Greenland Garden Centre Embraces the Tropics With Their New Indoor Garden



Mid to late January and through February you can take a short drive to Sherwood Park to visit the tropics at Greenland Garden Centre.


Family owned, Greenland Garden Centre has made a tradition of installing a large garden space each winter following the take down of the famous Christmas store.  This year one of the business partners, a different partner from the previous couple of years, decided to take the garden in a new direction and it is a beautiful relaxing oasis of a success!  With soft music playing in the background, one can take a seat at one of a few bistro tables nearby and just soak in the tropics.  No sunscreen necessary.  It's the perfect break from the cold winter and you don't need a plane ticket either!

Visit last year's garden Greenland Inspiration which featured an Asian inspired garden.
