B.C.  Greenhouse  Builders

The Copper Leaf Garden Store
Although Stokes is still a principal supplier of commercial truck farmers and greenhouse growers in Canada and Northeastern U.S.A., they have attracted more than 240,000 home gardeners as loyal customers, who appreciate "the same seed as the professionals use", at reasonable prices from the over 3,000 varieties offered. They issue three regional catalogs free of charge-a Canadian, American and French version for French speaking Canada. The prices are straightforward, (the more you buy, the better the price), so that home gardeners and growers may choose a packet or 1,000 pounds of seed from the same book.

Quality greenhouse kits and greenhouses for home and commercial use.
Greenhouses to suit every budget, climate and crop - from B.C. Greenhouse Builders, the leading manufacturer of glass or polycarbonate greenhouses and greenhouse kits. Owned by Henry and Greta Heinen, what sets B.C.
Greenhouses apart is the high engineering standards they use to provide structural strength in the greenhouse design. This structural strength was required to support hanging baskets, lighting and shelving and withstand all climatic conditions. The B.C. Greenhouse structure is further unique because of its modular and adaptable design. "The Gardeners' Choice since 1951"
