While we wait on warmer temperatures to replant area fields, gardens, and pots on the front porch, the crew at Iott’s in Ward has been hard at work for months, preparing this year’s crop inside their trio of greenhouses.
The temperatures inside typically range from 65-100 degrees and this year especially, as winter has dragged on, it’s been a welcome respite for staff from the wind, snow and cold.
Opening day at Iott’s is scheduled for April 28th but the staff has scheduled its annual ‘Planter Night’ events again for April 20, 21, 22, 24, 25, and 26th. How those work — customers either buy a planter or bring their own and the crew helps you put one together for summer.
Open house weekend is April 28-30.They are then held at the greenhouse until Mother’s Day.
