Where are you spring? We are wondering when to plant.
Although it is a bit too early for tender plants like annuals and veggies, it is a great time to plant trees and hardy perennials. Our students just planted some Apricot trees and ornamental grasses in front of the new culinary building at our Niagara-On-The-Lake campus. This garden is the beginning of a much larger design that will incorporate ornamental plants with edibles in the same garden. Which symbolizes the relationship between our greenhouse and cooking school.
Our greenhouse is open 7 days a week from 9 to 5 now and has a wonderful staff full of knowledge waiting to answer any questions you may have.
Invitations have been sent! This Saturday March 24th from 10am until 2pm Niagara College will be opening its doors for thousands of perspective students for our annual Spring Open House. Here at the greenhouse our students have been working on projects that will be guaranteed to inspire. If you are itching for spring then Niagara College Greenhouse is the place for you to be! We have a wide selection of student grown crops to purchase such as some amazing 8″ Hydrangeas, 6″ Gerbera’s in all sorts of different colours, 6″ Easter Lily’s and much more. Come earlier to beat the crowd, stay later there is no rush, the greenhouse will be open from 9am until 5pm!
The greenhouse will be open 7 days a week starting next week from 9am until 5pm every day!
