Event description

Description

Kingsbury Acres Greenhouse was founded in 2009 after the Christakes family bought out the retiring Angelo Bernacchi family members. The Bernacchi's were considered by many as the best grower in Indiana. Our head grower Tony Bernacchi learned from his father and uncles and continues on the tradition of producing high quality annuals and perennials. Four years ago, Blooms Greenhouse was born as a direct to the public grower outlet at wholesale prices.

As a celebration of our 10 years in business we are conducting behind the scenes tours of how the finest quality plants are grown for the fall season.

You will be surprised to learn how similar producing plants is to any other factory where the production is pre-scheduled and all the components come together on a timely basis.

You will also learn,

  • About the different Fall Annual Plants we grow, like Garden Mums, Asters, and Fall Planters.
  • How our plants are propagated and where they come from.
  • The difference between seed and vegetative varieties and what that means for you the consumer.
  • What soil professional growers use and why.
  • How plants are transplanted into the trays and pots.
  • How long it takes from transplant to ready to sell.
  • We will explain the irrigation and fertilization techniques.
  • The importance of optimum climate control.
