Measured Response to Help Flatten the Curve

Dear friends,

As we face this issue of coronavirus together in our community, we wanted to share a message with you to update you on what we’re doing here at Heeman’s and assure you our team is doing everything we can to continue to grow and care for the flowers, plants and berries you’ll look to us for this spring and summer.

As the situation evolves, your health and wellbeing and that of our Daymakers is our priority. We have made the very difficult decision to temporarily close our store to walk-in guests effective today, March 18thI can’t believe I’m having to write this as we prepare for spring, a time for getting outdoors and coming to the greenhouse. But, it’s an easy decision for us to make, putting the health of our staff and you, first.

However, at this moment Heeman’s mission to be your local connection to flowers, flavour and fun does not change. This is why effectively immediately we are launching two new initiatives, online shopping and curbside pick-up. Our team is working round the clock to add the plants, products and beverages you love from Heeman’s to our online store.

There you will be able to shop and purchase your spring plants, cider, seeds, soils, houseplants and more. Orders will be available for pick up in our parking lot or delivered to your door (within a service area). As you know, we have thousands of beautiful plants and products at Heeman’s. It will take time to add them to our online store – we appreciate your patience. We also have staff ready to assist via the phone (519-461-1416) to help you with purchases or answer any questions.


While many things have been postponed to cancelled, spring is not cancelled. Strawberry season, friends, is not cancelled. Our loyal growing team will continue their essential work growing the plants and berries we can’t wait to enjoy soon. Their vital work keeping the plants and produce we grow for you thriving is essential and we’re grateful for our amazing team! To protect our team at work, we’ve taken many steps to ensure their personal health. This includes restricting retail operations to reduce contact with others and enforcing social distancing, to separating their workstations across our 3-acre facility and of course, having hand sanitizing stations (and signage) throughout the greenhouse.

Now, as always, our team of Daymakers stand ready to help deliver the joy and tastes of spring and summer to our community. We look forward to serving you online (for now) and once again in-store when it’s deemed appropriate by our trusted local health authorities.

Take care, be well. Remember to check in with friends and loved ones. While many things may be closed or cancelled, hope is not cancelled. Gardening is not cancelled.

ps – if you’re one of our heroes on the front line of health care, thank you! Sending you good vibes and a big virtual pat on the back. If you live with one of these hero’s, give them an awesome elbow bump from Heeman’s!
