Experience spring at City's greenhouse

February 2, 2015 -

Today's blowing snow and bone-chilling winds may have you dreaming of spring: it's in full bloom at the City of Kingston's greenhouse and you can visit it on upcoming Sunday afternoons.

The greenhouse at 111 Norman Rogers Dr. (across from Centennial Public School) will be open for free visits from 2 to 4 p.m. on Feb. 8, 15 and 22, and March 1 and 8.

"There's snow on the ground, but the City's greenhouse is in full bloom. We are happy to be able to present this colourful display of plants and flowers to winter-weary residents each year," says Troy Stubinski, operations manager, public works.

Spring bulbs and tropical plants are on display, including daffodils, orchids, tulips and hyacinths.

Greenhouse staff will be on hand to answer questions.
