In springtime Carol Watson Greenhouse is a beehive of activity, starting with the Annual Celebration of the Senses in late March or early April. We schedule spring garden cleanups; coordinate landscaping and hardscaping projects (call to ask about our popular WE PLAN – YOU PLANT program); plant floriferous and easy-to-care-for containers for customers; and share exciting trends, valuable information and creative experience with you via classes and a weekly Saturday morning TV spot with Laura Hand on WSTM NBC 3.
Carol Watson Greenhouse has operated in it’s original location since 1981. Claire and Carol Watson are celebrated throughout Central New York and beyond for their specialty year-round containers featuring the finest and most unusual tropicals, annuals and perennials. We feature a profusion of lovingly tended, choice new varieties and old favorites of annuals and tropicals; a continuously updated assortment of interesting and hardy alpines, perennials, shrubs and accent trees; and a unique selection of international and local artisan pottery and garden accent items. An attentive staff is on hand to answer your gardening questions year-round. You may also register for a wide assortment of creative garden classes throughout the year.
