 Where We Are 

Our address is 1787 Greenhouse Road, Breslau, Ontario. 

Not long ago, the Township of Woolwich renamed most of the roads in the township, so the name of our road on many older maps may indicate it as being Woolwich Township Road #72, not Greenhouse Road.
All highway signs on Provincial Highway # 7 however now read Greenhouse Road.

Our garden centre sits approx. 1/2 km south of Provincial Highway #7 between Kitchener and Guelph, on Greenhouse Road. Once on Greenhouse Road it is easily visible as our buildings are a bright orange colour.

 Dealing With Highway 7... Getting To and From Grobe's Safely 

Over the 50 + years that we have been located off Highway 7 (Victoria Street), traffic volumes around us have increased considerably during peak hours. 
This will likely increase as the Hopewell Crossing development across the street grows.

While we wait for a new highway to be built and/or a long needed traffic light or roundabout to be installed, it is important to note that it IS possible to safely get off and on Highway 7 during peak hours.

Greenhouse Road (where we sit) runs from Highway 7 southwards to a gravel road (Kramp Road), which runs east/west parallel to Highway 7.  About one mile down this road it crosses a paved road (Shantz Station Road).  By turning north on Shantz Station Road, in about a mile you will come to an intersection with a traffic light at Highway 7 which will permit a safe turn westward toward Kitchener, or eastward toward Guelph.

Map To Grobe's Nursery & Garden Centre
Directions 

From Cambridge or The GTA - Hwy 401 to Hwy 24 Exit
Exit the 401 at Hwy 24 in Cambridge. Take Highway 24 north towards Guelph. Go directly through the first roundabout heading towards Guelph. At the next set of lights at Maple Grove/Fisher Mills turn left on to Maple Grove Road. Go ½ mile to the first set of lights at Beaverdale Road. Turn right onto Beaverdale Road. Follow Beaverdale Road to its end where it will come to a signaled T intersection at the Beaverdale Golf Course at Kossuth Road. Turn left on Kossuth Road. Follow Kossuth Road about 1 mile to the first set of lights which is Shantz Station Road. There is also Greenhorizons/Compact Sod at the intersection. Turn right on Shantz Station Road. About 3 miles down Shantz Station Road you will cross under a railway overpass. About 50 yards past the railway overpass you will see a gravel road called Kramp Road on your left. Turn left onto Kramp Road and follow it to its end, where it will intersect with Greenhouse Road. Turn right on Greenhouse Road and our garden centre will be ¼ mile up Greenhouse Road on the right.

From Kitchener
Take Highway 7 (or Victoria Street North) eastward towards Guelph. You will cross the bridge over the Grand River and come to a traffic signal adjacent to the village of Breslau. Continue eastward through those lights and up a steep incline eastward, crossing subsequently another major traffic intersection at Fountain Street. Eastward of Fountain Street Highway 7 will narrow from 4 lanes wide to 2 lanes wide, with the right lane suddenly merging into the left. Greenhouse Road is located about ½ mile past this merge and is clearly marked. If you look to the south from Highway 7, you will see our bright orange buildings, our greenhouse, and a large Grobe Nursery sign on the building. Turn right onto Greenhouse Road and go ¼ mile south and you will see the entrance to our business.

From Guelph
Take the Hanlon Expressway (Highway #6) to Woodlawn Road (Highway #7). From the Hanlon turn left (or from Fergus Highway #6 turn right) and continue to head westward toward Kitchener-Waterloo for about 18 km on Highway #7.  In Waterloo County, it is known also as Victoria Street. You will come to a traffic signal at Shantz Station Road where you will see a Pioneer Gas Station at the corner. You are now close to our turn off. Continuing westward through the traffic intersection on Highway #7 at Shantz Station Road you will pass Memory Gardens Cemetery on your left and you will approach a hill. On the other side of the hill look for Greenhouse Road, which is clearly marked. If you look to the south, you will see our bright orange buildings, our greenhouse, and a large Grobe Nursery sign from Highway #7. Turn left onto Greenhouse Road and go ¼ mile south and you will see the entrance to our business.

From Cambridge or South Kitchener - Fountain Street Route
If coming from Kitchener, take Fairway Road east across the Grand River bridge to the Kossuth/Fountain/Fairway roundabout at Fountain Street. From Cambridge, take Fountain Street northward past the Toyota Plant to this same roundabout. Once to the roundabout, exit it heading northward on Fountain Street. This will take you past the Waterloo Regional Airport, and then continue on following the Fountain Street bypass of the village of Breslau until you reach the lights at a T at Highway #7 (Victoria Street). Turn right. Highway #7 (Victoria Street) will narrow suddenly from 4 lanes wide to 2 lanes wide within 1 mile, with the right lane merging into the left. Greenhouse Road is located about a ½ mile past this merge and is clearly marked on your right, but the new Hopewell Crossing subdivision is just ahead of the intersection. If you look to the south, you will see our bright orange buildings, our greenhouse, and a large Grobe Nursery sign from Highway #7. Turn right onto Greenhouse Road and go ¼ mile south and you will see the entrance to our business.
