Let’s Get Gardening!

omorrow, Saturday, May 11th, Dalrymple’s Green-
house will officially open their doors for another sea-

This will be the 31st year for Dalrymple’s Green-


house. Alan and Barb Dalrymple decided to open shop
in 1988 so Barb could work from home and be able to as-
sist Alan with farm duties and raise their children. What
started off as a little greenhouse has grown into a beauti-

Bowlers Earn ful business and career.


The greenhouse is open each year from Mother’s Day

Gold
weekend until they run out of stock or July 1st, which-

ever comes first. Even though the business itself is only
open to the public for a short time each year, Barb, Alan
and staff are busy for most of the year preparing. Seed-
ing starts in February, and then after the business closes,
they move into clean-up, fixing and ordering new stock
for next year.
The husband and wife team joke that they make the
perfect pair as Barb likes customers and bookwork and
Alan likes growing and building/creating. Whatever their
secret, they sure have made a name for themselves. The
greenhouse has become a local favourite to many and a
tourist attraction for people visiting the area. “Some peo-
ple come every week to look around, some come more.
We have many locals who bring visitors out every time

Crawley’s they visit. It’s so great to see so many wonderful people


each season,” explained Barb.
