DURHAM, N.H. (AP) - The University of New Hampshire is holding its annual Greenhouse Open House for eager gardeners - some still aching from shoveling snow the first day of spring.

The MacFarlane Greenhouse will be open Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

University faculty, staff and students will offer lectures on a variety of topics including seed saving, drip irrigation and soil testing. Visitors can also learn about UNH research on cutting-edge genetics and hydroponics.

Attendees will be able to purchase plants from Thompson School horticulture students and tour greenhouses where students grow greens for on-campus consumption.

Lunch and coffee will be available at the Greenhouse Cafe, with proceeds helping to fund the Thompson School Horticultural Club’s spring trip to Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania.
