Sundowner Tour

Sundowner Tour - Sept. 18, 2009I was fortunate enough to have signed up for a Sundowner Tour at the Arboretum last Friday evening. These tours are staged periodically in that magically lighted time around sundown and are led by one or another of the Arboretum's Plantsmen, this time Scott Scarafile.


New Website

The Friends of The Frelinghuysen Arboretum is proud to present its new website. Powered by the drupal content management system, this site will make our job of presenting up-to-date information about events and activities at the Arboretum easier than ever to publish. Hopefully, you will also find it useful and pleasant to look at.


While we have spent a lot of time trying to make this roll-out flawless, there are bound to be some glitches, so let me know if you encounter one and I will get it fixed as soon as possible.


Garden Club of America Fall Rose Sale

The Garden Club of America  is having a fabulous fall rose sale. The varieties were chosen by rosarian Steven Scanniello and are available in limited quantities.

See these flyers (Catalog and Order Form) to learn more about this extraordinary opportunity for purchasing a rose with a history and a scent!


The Summer That Wasn't

Here we are in early September already after a very un-summerlike summer! The plants are happy, though, having had lots of rainy days, so use the Labor Day weekend for a walk around the gardens at the Frelinghuysen Arboretum.

Volunteer Phil Dahlen has once again updated the In Bloom list so you can plan your visit around the showiest areas.


Using a GPS to Find the Arboretum

GPS's are far from infallible and their use to get to the Frelinghuysen Arboretum is no exception where our mailing address is in Morristown while our physical address is in Morris Township. Be sure to use the latter for entry into your GPS when traveling to see the gardens. The two addresses are on the bottom of this page, and the physical address is repeated on the Directions page.


We look forward to seeing you at the Arboretum, so matter what means your use to get here.


Retail Partners Program

One of the many benefits of membership in the Friends of Frelinghuysen Arboretum is our Retail Partners Program which offers members discounts at many fine, local establishments. Once again, the list has grown (click Retail Partners here or on the link under Membership, above, to view).

Isn't it time you joined the Friends?
