On a recent Tuesday (and an unseasonably warm one, at that) 23 landscape/horticulture technology students traveled to Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square to enjoy the legendarily beautiful surroundings, and to go behind-the-scenes in the nursery and the production greenhouses.  The group – accompanied by Carl J. Bower Jr. and Dennis P. Skinner, assistant professors of horticulture – also toured North Creek Nursery in Landenberg, a wholesale producer of perennial plugs and grasses, specializing in native plants.
