GGG Greenhouses

A hidden jewel in Amaranth!

These greenhouses are hidden at the end of a long driveway off of 4th line of Amaranth between 10 and 15 sideroad.

If you haven't already visited this greenhouse it is well worth the drive! All of their plants are grown in their greenhouses and the quality is obvious.

The first thing I seen when I walked in were these unique lettuce baskets. What a great idea!! So far we have had had salad from this basket for 4 meals. The basket is light so it is easy to move in and out during our "interesting" weather these days.

Do you love tomatoes and get frustrated that you have to wait for so long before you can enjoy one fresh from the vine? They have tomato plants that are ready to bloom for $15, a great deal! We are looking forward to some raw salsa and cherry tomatoes from ours. Here is a picture of my vegetable plant purchase.

Do you like eggplants? Tony has figured out how to grow them in our area, ask him how. He has a large selection of well established vegetable plants such as watermelon, squash, lettuce, herbs, peppers etc...

Are you looking for a coleus? They have the best selection I have seen so far in our area this year. They also have some gorgeous ivy's if you are looking for some shade plants and many other perennials.

I was happy to see my favourite annuals already in bloom and had to purchase a couple of them. The ganzia only opens its blooms in the sun, they don't like cloudy days - just like me! They look so nice in a window box or container and bring lots of colour to your garden, there are many different colours to pick from.

GGG Greenhouses generously offers the Horitcultural members a 10% discount, just remember to bring your member card. Bring a friend and visit this great greenhouse for a great selection of vegetables, annuals, perennials and shrubs.

They are open from 9 - 7, you can reach them at (519)942-4005 or at ggggreenhouses@sympatico.ca

Great selection and quality. Ask for advice as for what to buy depending on your sun exposure!
