FERNDALE – It’s not too soon to consider plantings now that will produce colorful springtime gardens next year. Sullivan Renaissance and Cornell Cooperative Extension Sullivan County Master Gardener Volunteers will demonstrate how to divide and replant perennials at a fall gardening seminar on Wednesday, September 6 at 6:00 p.m. at the Cornell Cooperative Extension Education Center.
“It might seem soon to think spring, but if you would like colorful gardens now is the time to get busy!” said Diana K. Weiner, Sullivan Renaissance Horticulture Program Manager. “Now is a good time to consider putting your garden to bed, as well as planting trees before the ground freezes.”
In addition to showing how to propagate and replant perennials that have finished blooming, the Master Gardener Volunteers will offer guidance on where to plant deer resistant bulbs for their best showing next spring. Lists of deer resistant bulbs and plants will be available for attendees.
Space for the seminar is limited and pre-registration is requested. Click here to register or call the Sullivan Renaissance office at 845-295-2445. Light refreshments will be provided.
Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation with support from Bold Gold Media Group, Fisher Mears Associates, The River Reporter, The Sullivan County Democrat and Thompson Sanitation.
