Princeton NJ -- With the onset of warmer weather, it’s only a matter of time before flowers begin appearing in campus gardens. Pictured are grounds department landscapers Carlson Parsons (left) and Guillaume Masseus caring for plants in the University’s greenhouse facility on Harrison Street before they are transferred.

Some of the hardier plants will go into Prospect Garden by mid-April, and the rest will be planted in several gardens around campus by mid-May, according to James Consolloy, grounds manager.

Other locations include Maclean House, Lowrie House, Palmer House, Wyman House, Andlinger Center for the Humanities, McDonnell Hall, Jadwin Hall, Princeton Stadium and Weaver Plaza as well as planters throughout the residential colleges. “Our list is growing as we plan for more garden spaces,” Consolloy said.
