Shorter days and cooler nights mean plenty to do in garden

September 20, 2010

[FERNDALE] – With the arrival of shorter days and cooler nights there is still plenty to do in the garden.  Autumn is the perfect time to plant perennials, trees, shrubs and bulbs.  Sullivan Renaissance is holding its fall gardening seminar on Wednesday, October 6 at 7:00 p.m. at the CVI Building in Ferndale. 

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 garden beds
  • Planting perennials, bulbs, shrubs and trees
  • Mulching, pruning and composting
  • Lawn care and repair

“Autumn is a good time to continue work in your garden and assess your plans for next year.  Take a close look at what did and did not work, visit other gardens and think about what you would like to change or add, and plan your sketches for the spring while ideas are still fresh in your memory,” 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 YorkBotanical Garden and Master Gardener Program in Connecticut.  She practices organic vegetable and ornamental gardening both personally and professionally.

Everyone is welcome to attend.  Those interested in learning more about Sullivan Renaissance are also invited.  Refreshments will be served.  Please RSVP by October 4.

Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation.
