May 19 column

Here is a link to my column in today's edition of The Spokesman-Review: Green thumbs unite to run Greenhouse. It is a profile of Green's Greenhouse, owned by Brian Green and Dan Dunn. They have really nice bedding and vegetable plants, and hard-to-find plants as well. The photo above is of a gorgeous geranium I bought there for my front porch planters. The cultivar is 'Horizon Petticoat.'

The greenhouse is located at 13910 S. Short Rd. in southwest Spokane. The address is technically in Cheney, according to the Postal Service, but it's really in between Spokane and Cheney.

Here are the directions: Take highway 195 south from I-90. Proceed 2.3 miles south of I-90 and turn right onto Cheney-Spokane Rd. Drive 3.3 miles and turn left onto Sherman Rd. Go 3.1 miles and turn right onto W. Washington Rd. Take the first left, which is Short Rd. The greenhouse will be 7/10 of a mile on the right.

They are open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Friday and from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. 
They also have a Facebook page at
