Sumka Brothers Greenhouses is a True Family Success Story
It all started in the winter of 1977, when George Sumka decided to start a hobby greenhouse on the family farm off of the South Perimeter highway in Winnipeg, Manitoba. George and his brothers, Paul and Peter, had always been involved in GROWING! They were immersed into the lives of production gardening from the time they were old enough to pick peas! For the next few years, the Boys would grow starter vegetables to be planted in the surrounding fields for harvest and sale in the summer markets. In 1985, the Boys began to retail a variety of bedding plants and geraniums out of a little sugar-shack erected in the parking lot of the Food Barn on the Regent Avenue Strip. The loyalty of Winnipeg and Transcona's flower customers kept Sumka Brothers Greenhouses afloat despite an annual gypsy-like relocation of the sugar-shack. In 1993, the Peguis Street garden centre opened for business and...KABLOOM!!! The rest is history in the making!
