Bradner’s Growing Concern is a four acre nursery owned by Len and Denise Smit in the City of Abbotsford. Specifically, it resides in the community of Bradner, an area where the residents are very community minded and involved. We started developing the business in the summer of 1997 building our first two greenhouses. Work commenced part-time each evening and weekends until March 2005 when Denise came home to concentrate on the day to day operations. Since 1997 we steadily grew the operation to the fourteen greenhouses and coldframes that exist now.
We produce a variety of container grown shrubs, perennials and conifers. The better part of our stock goes out to garden centers so we strive for a consistent, high quality product in which that customer base demands. Another important part of our business is the long standing contracts we have to grow for customers in B.C., Alberta and Manitoba.
