Setting your Gardening Goals for 2021? Be sure to check out our latest post on the 'Get Growing' blog section on this site!
Farming has always been our shared passion, so when we decided to ‘go all in’ and ‘make something happen’, we settled on growing a tomato that tastes like ‘summer’, yet available from April to November. Thus our farm vision was realized with the construction of our hydroponic greenhouse and farm store located just north of Hwy 401 in Kingston, Ontario, back in 2002.
We learned quickly that we needed to give our visitors more reasons to ‘stop’ and so we added more greenhouse space to grow top quality annuals and perennials for the home gardener.
Today, Sun Harvest has become the home of Kingston’s favourite tomatoes and the leading garden centre destination in the region. Our goal is to provide an exceptional experience for our visitors by delivering on our promise of the freshest, tastiest greenhouse and farm fresh produce and sharing our love of plants with gardeners of all types.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
Greg and Allison Shannon
CARE TIP OF THE WEEK:
Site plants in the brightest light location that you have. Let's face it, even that direct light spot that you dare not place a neon pothos in front of for 3/4 of the year is a dark place in winter. Light intensity is low at this time of year so to keep your plants as active as possible, site them in any south /west/east facing location you have.
Getting ready to grow your favourite tomatoes!
The gardens outside may be deep in their winter slumber , but we are busy getting the last minute jobs done before we plant out tomatoes in our hydroponic growing zone.
You can bet our trademark beefsteak tomatoes, Sweetelle grape tomatoes and confetti mix are going to be planted in these rows as well as our crunchy and juicy cucumbers. We can't wait to bring in the bees again to start pollinating, pruning flower clusters, removing leaves and all that plant work fun that ultimately sets us up for a multi season harvest starting in mid March.
LOVE YOUR LETTUCE!!
Greg has been working on renovating our new lettuce growing space for months and we cannot wait to share this exciting new way of growing with you!
The best part of this expansion is that it will provide you with big, beautiful, tender, fresh Sun Harvest lettuce YEAR ROUND!
