DURHAM, NH - April is a great time of year to visit the University of New Hampshire Greenhouse Open House. This year's Open House will provide plenty of interesting displays and information to help chase away winter and welcome spring.

UNH's Greenhouse Open House will include educational lectures, colorful displays and demonstrations on a wide range of topics to satisfy anyone interested in home gardening and landscaping.
