An Icelandic Greenhouse

Heather WeickumFlowers, Plants, Roses

On a trip to Iceland, I was lucky enough to have a guide interested in anything floral related when I mentioned I was in the business. We found an out of the way family owned greenhouse that grew bedding plants and some cut flowers for a local retail florist just down the street that happened to be owned by the son of that same family. That retail shop also had a greenhouse attached that grew roses on site utilizing at least in part geothermal energy. It’s always fascinating to me to see the diversity in floral operations from place to place. This visit especially was a treat for me because I had never dreamed I’d see Iceland, and certainly never thought I’d see greenhouses there. Love this industry for sure!
