Visiting Logee’s Tropical Container Crops for House and Backyard
As a critical and passionate gardener, each time I’ve the time I all the time get pleasure from visiting space nurseries searching for new and strange houseplants so as to add to my assortment.
Earlier this week, my head gardener, Ryan McCallister, and I took a visit to Logee’s Tropical Container Crops for House and Backyard in Danielson, Connecticut – certainly one of my favourite sources for tropical specimens. Logee’s was based in 1892 by William D. Logee. William began the enterprise as a cut-flower store after which expanded it to incorporate begonias and tropical container vegetation. Over time, Logee’s turned well-known for its hybridizing achievements on this planet of begonias. At present, Logee’s is owned and operated by Williams’s grandson, Byron Martin, and his enterprise accomplice, Laurelynn Martin. Logee’s affords greater than 1500 plant cultivars – most of that are all propagated proper in its greenhouses. I’ve been going to Logee’s for a few years, and Byron has been a visitor on each my tv and radio reveals. It is all the time a lot enjoyable to go to his greenhouses and to study his great vegetation.
Take pleasure in these pictures.
