Who We Are

Gardener's Kit is operated by Susanne Osmond, a working gardener and garden designer from Victoria, BC. 

While taking gardening courses and doing work practicums in England, she discovered some impressive gardening tools that she’d never seen for sale in Canada:  Hasegawa tripod ladders, Niwaki’s range of Japanese secateurs, and Sneeboer’s hand-forged garden tools.

She returned home with great bundles of gardening tools, tracked down some Hasegawa ladders in the US and, after test-driving all her goodies for a few months, figured that other
Canadian gardeners might also be excited about these specialty tools. Thus, Gardener’s Kit was born!

Gardener’s Kit has grown over the past five years from a part-time, back-yard operation to an online tool shop with an extensive tool selection and two retail showrooms – one in Victoria, which is also HQ, and a new one in Vancouver. We sell tools across Canada and the US, and occasionally further afield.

Bronwyn Abbott does a stellar job of managing the Victoria warehouse and keeps the website operating smoothly.

Stop by either of our showrooms to see and handle our full range of tools and ladders in person.

Vancouver:  418 East Kent Ave. S., Unit 121 (Main & Marine)

Victoria:  169 Langford St., Bay Bridge Complex (Vic West)
