COVID-19 and Our Greenhouse Season
The Greenhouse is now closed until the Fall
When we started placing our orders for seeds and seedlings last fall, we had no idea that we would be going into our busy spring season in the midst of a worldwide event the likes of which few, if any, of us had ever experienced. The past few months were among the most difficult we've yet experienced, as we navigated the many challenges of Covid. However, we were immeasurably grateful to be able to offer our plants to you with curbside pickup, and we want to say THANK YOU to everyone who supported us this year.
Although the greenhouse is closed for a few months, we'll be offering On Farm Pickup of our Fresh Vegetables and Cut Flowers. We'll see you in a few months for Fall Mums and then Winter Urns.
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 two 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 of setup to grow every single plant that we'd like to (trust me, we've tried!).
Our On Farm Spring Sales are finished. We'll see you again in a few months for Fall Plants and then Winter Urns.
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 2020 are:
Friday, May 15th to Monday May, 18th
Friday, May 22nd to Sunday, May 24th
Friday May 29to to Sunday, May 31st
Friday, June 5th to Sunday, June 7th
During the season, we'll bring a selection of our transplants to the Stayner Farmers' Market on Thursdays from 5-8:30pm.
And we offer fall sales of mums and mixed fall planters in September and October.
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!
