Experience spring at City's greenhouse
February 8, 2016 -
Spring is 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. 14, 21 and 28 and March 6 and 13.
"Winter hasn't been too wintery, but it's still grey and dull. A visit to the colourful blooms in the greenhouse is a great way to help people get through a dark season," 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.
