What to do for your Rhododendrons this month

November ~ November is still fall planting time. Select your favorite digging tool! Fall planting will result in a better root system developing over winter. Put out nematodes if you want to get rid of the weevils organically. This would be done ONLY if the November air temperature has not dropped below 50 degrees F. See more here.

Upcoming Events

January 23, 2020 - Paula Trinoskey will talk about the elements of Chinese Gardens that we can incorporate into our own gardens. Through her photography and that of her husband Verne you, too, will be transported into Chinese gardens they have visited.
