Hi guysI am looking for good examples of public greenhousesCan you suggest me something?Thank youByeMarch 11, 2010 at 5:40 pm #170524
? What is your definition of a ‘public greenhouse”? Almost all the botanical gardens have greenhouses – BBG in Brooklyn, the National Arboretum in Wash D.C…The gorgeous one on the Mall in Wash D.C. – forget the name..

United States Botanic Garden at the base of Capitol Hill (botanical is technically incorrect, as my former British botanic garden head would insist). The National Arboretum doesn’t really have big greenhouses for public perusal its pretty ,much all outside (and huge). Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square PA has a really nice one, as does the Druid Hill Conservatory in Baltimore.March 11, 2010 at 8:44 pm #170521
I mean Greenhouses for public use, like the ones in some parks or botanic gardens, like u said 😀March 11, 2010 at 8:44 pm #170520
thank you!March 11, 2010 at 9:33 pm #170519
Longwood! Thanks Jason – really nice one! forgot about that..Bronx Botanic Gardens in new york also has really nice ones…
Have fun – fun to think about..March 11, 2010 at 11:57 pm #170518
San Francisco Conservatory in Golden Gate Park, but again, this is not a public greenhouse, it is a botanical garden; open to the publc, but for viewing only. I do not know of any “public” greenhouses wherein one could garden their own plot.March 12, 2010 at 1:31 am #170517

Como Conservatory in Saint Paul, Minnesota http://www.comozooconservatory.org/cons/index.shtml , or the Mitchell Domes in Milwaukee, WI http://www.county.milwaukee.gov/MitchellParkConserva10116.htm. The latter features different biomes.March 12, 2010 at 11:10 am #170515
thank you guys, you are giving me really good informations
i am taking a look to some greenhouses you talked me about… them are great!March 12, 2010 at 8:10 pm #170514
You might also look at some of the zoos: Randers Rainforest (Denmark) , Burgers Bush (the Netherlands), Masaola Rainforest (ZooZurich) for a different concept. There are fine public glasshouses in Amsterdam, Adelaide, Brussels, Wales, at Kew Gardens…the list is endless. The Gardens By The Bay in Singapore should be amazing when it opens.March 12, 2010 at 8:53 pm #170513
Garfield Park Conservatory and Lincoln Park Conservatory in Chicago, Illinois
