New Greenhouse- Ready for New Year

We celebrated the opening of our new Greenhouse with a ribbon cutting ceremony in late December. Our local senator, Don Williams was present and complimented us on taking our business to the next level. (From left to right- Laurelyn Martin and Byron Martin;Senate President Donald E. Williams, Jr. (D-Brooklyn); Jonathan Healy, the USDA Rural Development State Director).

We also had an opportunity to take a group photo of our amazing staff!

Here is a bench of Angel Wing Begonias which grow more easily in this new structure. Some of our new features include automatic vents, automatic watering and heat retention curtains. The energy efficient aspects will reduce our fuel consumption by 70 percent and makes us a truly "Green" company.

More rows of begonias. On the right our town economic developer, Elsie Bissett and Logee's financial manager, Marie-Claire enjoy the plants.

However, for all our die-hard Logee fans, our seven retail greenhouses that have character and charm will remain open with display plants.

You can still walk under an archway with ficus pumilla covering the ceilings and doorways. the real "Secret Garden" remains and actually connects to of our retail greenhouses.

The original entrance opens into the "Long House" which continues to boast spectacular floral displays- Like this Chenille or Lipstick plant with red long velvety catkins.
