Kelowna seeing signs of spring

With two weeks to go until the March Equinox, The Greenery in Glenmore opens a bright oasis Thursday amid soggy conditions

The first Thursday of every March marks the beginning of spring at The Greenery Garden Centre in Kelowna.

And despite several days of snow in the lead up, not to mention pouring rain on opening day, the spring oasis was buzzing with clients—and free coffee.

Even when an inclement winter like this one holds up planting, manager Kirsten Segler says their newsletter typically brings the customers through the door on opening day.

Some buy. Some look. Some enjoy the warm, bright atmosphere.

Flowers like the Helleborus pictured above can come up even in snow and the pansies, primulas and potted daffodils are also all ready to go.
