If you've visited the store and you picked up the booklet titled Lancaster County Favorites you will see that there are a list of greenhouses in there that you really must visit. Lancaster County has a rich rich supply of greenhouses with houseplants, annuals, perennials, succulents, air plants; and so far as I have experienced, the supply of knowledge about plants is amazing. When do i plant petunias, can I plant lettuce this late in the year, does it matter what kind of plastic should i use to line my plant hangers? This list was a list of Miriam's favorites and we are all interested in what she likes because we like her taste so i went on a tour for myself! I love greenhouses. Love is maybe not the right word. When i walk into a greenhouse, the smell itself makes me feel like in this place right now I could be anywhere in the world. Africa, Montana, Niagara Falls (just to name a few) .... anywhere. There has been no greenhouse that I have yet visited that i felt disappointed. I love them. So allow me to take you on a tour of our list of favorite greenhouses!
HORST GREENHOUSE: This greenhouse has good quality plants and we like them specifically for their houseplants. That is what the booklet says. I was excited to visit because I wanted to buy an asparagus fern. This greenhouse sadly, is closed and no longer in business. So I visited Sauder's Nursery located just beside where they used to be.... also beautiful. Outside plants only. Lots of trees and mulch. I didn't buy anything but would have if i was looking for a tree a shrub or some mulch.
