I'm going to be leaving Vancouver early on a Saturday morning in two weeks. I'd like to pick up some plants on the way home to save myself some money on shipping. Is there anywhere that has a good selection and good prices that is open early and easy to find for an out-of-towner?
I know Aquariums West opens up at 10, anywhere open at 9 or 9:30?

Aquaflora out of Abbotsford is a nursery that grows most of what all of the LFS around here sell. You can usually make arrangements with the owner and meet him to buy plants. Check it out at www.aquafloranurseries.com Very nice stuff!
DEFINITELY good plants there. No chance of snails the way they are cultured. Tim is a great guy on top of having quality product.

You can buy your plants on Saturday and keep them in water overnight. However, if you're planning to take them across a border, you might want to check that live plants are permitted. Are you flying to England?

Thanks folks, I actually bought some ferts from Aquaflora not too long ago. I see that they have their plants up on the online store, so I might just get some shipped. I don't want to have to get someone to come in early or make a special trip for me - I don't know if we'll actually make it there or not!

I don't know what I'll be coming home to - tanks are in the care of my SIL, who knows nothing about aquaria...maybe they'll all be toast when I get back!

Best of luck man. Worst case scenario, you can buy some new plants and have planted tank, lol :S
