About Made in the Shade Perennials Inc.

                                    Path Made in the Shade is a nursery dedicated to growing large, high quality perennials for both sun and shade. We like to think that Made in the Shade is a state of mind, not just the name of the company.
We invite you to come and explore the gardens, take time to look at the many varieties of plants, both perennial and otherwise, enjoy the birds, and perhaps simply enjoy an excursion to the country.

Made in the Shade serves both retail customers and landscapers at our convenient site or by delivery on larger orders. Our plants are specially selected to thrive in Eastern Ontario and all of our stock is grown on site.

Laura Tattersall is the founder and CEO of Made in the Shade Perennials Inc., established in 2006. She has more than 35 years of experience in professional horticulture in Eastern Ontario and Quebec, working in propagation, wholesale and retail on the supply side, and as a landscaper and designer.

Lynn Tattersall (daughter of Laura) re-joined the company in 2010,  as a full time employee. She first worked as a summer student in 2006. She has grown up around the horticulture business and is now taking on a challenging role at the nursery leading the production team, as well as helping with sales. Charles  (Lynn's husband) joined the team in 2014 and has quickly become invaluable on the production side of the business.

In 2015 Tia will be helping in a pinch, but her continuing amazing artwork is claiming more and more of her time. We are proud to help support her in her artistic work, and wish her our best for all she does in life.
