Open Garden

Saturday September 25, 2021
10 am - 4 pm


Thank you for your interest in the Open Garden series! 

During the September garden tours from 10 am to 2 pm, Master Gardener Nora Hiland will talk about the botany of some late season native flowers. Goldenrods on the property include: zig zag, stiff, showy, wrinkle leaf, Riddell's, white, bluestem, and early. Asters on the property include: aromatic, blue wood, heath, smooth, New England, willow, and calico. These late season flowers are vital for pollinators and migrating butterflies.

Seeds of 2-3 species of earlier blooming native plants will be available.

With the increased interest in native plants comes a greater awareness of gardening practices that are ecologically sustainable and promote habitat health for insects and birds. The Native Plant Propagation Committee invites you to explore plant progression and gardening practices across the seasons. These monthly open gardens are informal opportunities for those interested to drop in and see what is coming up, what is in bloom, and garden tasks in progress.
