CAN: Ontario Greenhouse Sees Expansion

Ontario’s newest vegetable plant propagation greenhouse has just doubled its growing space. Construction began on the brand-new, four-acre addition in spring 2015 and is now complete. The original greenhouses were built in 2013 by owners Adrian and Jodi Roelands. After only two years of production, the couple decided they needed more growing space. “We were turning away customers because we simply didn’t have enough space,” says Adrian Roelands, who is also the head grower. “There is a growing demand for top-quality plants, and growers realize we deliver a premium product.” The concrete flood floors in the expansion are constructed in the same preferred Dutch-style as the original space because of the superior hygiene and plant quality it produces. The latest growing space will be filled with plants grown for both existing customers and new customers. Limited space is still available for late winter and spring seeding. (Source: hortidaily.com)
