Beachside to Boardwalk Family Fun in Carolina Beach
Metrolina Greenhouses is a family-owned, wholesale plant and services company that started business in April 1972. Take a tour of the facilities to learn about how the four main product lines are grown: spring bedding plants, summer annuals, fall mums and pansies, and winter poinsettias. You can also learn about the packaging and distribution process for these plants and find out how they end up at national retailers such as Home Depot, Lowe’s and WalMart.
Tours are available for the Spring (Feb to March) and Fall (Oct to mid-Nov) on Tuesdays and Thursdays two times each day. Groups can range from 8 to 25 people. To reserve a spot for the Fall, call beginning in July; for the Spring, reservations start in December. Tours last about 1 hour and 15 minutes and there is plenty of walking.
