Winter Wonderland Revealed at Oliver Paine Greenhouses

A special ‘winter wonderland’ will be revealed Sunday, November 29th from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. at Oliver Paine Greenhouses’ Annual Poinsettia Open House, 125 South Granby Road, Fulton.

The toy soldier brigade will have the greenhouse looking especially festive for the children, and the child in all of us to experience. The 10-foot tall poinsettia tree will of course be filled with all of the vibrant poinsettia colors. “It’s fun to see many of our customers take their holiday photo in front of our tree-it’s become a holiday tradition. And remember, poinsettias are safe for everyone.” says Cindy Paine.

Dan Duggan plays his hammered dulcimer to entertain everyone throughout the day. You’re invited to enjoy refreshments too, while you stroll through the colorful isles of cyclamen, Christmas cactus, poinsettias, kissing balls, wreaths and more.

“You’ll want to check out of the new ‘gardeners gifts’ and ‘home décor items’ Diana and Cindy found on their buying trip—a variety of birds and bird house ornaments, pedestal wreath hangers, primitive colonial style décor, Christmas flags and more,” says Oliver Paine. For those who enjoy ‘making their own decorations and gifts’, Oliver Paine Greenhouses has Fun Shops scheduled throughout the season;
