June 7, 2010, Leamington, Ont. – Despite having several greenhouses seriously damaged in last weekend's major storm, officials with the Aris Horticulture Inc.'s Keepsake Plants production facilities (formerly Yoder Canada) say regular shipments are continuing.

Advertisment

Aris Horticulture, Inc.’s Keepsake Plants, Ltd. production facility here sustained damage during a tornado over the
weekend. This tornado was part of the same system that passed through Ohio and
Michigan Saturday night. No one was hurt, but several of the greenhouses were
damaged. The office building received minimal damage.

"No disruption to daily shipments is anticipated due
to the storm and we are operating as normal," said a company official. Growers relying on product
distribution will receive material on schedule. "Local greenhouse growers are
banding together to provide assistance."

Over
the next week, Aris will conduct an assessment of the damage to the property and
develop a long-term facility recovery plan. "This will ensure that we can
continue to provide a reliable supply of product for our customers through a
combination of repairing existing facilities and constructing new buildings."
