DURHAM, N.H. (AP) - The University of New Hampshire is kicking off its annual Greenhouse Open House for eager gardeners weary of the extended winter weather.

The MacFarlane Greenhouse will be open Friday and Saturday 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.
