darker weather can sometimes give people the winter blues. But, inside Lowe's
Floral in its springtime.
Flowers may brighten up your place but, also your mood.
For those who may be suffering from
the winter blues, you may be surprised what a greenhouse can do for your
"There is no doubt that plants
will make people feel better about a long, cold winter," says Phil Lowe, owner
of Lowe's Floral.
Not only is the greenhouse a
comfortable 62 degrees right now, but just walking among the plants and shrubs
can give you an overall boost. That's because you're surrounding yourself with
something that's alive and growing, which you may not see during this
time of the year.
"We have people come and walk
through because they have the winter blahs. They're sick of the cold. They're
sick of the snow everywhere. So, they come in and see something green,"
Filling up your home with plants,
even a small mint plant can do wonders to add colors to your home as well as
brightening up your mood.
"I think even more than that, its
aesthetics. And, knowing that there's something green, alive and
growing, because when you look outside, even though there are a lot of live
plants under all that snow, it's really hard to think far enough ahead to
say, 'I know spring is going to come.' Right now, it's easy to say, 'I hate
this cold, I want to go anywhere warm," says Lowe.
Lowe's Floral is already planting and prepping their spring
seeds. So, spring is just around the corner.
In order to keep plants warm inside the
greenhouse all winter long, employees use coal and natural gas to heat things
up. They have one as a back up system just incase one system goes down.
