    Preregister Now! U.S. Botanic Gardens  Production Facility Open House, Saturday, March 10, details below


    **Not to be Missed!** Rarely does the public get to see our growing facility, the largest greenhouse complex supporting a public garden in the United States. The site, completed in 1994, includes 85,000 square feet under glass, divided into 34 greenhouse bays and 17 environmental zones. In addition to foliage and nursery crops, you'll see all of the USBG collection not currently on display, including orchids, medicinal plants, carnivorous plants, and rare and endangered species. Register for one of the open house times to get a brief orientation to the facility, meet the gardeners, ask questions, and wander through this working wonderland of plants. Please note: Limit of 50 people per entry time. Light snacks and beverages will be provided. No registrations will be taken at the door. Doors open 15 minutes prior to entry time. The Open House ends at 2:30 p.m.
    ENTRY TIME OPTIONS: Saturday, March 10, 2018, 10 a.m., 10:30 a.m., 11 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 1 p.m., 1:30 p.m.
