    Hi Everyone,

    We're Kim's Nature, a garden centre and aquarium store in Markham, Ontario.

    We've been in the plant business for almost 15 years now but have recently decided to dabble in dart frogs.
    While we're still learning, it's our hope that you'll find something you'll like on a visit.

    We carry:
    Fruit flies
    Isopods
    Springtails
    Oak leaves
    Tree fern fibre and tree fern fibre boards
    Fir bark
    Driftwood
    A whole bunch of plants that work in frog tanks and terrariums

    Great place with friendly staff and healthy plants, every time I've gone there I've left with something.

    I've yet to make it out there, but I hear good things, including from the local aquarium community.

    If you ever come up that far I am just 5 min. north of them. Please drop by for a chat and see my collection of broms got over 500 now with pups included. Close to 150 pots. Will also show you my frogs.

    Yes great place. I have known Kim for 25+ years. Good people and very helpful.

    Ron.

    I see you have bonsai!
    Maybe you can help steer me in the right direction with my Live Oak 'bonsai' project.

    I should come have a look at your store - looks nice.

    Just paid Kim's Nature a visit on recommendation from this board! The service was terrific, with the sales person (didn't catch his name) giving lots of friendly, helpful advice. Can't recommend more!

    I've dealt with them twice so far - fantastic help and service, and great selection of plants and moss!

    I have to say we are now a huge fan of Kim's Nature. We drove an hour and a half, it was so worth it. Kim and her husband are very friendly an extremely passionate about their plants and business. We have been to about a dozen other stores, nothing else compares to Kim's Nature, the selection and prices were fantastic. The best part is how much information you get when you ask a question, the store was busy and they were both very patient and helpful to everyone. We can't wait to go back! Thank you Kim and Eddy, you do a fantastic job! We Will be back! I'm loving my pitcher plant. I've never seen one for sale, only in pictures, I had to get one!

    Kim's Nature is a must see! We stopped by after the expo today. Wing(sp?) was very knowledgeable & friendly. Got some great bromilides for my tanks & a few other things. Can't wait to go back again next time I'm in the city! My R. nominal immitators are already appreciating their new broms ;)

    Hi Stephwrigs, thanks for dropping in. I'm glad we were able to help you out and that your frogs like their new plants! And yes, it's Wing. See you next time.

    Hi Lajeunesse,
    No I will not be going to the Montreal expo. It's a bit far for me.
    But if there are plants or supplies you're looking for, I can always mail them to you, provided it's not too cold outside.
