A message from the owner, Chris

After 50 years, Mom and Dad have finally made good on their threat to semi-retire. It has been my dream for a long time to operate the greenhouse and keep Johnston’s Greenhouse & Garden Centre a growing family business. Mom and Dad have graciously agreed to remain with the business for a period of years to help with the transition.

For all those people whose favourite question is “Where’s Charlie?,” the answer is still: Johnston’s Greenhouse. I look forward to seeing customers that I haven’t seen for a while, as well as meeting new faces. Maybe over time the question will change to “Where’s Chris?”
