Sharon & Glenn Stepanick,
Founders of Brenneis Greenhouses
In spring 2000, flower seeds were sowed by local gardeners Glen and Sharon Stepanick, Brenneis Vegetable Garden. A lifetime of gardening on her parents farm, Sharon had colourful idea. After a difficult vegetable growing season she had an idea of growing flowers. Little did she know, something beautiful was to bloom, Brenneis Greenhouses.
Glen and Sharon enlisted help with this labour of love, a single Farm Worker, Lydia. who assisted in watering and loving these little seedlings in 1 little greenhouse. Learning everything about flowers as they grew... with growing strictly vegetables this was a challenge! What where these flowers going to look like? How exactly do you grow them? There were many laughs along the way, and continue to be today!
2006 was a very difficult year. Sharon and Glen were faced with yet another challenge, a cancer diagnosis. The Stepanick's had to make a tough decision and that was to sell Brenneis Vegetable Gardens. Focusing on overcoming cancer while enjoying the beauty of flowers was the future.
Glen beat cancer and 2,880 square feet flourished into 12,000 square feet! Our army of amazing staff, along with our customers continue to fill our vibrant greenhouses with sunshine, allowing us to continue to serve Edmonton and area.
Fast forward to Winter 2021, Sharon & Glenn passed the family business down to their niece Jennie and her husband, Dustin. Jennie and Dustin are excited to take Brenneis Greenhouses to the next level... get ready, they're just getting started!

"Great nursery for an excellent selection of flowers and garden plants. We went on the weekend before the long weekend and selection was still really good. But more than that what really surprised us was the number of staff they had to help people. The staff were warm and friendly, helpful and we found everything we wanted. A great experience all around."

"I have been shopping at Brenneis for years. Always buy their hanging tomato baskets!
I love browsing thru their greenhouses but last year changed that for me so I ordered curb side pickup. Their website was amazing and I was not disappointed when I picked up and brought the most beautiful plants home!"

"This was an accidental find! ... The selection of tomatoe plants is unreal! Walked out with 9 plants and all very healthy looking and strong. Prices are decent too. I'll definately be shopping here again next spring. Come early though cuz it gets pretty busy here too."
