As Greenwich makes its way through the cold winter months, and the town looks forward to seeing leafy green trees and vibrant flowers this spring, there’s no better way than to bring a bit of nature indoors.
The Greenwich Botanical Center welcomes all to their greenhouse and boutique where there are a variety of blooms and blossoms to brighten up the home.
Whether customers are shopping for a gift or looking to revamp a home office, the perfect plant will deliver a breath of fresh air.
Adding greenery to your home can improve air quality, reduce stress, and increase productivity.
Located at 130 Bible Street in Cos Cob, the Greenwich Botanical Center provides a COVID-safe shopping experience and ample free parking.
Stop by the greenhouse for expert advice from a team of horticulturists about gorgeous greenery, vibrant orchids, and whimsical terrariums. Or visit the habitatgreenwich boutique in the main building for one-of-a-kind artistic goods.
Throughout your visit, the Greenwich Botanical Center invites you to find serenity around every corner, from the greenery provided by the greenhouse and boutique, to the natural splendor seen throughout the grounds.
The Greenwich Botanical Center is a not-for-profit organization serving Greenwich since 1957. It is dedicated to promoting horticulture, conservation, and the arts through educational programs, outreach activities, and special events. These include horticulture and senior art therapy programs, digital education initiatives, preservation of our local structures, and many more. The Center does not receive town funding, so your purchase from their greenhouse and attendance at their special events make a lasting impact on the Center’s programs, environmental conservation, and our local community.
And if you have already been cultivating your indoor garden this winter, there are always opportunities to learn and further hone your green thumb. Join their team this Friday, February 19 starting at 10:00am to 12:00pm for a Plant Potting Workshop.
Attendees will learn to groom, debug, and repot their favorite houseplants, so that they will flourish for the remainder of the winter. This is also a great opportunity to pick up a new houseplant from the Center’s greenhouse along with all the knowledge needed to care for it.
Once the houseplants are nestled in their new pots, attendees are invited to sign up for the Greenwich Botanical Center’s Clean Cooking series. Join the Center next week on Thursday, February 25 from 1:00pm – 2:00pm to learn how to preserve lemons for multiple uses with Master Chef Julia Blandori.
At the Greenwich Botanical Center, you can also take a stroll through the 102-acre Montgomery Pinetum Park after you visit the greenhouse and boutique. The park is a registered historic site in Cos Cob and you can distinctly see the historical impact of Colonel Robert Montgomery as
