Dec. 13, 2010, Fort Myers, FL – Aris Horticulture, Inc.’s construction of 239,580 square feet of new greenhouses is moving along quickly at its Keepsake Plants® Fort Myers facility.

The first plantings started in early November, only a few months after construction was begun. Target date for the new greenhouses to be fully operational is mid January next year. Products grown at the Fort Myers facility include azaleas, tropical hibiscus, mandevilla, potted roses, and rooted garden mums and asters.
