The Lake of Bays Garden Centre (formerly Dwight Garden Centre) has been serving customers since 2001 and has grown over the years to include several complementary ventures. With owner Linda Boothby at the helm, along with her daughter Emily, the garden centre’s operations now include Muskoka Flowers, Clark’s on Main, and new this year, Din’s Fresh Fries.

The garden centre offers a huge selection of top-quality herbs and vegetables, annual and perennial plants, shrubs, trees, in addition to bulk soils, mulches, and aggregates for pick up or delivery. Stop by to browse the vast greenhouses as well as home and cottage décor, fashion, and fresh cut flowers. At Muskoka Flowers, Emily and her team create stunning custom arrangements for all occasions and offer lovely premade hand-tied bouquets and vase arrangements.

New this year, Linda has opened a food truck! Din’s Fresh Fries features fresh cut fries, poutine, hot dogs and sausage and Jamie’s famous Smashburger. The Smashburgers and deep-fried cheesecake with homemade caramel sauce are getting rave reviews. Watch for their specials on social media!

Linda and her sister Donna also operate a retail venture in Dorset. Clark’s on Main is your one-stop-shop for unique gifts, jewellery and accessories, clothing, home décor, and more. Pick up a beautiful bouquet from Muskoka Flowers or some organic sourdough bread and classic French pastries by the Oxtongue Baker.
