Begun with the arrival of memorial day weekend, it's time to start thinking about getting our yards in shape and maybe planting a few flowers.

But like many businesses, local greenhouses have been affected by the coronavirus too.

Earlier this week landscaping, gardening and horticultural businesses were deemed essential across the state under the new york state forward plan.

Social distancing guidelines must still be followed and local green houses are making sure their customers know what those guidelines are.

The "river road green houses" in marcy was blooming today as people are trying to get back to some sense of normalcy.

"we have a fairly large place so there's lots of room to shop around.

We took some benches out and put lines in that are six feet apart giving it a nice even flow so people aren't so cramped together.

If you talked to me five weeks ago, i didn't feel very comfortable, and had dreams about dumping these beautiful flowers."

Last weekend cornell coperative extension handed out free masks and hand sanitizer to local farmers and other growers to make sure they were able to keep their customers safe.
