Spring Container Planting Course

Due to Covid19 the Spring Container Planting will not happen in 2021.  It is one of the most fun and best things we do here, helping the customer create the best containers ever.  First started in 1989 we have seen thousands of pots with happy customers, often the same folks year after year getting better and better at planting.  Introducing every generation to the idea of container design, and patio life.  We will hopefully be back in action running courses again in 2022.  However, for the 2021 spring season, starting in mid-April we will have our great staff here as normal to help you with getting started and choosing plants for your pots as normal in a safe outdoor area. To help our staff best help you, bring a photo of each container and the dimensions, please take notice of the sun and shade quantities for each container location. Please keep in mind Covid19 rules and regulations to allow everybody have a safe and happy shopping experience. No appointment necessary.

Cultivation of Art - Art Show

Hours: 9:00 – 5:00 - June 18, 19 and 20, 2021

art show imageIn the History of gardening in the 20th century the name most often cited is that of Gertrude Jekyll. Probably, we all know that she was one of the foremost gardeners of her time, but she was a skilled, trained artist, and channelled her love of colour into wonderful works of art. Miss Jekyll was not the first and will not be the last to arrive in the garden to let that garden tell its story onto the canvas. It is from this inspiration that Vale’s Greenhouse proudly presents “Cultivation of Art”.

Vale’s Greenhouse has teamed up with 40 local Alberta Artists. Every artist is looking for a place to display his or her work; Vale’s Greenhouse is always on the hunt for an interesting project.
