Who We Are

First and foremost, we are a group of people who share a passion for plants, and a relentless drive to delight our customers by being the best at what we do.

Valleybrook Gardens was started by John & Kelly Schroeder in 1980 with nothing more than a dream, a few thousand cuttings and an overdrawn credit card. Today, our team consists of expert growers, customer focused sales reps and territory managers, and a committed team of managers, supervisors and staff. Our two nursery sites employ up to two hundred staff each spring, producing and delivering millions of plants in a range of over 2,000 varieties.

Our original nursery site in Abbotsford, British Columbia serves the Northwest USA and Western Canada. Ontario, Eastern Canada, the Northeast USA and the Mid-Atlantic region is served by our nursery situated near Niagara Falls and the lovely town of Niagara-on-the-Lake.
