Sheila’s Greenhouse is a small, family run, rural, farm greenhouse grower, offering spring season plants for sale. We started out very small and have grown each year increasing our product line and our customer base.
Our business offers floral and vegetable transplants for the home gardener. Our plants are grown on the farm, The Cape Bretoner’s Farm Gate, 945 Moscow Road, Yarker, ON and are available May to July for in person retail sales at McCormick’s Country Store in Camden East, ON where the Retail Outlet Greenhouse is located
We grow from seed, a wide variety of traditional bedding plants, perennials, popular vegetables and herbs. In addition, we have chosen a selection of plugs and popular “Proven Winners (PW)” products to grow. All the hanging baskets and containers are designed and planted at the farm and we are always willing to offer growing suggestions and advice for individual customer needs.
Sheila’s Greenhouse is passionate about growing happy, healthy, hardy plants on the farm. Our plants will love your garden -- planted with pride -- grown with strong family roots!”
Opened in 2004, Amherst Island’s Neilson Store Museum highlights artifacts from Island families and Island history since its first settlement in 1789, when it was originally named Isle Tonti. Items in the collection include the MV Amherst Islander’s ship’s wheel, bell, and logs. Designated under the Ontario Heritage Act, the Museum itself is also an exhibit having once been owned by James S. Neilson, an island grain merchant who opened his first general store in 1873, with the store remaining in the Neilson family for more than one hundred years. Light Refreshments after the talk.
