US: Alaska Botanical Garden to open 'state of the art' greenhouse

The flowers may not be in bloom yet, but that's not stopping the Alaska Botanical Garden from celebrating new growth.

One year after breaking ground, the garden is preparing to open their brand new greenhouse. According to their website, it's a 1,200 square foot facility, featuring a full wall window “angled to maximize sunlight” as well as a ground source heat pump to pull natural energy from the property to regulate the facility’s temperature.

Executive director Robin Dublin said the new greenhouse will allow the botanical gardens to grow more plants on the premises during the colder months for their annual plant sale. She said, a good portion of the plants for sale are currently shipped up from the Lower 48.
