Our History

 Harper’s Garden Centre began, in 1948, as a small farm and farmers market owned by our founders, Bruce and Ruth Harper, after Bruce returned from World War II. As our family grew so did the farm from animals and produce to a small seasonal garden centre. Bruce was a perfectionist and we became known for excellence in quality gardening products and services which we still strive for today. In the 1970’s, David Harper after graduating from Guelph University, joined Bruce and Ruth Harper and a major expansion began which continues today. When David retired in 2008 to begin a new career in Ottawa, Ontario growing organic vegetables Craig and Nancy took over the reins in the day to day running of Harper’s Garden Centre. As we enter the 21st century things sure have changed in retail for independent garden centres, but our commitment to QUALITY, SERVICE & SELECTION has not wavered from our 1948 beginning.
