Yew Dell Gardens growing with new horticulture center
from The Courier-Journal
If it weren't for the new horticulture center at Yew Dell Botanical Gardens, longtime gardener Ruth Wukasch wouldn't have been able to plant seedlings on a snowy February morning. "Where else can you come during winter and put your hands in dirt?" said Wukasch, a retired nursing professor from Prospect. "I feel blessed to be able to do that." About a year and a half after construction began on the Preston T. Ormsby Horticulture Center, Wukasch and about a dozen other volunteers prepared flats for Yew Dell’s annual plant sale inside a geothermally heated greenhouse, one of the components of the new facility. The center will open to the public soon, probably at the end of next month.
