Watering Plants at the Greenhouse in Waltham, MA

Although this tour starts with the watering of plants in the greenhouse, the work of putting together an exhibit at the 1998 Massachusetts Horticultural Society's Spring Flower Show in March started months before with the selection of plants in the fall of 1997. The plants began to be placed in the greenhouse in the first week in January. The plants required watering at least every other day from this point forward until the last plants left the greenhouse on Memorial Day weekend in May.

An exhibit viewable for only 10 days required more than 8 months of planning and 5 full months of constant plant care.
