Fall at the Arboretum

Wow, have we had some beautiful Fall weather. Mums and asters are at their showiest best, hydrangeas have donned their dusty Fall look and all the trees and shrubs are getting ready for a wonderful Fall display. Be sure to take a walk at the Arboretum before time runs out on this great season.

Energy Saving Bulbs

No, not the compact fluorescent kind... flower bulbs! A little work in the fall will reward you with blooms in the spring and well into the future, saving you time and energy. Go green! ...and red, and yellow, and orange....

Join us this Friday (October 15th) at 10:30 am to hear presenter Marc Zukovich, President of Sterling Horticultural Services and Professor at County College of Morris, a gifted speaker who is incredibly knowledgeable on all topics horticultural. His talk on bulbs is one of the best. There will be bulbs for sale (cash or checks only) following the talk.
