Bamboo Trellis Workshop
There will be many plants for sale that need a trellis to climb, such as Clematis 'Roguchi' with its lovely blue bell-shaped flowers. Learn how to lash and make a trellis for yourself at our Bamboo Trellis Workshop on June 20.
Pizza and Focaccia Cooking Class
There are still a few spaces open in Sunday, April 29's Pizza and Focaccia class.
Sample 4 kinds and pick your favorite to re-create at home!
There is not much Gwen Montgomery does not know about growing tomatoes. So if you have problems with this fruit (yes, fruit!) register for Totally Tomato on June 2 and grow a superior harvest this summer.
Why Trees Matter
Finally, the rest of the world is catching up with what we know. Read this article at the NY Times:
Walk At the Arboretum
The Arboretum is abloom, and this weekend's overcast forecast is good news for gardeners and photographers alike. Please come visit us for a walk and send us your photos!
Our What's in Bloom page is active again as volunteer Phil Dahlen has begun his regular updates.
Register for any of these online at our website or by calling 973-326-7603.
Our Volunteer Coordinator, Marge Hulstrunk, writes that she would love to hear from you if you are willing to help out at this year's Plant Sale. As it expands, we need more volunteers to serve all our visitors. As a long-time volunteer myself, I cannot say strongly enough what a wonderful job being a volunteer is. We would love to add you to our group.
For more information, visit the Volunteer Page on our website or call Marge at 973-631-5049 at your earliest convenience.
