We have three connected greenhouses at the Farm: a production greenhouse, a display greenhouse and a hydroponics greenhouse. All three greenhouses are in use year round.
The Display Greenhouse was added in 2014 as we were becoming tight on space in the production greenhouse and wanted an area to show some non-native plants of interest. We have four sections in the display greenhouse: an orchid display, a cactus dessert garden, an Asian inspired garden and a tropical plant section. We also have two living walls and in the center are our taller specimen tropical trees and shrubs.
The Production Greenhouse is in use year round. Many of our vegetable plants are started by seed in the greenhouse. We start trees from cuttings and seeds in the greenhouse. For the Christmas and Easter holidays we will grow respectively around 100 poinsettias and easter lilies to give to friends and family.
