Meet the Team
Hi my name is Gord, I am the owner of Wildwood Outdoor Living! First opening our doors in 1979 as Cannor Nursery, we’ve been serving the Greater Victoria area for 40+ years. We’ve always been passionate about plants, but in 2007 when I took full ownership, our big vision began to change. I started working with Cannor in 1980, when I saw the potential to grow it into something more and this is how the Wildwood Outdoor Living Centre was born! No longer just a nursery, but instead an all-in-one stop for your outdoor living needs; including garden supplies, water features, landscape design & hot tubs.
