US (NY): Thousands of flowers growing at MLK Park greenhouseInside a greenhouse at Martin Luther King park, workers are busy re-potting geraniums.
“We start growing our geraniums in January. We start from seeds so we grow about 5 thousand geraniums from seed,” said Jeffrey Krajnik, Martin Luther King Park Greenhouse Head Grower.
After more than 3 months of growing, thousands of flowers have bloomed. By mid-May they will be planted at Olmsted parks throughout the Queen City.
