About Us

Growers of Quality Plants Since 1980

We are a gardener's paradise located in the quaint historic village of Alton, Ontario. As a small family-run business, we are dedicated to growing and selling the best quality and selection of plants available to our customers.

Come meander through our two acres of greenhouses bursting with thousands of top-quality annuals, vegetables, herbs, tropicals, perennials, vines, trees, and shrubs. Our huge selection includes our 15000 sq ft. perennial house alone!

Ask our customers what we are known for, and they would be quick to say "their baskets" -- they are outdone by none. Huge gushing baskets in colour combinations that please the eye, and plants that are compatible. Designed for sun or shade.

Quality you can trust and knowledge that 41 years and 4 generations in the business of growing can assure you of the right information to make your gardening endeavours successful.

Our History

In 1967, Bill (at the ripe age of 15) decided he was going to follow in his Fathers’ family's footsteps in the greenhouse industry by buying, dismantling and storing the 20,000 sq. foot greenhouse from the Historical Cal-Dale Greenhouse Estate in Brampton, Ontario.

In 1980, Bill’s dream of owning his own greenhouse business came to fruition after he and his wife, Cindy, rebuilt the greenhouses in Alton, Ontario some 12 years later.

Alton Greenhouses, once a thriving wholesale business that catered to garden centres, fruit markets and a variety of chain stores, both in Canada and the United States, now is a Retail Garden Centre. GROWING FOR YOU SINCE 1980 has been our slogan for over 37 years since our first plants appeared on our front lawn for sale with a money collection jar. Many of our first customers can attest to that!

Our Family is always excited to embrace the new season. Seeding, planting and growing the large quantity and variety of plants needed for the season. Our three girls Candice, Jasmine, and Billie-Jo share our passion for horticulture. Having been raised in and around the greenhouses, their love of plants and the changing needs of our customers keep them enthusiastic about the newest varieties of plants and hottest new items for the garden. To our joy, we now watch the third generation, our grandchildren, playing in the greenhouses and interacting with the customers much the same way our own children did — hopefully, a sign of another generation to continue on.
