About Us

J. M. Peeters Nurseries Ltd. is a family-owned wholesale nursery in operation since 1971.

John and Marian established J.M. Peeters Nurseries Ltd. shortly after John immigrated to Canada from Holland. The company was first located on the shores of Lake Ontario. In order to accommodate the growth of the business, John and Marian relocated to North Pelham, in the Niagara Peninsula, where they now grow nursery stock on over 160 acres.

Located within a 500 mile radius of Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Boston and New York, the Niagara Peninsula offers ideal growing conditions for a variety of plants.

The property includes 50 acres of polyhouses and 40,000 square feet of greenhouses and propagating houses. The majority of plants sold are those that have been propagated and grown on the property, ensuring both quality and hardiness of the plant material.

J.M. Peeters Nurseries Ltd. employs 12 full-time staff and 44 seasonal employees.

With the help of his hard-working staff, John has refined his craft over the last 38 years and has developed an expertise in growing a range of high-quality nursery products. These include approximately 400 different varieties of shade trees, flowering trees, standards, evergreens, broadleaf evergreens, shrubs, and bareroot evergreen liners.

“Our mission is to produce high quality plant material. Every order receives our undivided attention to ensure that you receive the best possible products”. (John Peeters)
