History

Building on a Legacy

In 1979, Ted and Lois Hole incorporated Hole's Greenhouses & Gardens Ltd, which has since grown into one of the largest retail greenhouses in western Canada. Beyond her business achievements, Lois Hole was a committed member of the St Albert community; serving as a school trustee, board member for countless organizations, and finally as the Lieutenant General of Canada until her death in 2005. 

Hole's Greenhouses & Gardens relocated to the Enjoy Centre in 2011; shortly after, Boudreau Developments acquired the land where Botanica is being built. From the rooftop terrace, to the community garden, the Hole family has been involved in the planning process to ensure that the legacy of Ted and Lois Hole is upheld and celebrated.
