Who We Are

Horse Lake Garden Centre is the largest Nursery in the South Cariboo region.  We serve a wide area from Williams Lake to Clinton with many customers coming from even further afield.  Our main facility is located in Lone Butte, an easy 10 minute drive from 100 Mile House.  We also operate satellite locations during the season in Williams Lake adjacent to the Home Hardware Store and in 100 Mile at the Ace Hardware store.   Satellite stores usually open by the Mothers’ Day weekend.


What We Do

We carry an extensive range of annuals, perennials, shrubs and trees, all suited to the Cariboo climate.  In addition we carry soils, fertilizers, landscaping materials, pond supplies, seeds, garden tools and equipment.  In fact, most everything you will need for the gardening season and our knowledgeable staff will be happy to assist you to make your garden a success.

Want your baskets and containers custom planted?  We can do that!  Or choose from our colourful selection of pre-planted containers and hanging baskets.

Our Story

Roger and Marcia Stratton are seasoned business people who lived on the coast but loved coming up to their cabin on Green Lake in their spare time.  In fact, they loved the area so much that they decided to pursue business opportunities in the 100 Mile House region.  Horse Lake Garden Centre was a perfect fit.  However, they didn’t want to run an “average” garden centre so they have strived to make it a “destination” Garden Centre.  They offer a beautiful sitting area by the pond, a huge variety of plants, garden supplies and a large gift shop filled with “hand-picked” items by Marcia.

The Strattons are strong believers in their community and support a number of local charities and community events.
