VIRTUAL ZOOM MEETING
The Friends of The Frelinghuysen Arboretum are delighted to work with the Master Gardeners to bring you this free program.
Master Gardener, Diane Lattanzio will speak about Hydrangeas, well-known for their enormous clusters of white, pink and blue flowers in the summer garden. Yet, gardeners are often puzzled by this beautiful and very popular plant. Through her presentation, Diane will address questions regarding the selection, care, maintenance, pruning and propagation of this old-fashioned favorite. Handouts will be available.
If you missed Gray Russell's Zoom presentation on July 14, entitled "Composting and Eco-Friendly Yard Care", it's not too late to register for it and receive a link to watch the recorded version.
