An exclusive partner of The Home Depot Canada for more than 25 years, Jeffery’s Greenhouses is a leading grower supplying bedding plants, containers and seasonal potted plants based in the Niagara Region. With over 1 million square feet of growing space at two facilities in St. Catharine’s and Jordan, Ontario, the Jeffery family is proud to be celebrating its 90th year with the third generation running the business today.
The critical player in Jeffery’s water conservation efforts is the use of rainwater for irrigation, which they rely on to water their plants. Rainwater is collected from greenhouse roofs and stored in a large holding tank. As this is the main water source for their crops, it must be managed daily within the facility.
