Student Grown Poinsettias

Our student grown Poinsettia crop has never looked better! Our greenhouse is a sea of red and white, with 3000 6″ and 500 10″ pots that our students have been growing since the beginning of August.

NC Greenhouse is open 7 days a week from 9-5

Christmas Eve Red is one of our main crops. It is just perfect, great colour and it creates a nice full plant that will last well after Christmas.










Here are our prices:

4″ Poinsettia – $4.50

6″ Poinsettia – $7.50 ($1.00 from each purchase is donated to the United Way)

10″ Poinsettia – $20.00

We are happy to support the United Way. $1.00 from every 6″ pot is being donated directly to this great organization.

Basil’s Bursary Project

NC Students! Meow can I help?

Basil with Basils-1013
Basil keychains are available now at the Benchmarket.

Basil, if you don’t know, is our lovable greenhouse cat that has been here catching not only critters, but the hearts of staff, students, and anyone he meets around this campus for the past 13 years. He helps us in the greenhouse by catching the unwanted rodents around campus (he is our natural pest control). His charm boosts moral when he takes over students coats and backpacks for an afternoon nap, or absconds with a french fry or two during lunch. He is who everyone asks for when they enter the greenhouse. Now he is going to help a future NC student with their finances, we are selling these Basil plush toy key chains for $6.00 each and a portion of this will go into a $500 bursary in Basil’s name, the rest will go back into the “kitty” to help offset the cost of running the greenhouse. They are for sale now and will remain on sale until November (or until they run out). They are only available at the Niagara College Greenhouse’s Benchmarket. The bursary will be awarded during the winter term (2017).
