I’ve done it! I’ve finally found a fiddle leaf fig tree in Vancouver.
After drooling about them on Instagram, Greg and I now have our very own.
Take a look:
Isn’t she a beaut? We happen to be Survivor fans and this season there’s a contestant named Figgy, so naturally we’ve nicknamed her as much.
We bought our tree at Maple Leaf Garden Centre in Lynn Valley, North Vancouver. The last few times I’ve stopped in they’ve had one or two on hand. This visit, they had one fiddle leaf fig tree (which we bought) and one fiddle leaf fig bush.
If you don’t live on the North Shore, it might be worth giving them a call in advance.
Address: 1343 Lynn Valley Road, North Vancouver
Hours: Monday-Saturday 9 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.; Sunday and Holidays 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
According to their website, there is a Maple Leaf Garden Centre in West Vancouver too. I’d wager a bet that they also carry fiddle leaf fig trees.
Address: 2558 Haywood Avenue, West Vancouver
Hours: Open 7 days a week 9 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Here’s for hoping I have a decent enough green thumb!
Do you have a fiddle leaf fig tree? What should I know about caring for it? Drop me a comment below.
