        History

        Ramsay’s Flowers Ltd. is a successor to the company formed by Walter Ramsay. Walter Ramsay was born near London, Ontario, in 1870. He came to Alberta in 1899 and was principal of McKay Avenue School and then Queen's Avenue School.
        In 1905 he left the teaching profession and founded the florist firm of Walter Ramsay Ltd, which operated a large array of greenhouses near the General Hospital in Edmonton AB. He was a pioneer in this field and his business grew to become one of the largest in Canada. Walter Ramsay died in 1958.
        Ramsay’s Flowers Ltd. was operated by Walter’s son, Donald McRae Ramsay (1904-1974).
