The oldest garden centre in the Toronto area is closing after 71 years

A Brampton garden store has provided gardeners from all over the GTA with beautiful plants for decades. Now after 71 years, they're closing their doors. 

Humber Nurseries is officially set to close at the end of October.

"The Peters family has sold the land that the garden centre is located on and will be refocusing their energy on a new wholesale business," a statement on their website reads.

"We would like to take the opportunity to thank all of you for your support over the last 7 decades and wish you all the best in the future."

Although the 25,000-square-foot garden centre located at 8386 Hwy. 50 in Brampton will no longer be in operation, they'll have a new wholesale retail location close by in Caledon. 

In order to prepare for the closing, everything in the store is on sale, with discounts ranging from 20 to 50 per cent off. 

Looks like Torontonians will have to look elsewhere for their plant needs so it's a good thing there are plenty of other dependable ones within city limits.
