About Us

From garlic to succulents, and photos to novels, the Greenhouse at Pumpkin Junction, actually a small farm lost in the bush between three communities, has something for everyone.

Started in 2000, a few garlic cloves in our little vegetable garden multiplied to thousands in a much larger garden with fewer vegetables. Our garlic is organically grown and of the highest quality, we only sell the best.

Growing and caring for succulents, cacti and air plants are almost an obsession. So now we need to share.

We create our own, handmade cement containers and fill them with Succulents & Cacti and Air Plants.

Organically grown in British Columbia’s North Okanagan Valley between Salmon Arm, Grindrod and Enderby.

Bursting with flavour and easy to peel — hardneck and softneck varieties vary to suit every taste. Mild, medium, and hot, once you’ve tried them, going back to the grocery-store varieties might be excruciating.

We started growing garlic in 2000 when my parents gave us some freshly-grown, local garlic to sample. Right away we were hooked. Now we have 19 cultivars from 5 different varieties (15 are ready for sale) and want to share their incredible flavours.

Thanks for starting us off Mom and Dad.

We grow hardnecks and softnecks. Some are hot and spicy, others mild and sweet. Of the six-hundred-plus cultivars of garlic, we’ve chosen ours based on flavour, hardiness to our northern climate, shelf life, peeling ease, and appearance.

The point wasn’t to capture nature as it truly is; instead, we are attempting to find something better than that: something that makes us stare; something that thrills. If you’re interested in some of our photos let us know. We’d love to hear from you.

All the photographs but one were taken with the Nikon D90. Frost bitten was taken with a point-and-shoot.

Our concrete containers are handmade at The Greenhouse at Pumpkin Junction. We make the forms, pour the concrete, polish, and stain the pots. Each one is unique and thoroughly examined to ensure top quality. One of us loves making his concrete.

Our round containers have diameters from 2″ to 8″ and stand from 3″ to one foot tall. They all have drainage holes and a separate base.

Our square and rectangular pots are sized about the same. They too have drainage holes and a base.

We purchase many of our succulents and air plants and are growing a lot of our own now too. We plant all the concrete containers ourselves and work to ensure the highest quality in all our plants.

These are some of our favourites recipes. We created some, and we borrowed others. But they all have lots of garlic and taste great! Please enjoy.
