Winter Storm Clobbers New Jersey

This past weekend's storm left downed trees, power lines and frustration in its wake. We hope you are well into the cleanup process and that it was not too horrible. Also, we hope for prompt restoration of power for those still in the dark.

The Arboretum was not spared, with large limbs and small ornamentals alike suffering from the weight of this storm. Click on the poor broken hawthorne at right to go to a small set of pictures of the damage plus an illustration of pruning tips for your garden repairs.

Stuffing Four Ways Cooking Demonstration

Does your stuffing have you stuck? Tired of the same old dreary dressing? Want to try something new this Thanksgiving?
