Nothing screams Fresh quite like locally grown product. At TERRA we are pleased to bring you the freshest plant material available straight from our own production facilities right in here in Southern Ontario.

We operate five acres of state-of-the-art production facilities and employ some of the newest techniques in water and resource management. A team of dedicated professionals over 30 strong produce the quality plant material that TERRA customers have come to depend on to enhance their outdoor spaces.

In addition to freshest in plant material TERRA is a contemporary garden centre and lifestyle retailer offering décor, outdoor furniture and accessories, and fashion. Take a moment and browse through our departments for a peek at what you can expect from TERRA.


The TERRA that gardeners enjoy today is a product of the vision of Jim Pepetone. From the days of his youth growing up over the family fruit market in downtown Toronto to today, Jim has been committed to providing freshness and quality. These values instilled in him by his father, have become a way of life as his sons have joined him in building the dream that is now TERRA.

Embracing his love of greenhouse construction and combining that with the long-standing family commitment of freshness and quality, they set out to build a series of greenhouses that the guests could shop in. The result is comfortable, covered, operating greenhouses creating a shopping experience where customers can shop directly from some of the benches we grow on.

Growing TERRA

Today TERRA operates five retail garden centres with full production capability. They are located in Burlington, Waterdown, Vaughan, Hamilton and on the Mississauga / Milton border. We now employ a large team of experienced and knowledgeable people and under the mentorship of Jim and his family have been proud to launch the careers of many young college students, hundreds of whom we employ each summer.

All of this and a future that we very much look forward to has stemmed from that long-standing Pepetone family commitment to old fashioned value and service. We are proud to service our guests and the communities in which we are located.
