H. Alkema Greenhouses

Grimsby, Ontario

Company History:

In 1961, the Alkema family realized their dream of establishing a flower business here in Canada. A grower from Harlingen, The Netherlands, Hendrick Alkema worked diligently to provide customers with quality plants, excellent service and an old-world grower's touch. The original business was located in Burlington, Ontario, but moved later to its current location in Grimsby in 1972.

As the business has passed through the generations - to his son Clarence and now onto his grandchildren - Henrick's legacy still carries on today. The same passion for growing and dedication to hard work is evident in the quality products we produce today.

What We Do:

Today H. Alkema Greenhouses specializes in growing quality bedding plants to major retailers and other local retail providers. We provide retailers with a comprehensive program for annuals, hanging baskets and planters as well as spectacular poinsettias at the Christmas time.
