New Nursery Production Greenhouse
Our new nursery production greenhouse features a groundbreaking design and unprecedented flexibility to accommodate a variety of plant materials, growing methods, and environments.
Soil Transport System
Our new facility features a soil transport system that allows us direct delivery to the plant-potting and transporting areas, thereby eliminating the need for manual soil transport.
One-half of the new facility utilizes an open-roof “cabrio” design in which the roof can slide completely open to allow for optimal indoor climate.
The new facility features 17 distinct growing zones to best accommodate our diverse palette of plants.
The vast majority of the new facility’s greenhouse is dedicated to custom-growing plants for our seasonal displays.
We designed and built the new facility to improve the quality and volume of our crop production, introduce more sustainable technologies, and elevate the work environment for our staff.
Our new facility allows for unprecedented control of light levels, temperature, and moisture levels when custom-growing plants.
Research and Evaluation
Our Research and Conservation team finds and evaluates new plants, improves plant characteristics, and enhances the sustainability of our horticulture practices.
Approximately 70 percent of the plants used in our displays are raised on-site, including such show stoppers as blue-poppies (Meconopsis ‘Lingholm’), which we force to flower every year in March.
Conservatory Production Facility
Located behind the Conservatory, our production greenhouse facility spans nine greenhouse zones to produce a variety of plants year-round under all conditions.
