With the distractions of another busy holiday season behind us, the short days and long, cold nights of winter now get our full attention. For plants people, it is a greenhouse, interior plant collection, an arboretum visit or trip to a warmer climate that keeps us sane. Granted, the dormant landscape offers a stark beauty of it's own, but the thrill of the bud, leaf, and flower's ever changing show is put on hold.
Working indoors at a large, wholesale, interior plant greenhouse makes my winter pass as easily as if I lived in the tropics. Servicing the tri-sate area and it's interior foliage and flowering plant needs, there is never a dull day in my plant-based world. Unless of course the occasional 'big snow' that slows or stops things for a while.
