill empty spots in flowerbeds, and early-blooming spring annuals make great additions to container gardens. A mix of annual plants can offer a colorful solution for windowbox plantings. However, for any garden, there are dozens of annuals that might work for particular sun/shade situations, soil conditions, and color/plant preferences.

Before deciding which annuals are right for your garden, consider the following questions:

  • Where do you plan to place your annuals?
  • Is the area shaded, sunny or a mixture of both?
  • What is the typical growing season in your region?
  • Are there certain types or varieties of annuals you prefer?
  • What are the characteristics of your soil, climate and garden?


The Art Knapp garden centre carries a variety of indoor and outdoor Tropical plants perfect for the Kamloops climate including Hoyas, Canna, Taro, Red and Green Caladium, Cactus and succulents. Tropical plants can be combined with other traditional annual plants in flower beds and containers to be placed around decks, pools or other outdoor living or recreation areas. Just remember, most tropical plants are not winter-hardy above Zone 10. To carry them over to the next season they would have to be planted in a container and overwintered indoors.

Soil & Seeds

No matter how green your thumb is, you’re likely to have trouble growing plants if you don’t have the right conditions. One of the biggest culprits behind plants that fail to grow is the type of soil being used.

At Art Knapp Garden Centre our team of experts are here to assist you in choosing the right type of soils for your garden. We have many in stock to fit your needs.


Fertilizers are very important to plants. Aside from sunlight and water, fertilizer is essential to them. If the soil is well-loamed and rich, it is a good source of nutrients for the plants in the area.

However, if the soil has gone through cycles of planting and harvesting already, then it has been stripped of all the nutrients it can give.

At Art Knapp Garden Centre we have many different fertilizers to suit your needs including liquid fertilizers, inorganic, plant specific, grass, lawn or soil fertilizer and time release fertilizers with pesticides.

Let our team of experts assist you in your needs.

Water Gardening

Water adds an appealing element to any garden. Water gardens can include fountains, waterfalls, small ponds and elaborate combinations of rockwork and lighting. Basically, a water garden is just a pool of water that is home to plants and possibly fish and other water creatures. Natural ponds or large spaces are no longer needed for a water garden. They can consist of a concrete dish, half barrel, plastic tub or anything else that can hold water. We carry a variety of Aquascaping materials including pumps, filters, pond liners, water plants and much more.
