We will keep this website up until the subscription runs out so that our customers can still access the pond and plant information. Some links may be broken.


An hour east of Toronto, nestled in the beautiful Northumberland Hills lies Burns Water Gardens. Walk among the fountains and ponds surrounded by native trees, wildflowers and birds while you enjoy the vivid waterlilies and gliding fish. Stroll around the half acre main pond and see over 100 varieties of waterlilies in bloom - the most spectacular waterlily display in Canada!

We are an aquatic plant nursery located in Baltimore, Ontario, Canada. We carry a full range of pond supplies including liners, pumps, fountains, pond accessories, ceramic containers, tabletop fountains, goldfish and pond plants. Cattails, water iris, lotus, sweetflag, waterlilies and bullrushes are just a few of the aquatic plants we carry. Just wait until you see our water hyacinths!

This site is full of photos of garden ponds, fish and waterlilies, from our nursery, our customers and around the world. We also have lots of information for those thinking of installing a pond, waterfall or stream and advice for those that may have problems with their ponds. Check out What's New for information on upcoming free seminars and news in water gardening. So, please browse, enjoy, and if you have some comments, tell us... we value your input!
