Trip to Potratz Floral Shop & Greenhouses in Erie, Pennsylvania: “Life’s a Garden, Dig it”
I have always loved plants and gardening. I find it to be both relaxing and a talent not everyone has. One of my friends posted about a Greenhouse near us and I am happy to report our visit to the Potratz Floral Shop & Greenhouses in Erie, Pennsylvania. Their Social Media account says it’s an elite family owned & operated Floral Shop and “Botanical Garden” with 1000’s of options in covered glass just over an acre.
Let me tell you when they say they have 25,000 sq. feet under glass and over 2,000 species including rare plants. Which makes sense because they have been servicing the tri-state area for 100 years.
Their selection flows through 7 greenhouses and seasonally to the outdoors, in addition to a growing range in North East. I have to say walking these greenhouses was so overwhelming in such a good way. I was like a kid on Christmas day! Plants were tucked, hung, laid out, sprung and climbing everywhere around you. From Annuals, house plants to perennials!
Some tips when visiting a Greenhouse:
🌱 Know when to Visit your local Greenhouse
🌱 Check Frost Dates in your area
🌱 Consider What Kinds of Plants You Wish to Add to Your Garden
🌱 Determine the Plants’ Space Needs before purchasing for your home or collection
I hope you enjoyed some of the beauties we encountered while at the Potratz Floral Shop & Greenhouses in Erie!
