It was working in a greenhouse during summers while in university that I first discovered my love of growing and tending flowers. Although our setup is not what you might call fancy (we use a sauna as a germination chamber and some basic hoophouses assembled by family and friends), we manage to grow a startlingly wide array of plants: annuals, perennials, vegetable and herb transplants, as well as hanging baskets and planters. We start many of our plants from seed or from small "plugs" which we are lucky enough to be able to source from Ontario growers within an hour or so of us. We also bring in a carefully curated selection of annuals, perennials and shrubs from Ontario growers, in order to increase what we can offer you, and because we don't have the space or setup to grow every single plant that we'd like to (trust me, we've tried!).
Spring Sale Days on the Farm
Every spring we get excited to throw open our (figurative) farm doors to welcome old and new customers to our Spring Sales on the farm. We host four (long) weekends of sales starting Victoria Day weekend, where we invite you to wander our outdoor and indoor displays, soak in the colours and hopefully discover some new treasures.
Our Sale weekends for 2022 are:
Friday May 13th to Sunday, May 15th (Weather Dependent)
Friday, May 20th to Monday, May 23rd
Friday, May 27th to Sunday, May 29th
Friday June 3rd to Sunday, June 5th
*Note: In person Shopping will depend on provincial and health unit restrictions, and we will be following all mandated and suggested guidelines.

We offer fall sales of mums and mixed fall planters in September and October. And we offer custom Winter Planters for pickup or delivery in November and December.
We also take custom orders! We will carefully select proper plants, plant and tend your hanging baskets, window boxes or containers for you. They'll grow in our greenhouse until you're ready to bring them home. If you're interested in this service, contact us to arrange a time to drop off your containers - the earlier, the better!
The Greenhouse is now CLOSED. See you again in a few months for our Spring Sale Days on the farm.
