Spring comes to the Andrew’s Legacy Greenhouse

There is nothing better than spring in the greenhouse at Andrew’s Legacy. Spring is exploding all over the North Fork and it all started in our greenhouse last month. Every plant seemed to know it was spring. Not only did the flowering plants bloom, but new color came into the leaves that those that didn’t.

And what better way to start a spring blogging blitz! Starting with this blog we will be periodically posting blogs about gardening, just like we have done in the past. Hope you enjoy them!
