I don't even know how many greenhouses are at Mary's but I know it takes me several hours (even if I call ahead and have them pull my order) because I can't resist going into all the greenhouses to be sure I don't miss something new. Wear your walking shoes and layered clothing. It gets hot in the greenhouses even in early spring.
The staff is knowledgeable and helpful. you can pick up a map in the office to help you navigate all the greenhouses. I often call them from my cell phone when I'm down the hill in one of their big greenhouses and can't find a plant that I know should be there. They always know where I need to look.
The old adage, "a picture is worth a thousand words" applies here. I took lots of pictures in late March of this year when I went to pick up my spring order. Here they are with captions.
