The London and Golden Horseshoe Chapters of Landscape Ontario enjoyed a nursery tour, lunch and an informative speaker series at Sheridan Nurseries, Georgetown, on Mar. 21.

The group took a bus tour of the nursery production facilities at Sheridan’s Glen Williams container farm and Norval perennial and propagation operation, which included a look at the irrigation systems, watering ponds, field production and greenhouses.

The greenhouses were filled with lots of colour and greenery — heucheras were a mass of different colours and hydrangeas were just starting to bloom in time for the Easter buying season.

The group was also treated to a variety of presentations that included information on new perennials, ornamental grass usage and indoor and outdoor green living fences.

London Chapter would like to thank Permacon for their tour bus sponsorship and Sheridan Nurseries for providing a wonderful spring awakening during the cold month of March.
