Our crop of Fall Mums have been planted and are looking really good! The liners came in the first week of June from one of our many local suppliers. The plants were then potted up by our co-op students, whom have been taking care of them since. Have a look for your self and see how amazing they are shaping up. They have rooted and now we are moving them outside to our polyhouses in order to finish them off. They should be ready by the time the students start back to school in September, and flower throughout the fall season right up until first frost.
Fall Mums are a great way to add some colour to your entrance-way to your home, and with 12 varieties to choose from the Niagara College Greenhouse and Nursery should have the colour that you are looking for. Come by to see how they are growing, you can pick up some fresh herbs and produce. We will have perennials and other nursery stock available all throughout the summer months. Our greenhouse will be fairly empty during this time in order for us to clean and sanitize the space. Our next crop planned is for the beginning of August and we will be planting Poinsettias, I know, it is way too early for that!
Please come by and pay us a visit, enjoy a glass of wine while you stare off into the vineyard or grab an ice cold beer from our teaching brewery… there is a lot to do on campus we would be happy to show you around!
