Greenhouse Open House and Repotting Clinic

Posted on May 6, 2013

Come browse through the state-of-the-art Wheaton Greenhouses and enjoy the blend of technology and beauty.  Walk from the Rainforest to the Desert and then to the Temperate environment and see what each climate has to offer to our senses and the plants that live there.  See orchids in bloom, cotton on a cotton bush, succulents galore and primitive Cycads.

The greenhouses sport automatic shade curtains, fully electronic controls, growth chambers for environmentally monitored plant growth, and a rooftop weather sensor.

Bring along a pot bound plant for expert assistance in repotting.  Soil and non-decorative pots are available on site.  Donations accepted to cover cost of materials.
