AUTUMN GARDEN SEMINAR

Shorter days, cooler nights mean plenty to do in yard and garden

September 17, 2009

[FERNDALE] – With the shorter days and cooler nights of autumn approaching, there is still plenty to do in the yard and garden.  In fact, fall is the perfect time to aerate the lawn, test the soil and plant trees, shrubs or bulbs.  Sullivan Renaissance is holding its fall gardening seminar on Wednesday, October 7 at 7:00 p.m. at the CVI Building in Ferndale. 

“Autumn is a very good time to give your garden some attention and plan ahead.  Take a close look at what did and did not work, peruse other gardens and think about what you would like to change or add and draw sketches for next year.  While things are still fresh in your memory it’s never too early to plan ahead for next season,” said Vivian Multari-Ginsberg, the Sullivan Renaissance Horticulturalist, who will lead the seminar. 

Multari-Ginsberg is an avid gardener with over 25 years of horticulture and landscaping experience.  She studied at the New York Botanical Garden and Master Gardener Program in Connecticut.  She practices organic vegetable and ornamental gardening both personally and professionally.

The program will look at how gardeners can prepare for the winter while getting a jump start on the next growing season.  Seminar topics will include:

  • Protecting and winterizing perennial beds
  • Planting bulbs, shrubs and trees
  • Mulching, pruning and composting
  • Repairing and lawn care

Everyone is welcome to attend.  Those interested in learning more about Sullivan Renaissance are also invited.  Refreshments will be served.  Please RSVP by October 5.

Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation.  Additional funding has been secured by NYS Senator John J. Bonacic and Assemblywoman Aileen M. Gunther.
