Mid-Valley Garden and Greenhouse
30 years of growing in Alaska
Local Flowers and Produce
Mid-Valley Greenhouse carries beautiful, healthy hanging baskets that are of the highest quality, large standing flower containers, a wide variety of flower starts, proven Alaska veggie starts, and a large selection of herbs. We also carry a variety of greenhouse items, such as cucumber, peppers, and a large selection of tomatoes. We are very familiar with tomato varieties that work well in an unheated greenhouse in Alaska and taste great.
We have grown hundreds of varieties of heirloom, open pollinated, and hybrid tomatoes from around the world, and many of them come from cooler climates. Many of the heirlooms we have trialed came from Siberia and Northern Russia, and do very well in AK greenhouses. We also are having good luck with several varieties outside in containers and in the garden too.
In the bragging rights category, our personal record tomato so far is a 5.51 lb tomato, and we had plants that yielded 50 plus pounds from a few varieties too. We also have several of our own crosses of heirlooms, and some of our stable lines such as Mat-Su Express are available too. We have tomato varieties for giant fruit, and for production, but the taste is always most important.
We will assist you with any questions you have concerning what tomato starts are right for you.
