Today is the last day we are open for retail sales. Final cleanup starts next week along with all the other things that we couldn’t get to while minding the store. It was a very interesting year, to say the least. Our staff had to cope with masks in the heat and humidity of our growing environment and the uneasiness of the whole COVID thing. It screwed up so many things in our supply chain but vendors did their best and customers understood. Sure hope that 2022 is a year that resembles normal. Thanks for supporting us, we really enjoy seeing everyone and look forward to it again! Cam and Judy
We are planning to open for sales on May 6th. We will start taking orders via email and phone for pickup and delivery options at the start of the week (May 4th). We have a number of additional tasks to tend to this year so please be patient as we find time to work thru phone messages and emails.
We had hoped the virus issues would of passed by the time the greenhouse doors open for sales. While Central Alberta is doing very well compared to other areas of Canada and the rest of the world, the risk is still out there and we are adapting to make your visit to the greenhouse as safe and stress free as we can. When we open for spring sales in May, the following options will be available for you:
- Safe pickup at our greenhouse – call us, email your order in and then pickup at a scheduled time. We will bring your order to your vehicle if necessary. Payment will be made via our online payment system prior to pickup or in person.
- Delivery to your home – call us, email your order in and then we will deliver to you. Deliveries will typically take place on Fridays and some weekends. Some limitation will apply for travel distance from the greenhouse but towns and villages in our shopping area will be elgible, Payment will be made via our online payment system prior to delivery.
- Shop in person – We will provide a safe shopping enviroment, in compliance with social distancing and disinfecting policies as directed by Alberta Health. We will limit the number of the patrons in the greenhouse at any given time to allow you to shop and feel comfortable while you’re here.
- On-Line shopping- E-Gift cards and plastic gift cards are now available at our on-line store.
We have added the ablity for our clients to purchase gift certificates for friends and family thru our new on line store . It works pretty slick, you pick the gift amount and email it to the recipient. The certificate can be used for purchases made in person or for items ordered for safe pickup or delivery services.

It’s amazing how quickly another greenhouse season comes around! The first planting of seeds are germinating and starting to poke up out of the planting trays. It won’t be long and the heat will be on in the big greenhouses and our staff will be working away while they enjoy the heat of the spring sunshine.
I’ll get our “What’s new” page updated shortly as we introduce new varieties. Some very interesting colour combinations this year.
For those of you who don’t get to work and live in the big warm plastic bubble, hang in there, springs just around the corner and another great year of planting and growing your favourite flowers and vegetables.
Another year of sales at the greenhouse has come to an end. June 27th is the last day of scheduled sales and the gates will be closed for a while we get caught up on all the things we can’t do when we are “minding the store”. Thanks to everyone who came by and supported our small family business and of course, a very special thanks to our awesome staff who make it all come together. I hope the rains keep up for a while as its just been too dry around here for way too long.
The saskatoon crop looks like a great pick this year, we’ll let you know when it ready to go.
Happy growing and see you soon.
