Burd-Kroft Propagation Inc. liners require one year to establish roots and growth, therefore wholesale customers are asked to order one year in advance. The due date assigned is based on the best time to make all varieties of cuttings. Some varieties need to be made in late June or early July. Burd-Kroft Propagation Inc. will make extra cuttings for all the varieties that have been ordered by customers, however, to increase the chance that everyone receives the plants that they want, customers are asked to order by the due date. A tentative availability is posted throughout the winter months of the surplus of liners.  Wholesale customers are welcome to order from the availability at any time throughout the year.  Plants will be shipped at the end of May (decrease chance of frost), however, if customers have heated greenhouses then there is a possibility of plants being shipped earlier.

The garden centre offers many varieties of vegetable plants, herbs, annuals, herbaceous perennials, flowering shrubs, evergreens and ornamental grasses from May-September. 

In November and December, the garden centre sells branches for making winter arrangements such as different colours of curly willow and dogwood branches in their natural colour. Different varieties of pussy willow and greens branches are also available.  Burd-Kroft garden centre also supplies pre-made winter urns, boxwood and cedar wreaths.
