Green thumbs across Central Alberta are itching to get planting, and Glow Gardens Red Deer is now open to fill your garden, porch or balcony with lush greenery and bright flowers!
“Gardeners want to know exactly where their plants come from, which is why we’re excited to welcome shoppers right inside our greenhouses this year,” says Daryl Driegen, Director of Operations at Glow Gardens Centre.
Glow Gardens Centre has seven locations across Alberta, including at 27031-1 Township Road 400 in Blackfalds, formerly known as Central Alberta Greenhouse. With a sprawling 10 acres of temperature-controlled growing space, there’s a massive selection of hanging baskets, bedding plants, potted vegetables and perennials for you to choose from.
“We’ve adapted the space to create a fully functioning seasonal garden centre, where you’re welcome to explore and see how all your favourite plants are grown,” Driegen says.
- Hanging Baskets: Glow Gardens Centre is one of the largest producers of hanging baskets in Western Canada, which means they can offer their direct-from-the-greenhouse selection at incredibly low prices. “It’s our Number One most popular item, and we offer the best value for our customer — they’re quality, vibrant plants at some of the best prices you’re going to find,” Driegen says.
- Bedding plants and potted vegetables: Browse the aisles of the Glow Gardens Centre to choose from an incredible selection of bedding plants and potted vegetables grown right here in Alberta.
- Perennials: Annuals are grown in Alberta, and Glow Gardens Red Deer will also offer a rotating selection of perennials. “Alberta’s climate isn’t ideal for starting perennials in winter, so we’ll be bringing in a selection of perennials grown in BC to supplement the greenhouse plants,” Driegen.
