"Masson Greenhouse Poinsettia Tour"
New Generation Society of Lawrence (NGSL members only)

Tue., Nov. 17, 2009, 9:00am - 10:30am
Location: K-32 HWY and Linwood Kansas
Alex R. Masson joined his father to help grow one of the first wholesale plant producing greenhouses west of the Mississippi River and east of the Rockies.
Withstanding difficult growing conditions, including the Great Depression, the Masson greenhouses focus on quality, variety and customer service. In 1972, the headquarters moved from Kansas City to Linwood, Kansas and introduced the "Sunflower Sue" brand.
A leading producer and wholesale distributor of year round blooming potted plants, Masson Greenhouse will have 6 or more acres of red, yellow and variegated poinsettias in bloom for the holiday season. Our tour guide will be the company plant manager, Tom Franchett.
