April 19, B.C. –  FireSmart BC announced that it has launched a virtual FireSmart landscaping hub and plant program in over 30 garden centres across the province in an effort to help British Columbians make informed choices about how to manage their lawns and gardens and increase their resilience to wildfire.

The online FireSmart landscaping hub is a comprehensive place for learning about fire-resistant vegetation and landscaping practices, featuring an interactive fire-resistant plants tool, downloadable landscaping guide, as well as a list of the participating Garden Centres. The in-store plant program visually shows gardeners which plants are considered more fire-resistant at the point of purchase through visible tags and signage.
