I took advantage of a snow day to visit some of our local green houses and to drop off tree care information for their clients. County Blooms opened for the 2013 season this week.

Country Blooms, which is located on Broxburn Road, 5 km east of Lethbridge on Highway 3 and 1 mile South. Formerly known as Dyck’s Greenhouse, Country Blooms Garden Centre has been serving and helping southern Albertans with their garden interests since 2007.

Erich Dyck and his staff were busily unpacking gift ware and garden decorations and setting out tender new plants. The owner of Country Blooms Garden Centre, Erich graduated from Olds College in 1980 with a diploma in Horticulture specializing in Greenhouse and Landscape Management. He has been a speaker at many horticultural club meetings. His staff are eager to help you find a plant to suit whatever space you have.

Won’t look empty for long

Watering the tender new plants

They specialize in annuals and perennials, beautiful hanging baskets and veggies. They do bring in a small assortment of trees and shrubs each season.

Another feature about their location is they are located adjacent to Broxburn Vegetables and Cafe. They grow vine ripened tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers. A remodelled barn acts as both a produce counter and a cafe. Their website includes an availability list for fresh produce grown year round. They have a great photo gallery of their facilities and offerings.

The café is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm October to March. Café hours for April to September are Monday to Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm. Lunch is served from 11 am to 3 pm.

Their produce is also available at the Lethbridge Farmers Market
