Take in the sights and smells of spring at the Gaiser Conservatory in Manito Park

SPOKANE, Washington – It’s starting to smell like spring! Soon Manito Park will start to look like him too.

Not everything has blossomed in Manito Park yet, but you can get your first dose of spring fever at the Gaiser Conservatory.

Walk inside and you will find many different varieties of plants – from orchids to tulips to cacti. Even birds of paradise and bromeliads!

The Gaiser Conservatory is home to these plants as well as the plants that will soon bloom in Duncan Gardens!

Tara Newberry is a gardener at Manito Park and says the plants from Duncan Gardens arrived last week.

For a month and a half, annuals will grow in the greenhouse and will be transplanted in May.

“Spring is always busy for all of us here. We’re starting to get the beds ready for planting, we’re finishing all the raking,” Newberry said. “Everything is starting to warm up and so we have to water more and everything is starting to grow.”

Manito Park and the Gaiser Conservatory are open from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., but times are subject to change.
