The Start of Spring

Here we are! Spring is sprung! At least for the greenhouse crews. The greenhouses have been fired up for about a week and a half. So far we have planted:

Begonia baskets. I’m always amazed at how many different types of Begonias we grow. Rieger Begonias, Wax Begonias(shown above), Dragon Wing Begonias, Bossa Nova Begonias and that’s just some of them!

Other plants we’ve planted include Celosia, Violas, Pansies, Black-eyed Susan vine baskets, New Guinea Impatiens baskets, Geraniums tubs and baskets.
This week, some of our Landscape foremen will start unpacking the Perennials we overwintered, the second crop of Geraniums are coming in and we will start planting Clematis.
