Next week the Friends will present the third of our four virtual Tree Symposium programs:
Tuesday, November 15 - 7:00 PM
VIRTUAL ZOOM PROGRAM
Due to their tiny proportions, bonsai are ideal for the small garden, yet many people are daunted by the perceived difficulty and challenges of designing and keeping these container-grown trees alive and healthy. John Michalski will present the artistic and horticultural principles behind this ancient art form, and hopefully convince you that if you know how to tend a garden or prune a hedge, you can successfully grow, style and maintain bonsai in your own yard.
John is a public school science teacher who enjoys gardening and has been working with bonsai since 1988. He is currently President of the Great Swamp Bonsai Society, which is based in Morris County.
This program is eligible for 1.0 Rutgers Master Gardener CEUs.
Tuesday evenings at 7:00 PM
November 15 and 22
Register for individual programs at $10 for members of the Friends of The Frelinghuysen Arboretum or $15 for non-members.

FALL AT THE FRELINGHUYSEN ARBORETUM
Fall at The Frelinghuysen Arboretum is beautiful; the trees and shrubs have donned their autumnal colors but with the warm weather we've been enjoying, there are still some gorgeous flowers to be found. A yellow, sweetly-scented Rosa 'The Poet's Wife' is blooming in the rose garden and an Aconitum (Monkshood or Wolf's Bane) is blooming in the Eger Fern Garden. The Gazebo next to the Knot Garden sits amid a host of yellow foliage and fallen leaves. Enjoy a visit soon!
