I.C. Greenhouses is bursting with bright, beautiful flowers that will definitely add a splash of colour to your home and garden.

Owned and operated by Ida Piel, the greenhouses are located about two miles east of Highway 21 on the 6th concession of Huron-Kinloss, and have been serving the community for 26 years.

New this year are a variety of gorgeous petunias: Black Velvet, Pinstripe and Phantom, as well as Million Bells which are miniature petunias, and Patchwork Impatiens.

I.C. Greenhouses has hundreds of hanging baskets (12-inch to 14-inch) to choose from; as well as shrubs, perennials, herbs, bedding plants, vegetables plants, patio pots (10-inch to 19-inch), window boxes, giftware, custom potting, and wedding rentals.

Simply walking through the greenhouse is a wonderful experience as we anticipate warmer, spring weather.

Head out to I.C. Greenhouses and see what's available. The greenhouses are open Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Plus, it's never too early to think of the perfect gift of a hanging basket or planter for your mom on Mother's Day, May 8.
