The Garden Gift Shop
The MUN Botanical Garden Gift Shop features an assortment of unique gifts including a variety of locally made items. Like our colorful and diverse flower gardens, our Gift Shop is a creative venue for beautiful gift ideas as well as for the talent and craftsmanship of many local artists and companies.
We carry Newfoundland-made soaps, bath salts, bath blasts and natural insect repellent as well as jams, jellies, chocolates, jewellery, ornaments, candles, wind chimes and garden tools and accessories.
The Gift Shop also boasts a wide selection of note cards and prints by local painters and photographers, wood crafts, picture frames, children's toys, and quality garden and nature-themed T-Shirts. A side variety of gardening and nature books are available, including many local authors. In addition, there are many souvenirs perfect for all our visitors.
Fresh garden produce from our vegetable garden and greenhouse are also available throughout the growing season. The Friends of the Garden maintain a supply of beautiful dried flowers for sale.
