Our History & Greenthumbs
Welcome to Salisbury, a premier Edmonton greenhouse and one of Alberta’s largest full-service garden centres. We are a third-generation family business that has proudly served the Edmonton area since 1965 with a broad selection of garden supplies, tools and plants. Open 12 months a year, we grow our own annuals, veggies, herbs, and most of our perennials on over four acres of greenhouse space.
The Sproule family started Salisbury Greenhouse and Landscaping 45 years ago. Helen Sproule initially grew bedding plants in the garage as a hobby in 1965. She soon realized she had too many for her own use and began selling them to the neighbours. Three short years later, Fred Sproule left his full-time job to work with his wife in the family business. All of Helen and Fred’s six children helped out in the business. Bob Sproule, their oldest son, came to work full-time at the greenhouse in 1975. Salisbury Greenhouse began operating year-round in the 1970s and early 1980s.
Originally located in a rural area of the county, Salisbury Greenhouse is now surrounded by Sherwood Park city lots and acreages. Since the 1990s, it has become known for its exceptional home-grown quality, staff expertise, and innovative styles. In 2006, Bob’s three sons bought into the company, so now there are 4 owners. With so much energy and youth focused on the business, it’s going to be an exciting time to come!
Gardening is about community. With our gardening classes & workshops and special events, you can learn from and be inspired by other gardeners.
