The Greenhouses That Grow City Flowers

From the NY Times:

“Three greenhouses are responsible for the infinite colorful blooms in parks across the city: Greenbelt Native Plant Center on Staten Island, Forest Park Greenhouse in Queens and Citywide Nursery in the Bronx, which we explored on a recent rainy morning….”

“…The Queens greenhouse, he added, specializes in tropical plants..

…Bronx site…a tree nursery…The Bronx nursery grows some 200,000 plants each year to be distributed to public parks citywide…”

Our gardens lean towards the indigenous plantings from the Greenbelt Native Plant Center in Staten Island.
