Grow Plants Inside During Winter
       There are many types of houseplants, big and small, that are fun to grow inside in any season including winter. Houseplants help to decorate a room and help filter the indoor air. Creating houseplant combo gardens and mini gardens are great projects for winter months. Come visit us and see all the pretty indoor plants we have available in our greenhouse.
