The Retail Greenhouses at Logee's

 

The
Fern House

The Fern House is the original greenhouse where it all began! William D. Logee opened his business in 1892 and built the first greenhouse, which, today, is known as the Fern House. In order to grow Ferns, Hibiscus and Terrarium plants, temperatures are kept above 60 degrees year-round. Large banana trees, mature Staghorn Fern specimens, and other impressive tropicals add to the magic of this greenhouse.


The Lemon Tree House

Have you ever seen a giant 5-pound lemon? Take a trip to the Lemon Tree House, where Logee's Famous Ponderosa Lemon Tree, growing directly in the ground since 1900, produces some of the world's largest lemons. From under the lemon tree, you can admire the many spectacular, award-winning orchids. Then find a Citrus plant to enjoy picking fruit in your own home. The Lemon Tree House was built as an addition to the original greenhouse, the Fern House, and its tropical temperatures are kept above 62 degrees year-round.


The
Big House

Visit the amazing 10-Variety Citrus Tree, breathe in the exotic aroma of Angel’s Trumpets, and wander through a jungle of amazing plant specimens in this huge, sub-tropical greenhouse. Salvaged from the destructive 1938 New England hurricane and rebuilt in 1940, this was the biggest greenhouse the Logee family had constructed, hence its name, The Big House. Because a “chill period” is necessary for many plants to bloom, temperatures are allowed to dip down to 40 degrees during the winter months. Here you can find elegant flowering plants like Camellias and Clivias, and tasty fruiting plants like Avocados and Figs; even easy-care Cacti and Succulents happily live in this house as well.


The
Long House

During the 1920s, The Long House was built to house Logee’s cut-flower business. Side benches were installed to hold potted plants, and down the center of the greenhouse garden-beds were built into the ground, where plants were planted directly into the soil. The Long House is kept warm; above 60 degrees all year- perfect for begonias and tropical fruiting plants, as well as fantastic flowering plants like fragrant jasmines and the Chenille plant. You’ll also find fun oddities like carnivorous plants that eat insects, and the Sensitive Plant that reacts to touch. In spring, you can witness the blooming of the extremely rare and unique Jade Vine.


The Potting House

This bright, sunny greenhouse, where most of the potting was originally done, is now home to vibrant Passion Flowers, Spice Plants from around the world, and tropical herbs and vines. Temperatures here are kept warm, always above 63 degrees. The Potting House specimen plants, like Hibiscus ‘The Path’ are always bursting with colorful blooms to delight the senses.


The
Herb House

In the Herb House, you can travel the world through the flavors and aromas of countless culinary plants, including favorites such as Bay, Lavender, Rosemary, Sage, and Thyme, plus many more unique offerings. Home to a wide variety of both unusual and popular herbs, this underground greenhouse is protected from frosts by maintaining the temperatures above 38 degrees through the winter.


The
Retail Store

Experience the joy of growing plants, with a little help from all of the gardening necessities Logee's Retail Store has to offer. In addition to great plants, Logee's carries everything you need to get growing.
