STONECROP GARDENS ANNOUNCES A CURE FOR THE WINTER BLUES
Spring under Glass from March 23-28, 2009
Come to Stonecrop and leave winter behind for good! Starting Monday, March 23rd, one of the first days of spring, Stonecrop Gardens will open a week early for a special celebration of Spring under Glass.
The garden’s five greenhouses—including an alpine house, a tropical house, and a large, elegant English-style conservatory—will be opened to visitors for this special week, Monday, March 23rd to 28th. Containing rare plants from all over the world, many in bloom in late March, these greenhouses provide a wonderful, warm, dry place to stroll “under glass” among an astonishing array of flowering bulbs, alpine plants, and tropical specimens. Admission for a self-guided stroll is $5 and offered Monday through Saturday from 10-5pm. No registration is necessary. Stonecrop will open for its regular season starting April 1, 2009.
