About Jardin Buzz - Qui le Buzz?

Jardin Buzz s'engage à créer des jardins urbains exubérants pour les pollinisateurs, avec des graines, des plantes adaptées aux pollinisateurs et des services de conception de jardins.

L'état de nos pollinisateurs est triste, perplexe et déprimant, mais faire partie de la solution peut être incroyablement amusant, facile et gratifiant. 

Nous cultivons de nombreux types de plantes indigènes afin que vous puissiez avoir trois saisons de fleurs. Les plantes indigènes sont des plantes vivaces qui nécessitent peu de soins et sont les meilleures pour nos pollinisateurs. 

La mission de sensibilisation de Jardin Buzz est axée sur la promotion des asclépiades indigènes au Québec, des plantes nécessaires à la survie des monarques. Notre objectif? Que chacun ait un carré d’asclépiade! 

Nous proposons des ateliers sur la stratification à froid des graines (nécessaire pour la plupart des plantes indigènes), la propagation de l'asclépiade, la collecte de graines d'asclépiade et la conception de jardins pour pollinisateurs.

Jardin Buzz offre tous les ingrédients nécessaires pour transformer une parcelle de gazon monoculture, une ruelle ou un balcon en un lieu bourdonnant de fleurs!


Jardin Buzz is dedicated to building exuberant, urban pollinator gardens. We provide Montreal-grown seeds, pollinator-friendly plants and design expertise. Jardin Buzz is based in Verdun and is a proud new member of Grand Potager. 

The state of our pollinating insects is sad, perplexing and depressing, but being part of the solution can be incredibly fun, easy and rewarding. 

We grow many types of native species so you can have three stunning seasons of flowers. Native plants are low-maintenance, perennial and the best for our pollinators. Jardin Buzz’s outreach focuses on promoting native milkweeds to Quebec, the plants necessariy for monarch survival.

Our goal is for everyone to have a milkweed patch! We offer workshops on cold seed stratification (needed for most native plants), seed starting, milkweed propatation and pollinator garden design.

Jardin Buzz offers everything you need to take a patch of monoculture grass, your alley or balcony and get it buzzing with blooms!
