A Message to our customers

Stonegate Gardens has been entrusted to the Mezitt Family of Weston Nurseries

A Note from Bruce MacDowell:

Twenty-Five years ago, my wife Lynne and I opened Stonegate Gardens. Together we built it from the ground up, sharing our love, passion and appreciation for the great outdoors with the community.


As many of you know, Lynne passed away on March 19, 2023. Stonegate Gardens’ success is greatly attributed to Lynne’s commitment to customer service and her unique ability to “bring the outdoors in”, regardless of the season. She incorporated elements of nature with everyday business, creating an environment that resonated with customers.


After much heartfelt thought, an arrangement has been made with our friends, Karen and Peter Mezitt of Weston Nurseries, to operate the garden center. The Mezitt Family has a long and successful history of running Weston Nurseries for over 100 years, making them a well-established and experienced family in the nursery and garden center business. The decision to entrust Stonegate Gardens to the Mezitt Family is rooted in their multi-generational wisdom and expertise in the industry.


The transition, set to take effect on January 1, 2024, involves the rebranding of Stonegate Gardens to Weston Nurseries. This change will bring new opportunities and services, while maintaining the essence of what has made Stonegate Gardens successful over the years.


I would like to thank all of our loyal customers for their support, patronage and friendship. Lynne & Bruce MacDowell
