[FERNDALE] – Some people know just how to make their flower gardens “pop” with color and design so that passers-by say “wow!” Sullivan Renaissance will share the tips and tricks that make gardens glow at its summer gardening seminar on Wednesday, July 8 at 7:00 p.m. in the CVI Center in Ferndale.
The free seminar will offer insights into what Sullivan Renaissance judges look for when they review community gardens around the county. This information will be helpful to every gardener who wants to learn the how-to’s of gardening.
“Thousands of annual and perennial flowers, trees and shrubs are being planted to create new gardens throughout Sullivan County,” said Diana K. Weiner, Sullivan Renaissance Horticulture Coordinator, “This seminar will help you create and tend your garden so that the flowers shine to their best advantage and make a lasting impression.”
While offering valuable information for all gardeners, the seminar will be particularly helpful to the 53 community projects that are beautifying the area’s gateways, houses of worship, parks, cemeteries, schools and libraries.
These communities are preparing for visits from Sullivan Renaissance judges between August 6 and 9 to evaluate gardens and projects. The teams of judges, including panelists from Canada, will be awarding monetary prizes based on how well the volunteers have performed, including awards for the best “showing of flowers.” Prizes range from $1000 to $25,000 depending on the program and the size of the project.
Space for the seminar is limited and pre-registration is requested. Refreshments will be provided.
