NARGS 2012 WINTER STUDY WEEKEND PITTSBURGH, PA Phipps Conservatory Autumn in the GARDEN - A Time for Troughs - The PhiPPs ConservaTory in Pittsburgh is one of the largest glasshouse complexes in the world and there is an opportunity to visit it during the Eastern Study Weekend in October. The original glasshouse was constructed in 1893 and was then stocked with plant material from the World Columbian Exposition which had taken place in Chicago. Many additions and changes have taken place since: from the South Conservatory in 1896 to an "aggressive multi-year expansion plan" from 2003 to the present October 12-14 which has added the Visitor and Welcome 2012 Centers, Tropical Forest Conservatory, and extended production glasshouses. The surrounding gardens have also been extensively remodelled. Our visit will coincide with the fall Chrysanthemum Show. Details of Registration can be found on page 183 173 Phipps Conservatory
