What’s in Bloom?
Our "What’s in Bloom” list includes indoor plants the week – here’s a Kumquat tree.
It’s growing in our greenhouse and was donated by a Friend last year.
It seems to like its new home!
Our Garden Goddess
You can follow the musings of Garden Goddess, and garden-writer, Valerie Sudol, at her new website – www.valeriesudol.com or like her at her facebook page.
This week’s blog on orchids is filled with orchid viewing suggestions.
Blackburn Scholarship Lecture
If you are looking for a good read this winter, look no further than the works of William Bryant Logan, our speaker for the Blackburn Lecture.
His critically-acclaimed books, “Air,” “Dirt,” and now “Oak” are thought-provoking and will tickle the fancy of any plant lover with leanings towards science and history.
You can purchase an autographed copy of “Oak – The Frames of Civilization” on Saturday February 13 after hearing his excellent talk.
Enjoy a hot beverage and some delicious cookies and support the Blackburn Scholarship, given annually to a County College of Morris student enrolled in their horticulture program.
