Nature in the city

Water, the source of beauty

Water droplets that fall on the ground allow seeds to germinate and produce plants that beautify the environment, providing pleasure for the eyes and happiness for the heart.

Throughout their lifetime, plants capture carbon and release oxygen into the air. However, these beneficial environmental properties are surpassed by the loveliest gift that nature can offer: beauty.

With their diversity and originality of shapes and their vast range of colours flowers and leaves provide a marvellous spectacle – varied, elegant, beautiful, gracious, charming, ravishing and essential to the quality of life.

Thanks to all these water droplets, day by day we can gaze at the rich beauty of our planet. We must work day in, day out to spread the beauty of the plants while protecting water, a resource that is so important to the,

Beautiful food from the Earth

As well as beautifying our environment, nature nourishes and cares for us. It gives us “fuel” to regain our daily strength, while also nourishing the soul.

Before turning fruits and vegetables into energy, we need to marvel at their beauty. How can we not be moved by the roundness of a tomato, the long lines of a cucumber, the tenderness of a lettuce leaf, the scent of mint, basil or lemon, the colours of an apple,

Growing these vegetables yourself, in an urban container garden or a large country garden, is seeing them in their natural setting… and rediscovering their beauty.

Quebec’s ornamental horticulture business strive on a daily basis to offer high-quality seeds and plants which, after a stint in the garden, move on to enhance and adorn our best dishes.

Comforting trees

When at the height of summer, the sun is blasting its burning rays, what can be more comforting that to seek refuge under a tree. Not just for its spreading branches – also called its canopy – protecting us from the rays of the sun, but also for the moisture from its transpiration, which is refreshing.

Trees have many benefits: they smooth out climatic extremes, diminish the effects or urban heat islands, reduce atmospheric and noise pollution, attract birds, etc. The trees add character and value to homes and shops. Downtown as well as in the suburbs, they are essential to the quality of life.

To plant a tree – or better yet, several – is to protect nature from upheavals while enjoying their comforting soothing presence.

Quebec’s ornamental plant producers work hard to offer high-quality trees that will bring benefits and comfort for many years.
