Seed pods! Golden grasses! Browning peony leaves! Do you love the sound of dry leaves rustling in the autumn breeze, but could do without the look of browning foliage in the fall? Do you wonder what to do with your garden plants as the season shifts from the lushness of summer to the crisp coolness of autumn.
Join Reeves-Reed Arboretum staff horticulturist Laura Gilkey, for a workshop on late summer garden maintenance with a focus on perennials.
Laura has been a part of the Horticulture Department at Reeves Reed Arboretum since early 2019. With a background in Visual Arts and Filmmaking, Laura has studied Horticulture and Landscape Design at The New York Botanical Garden and The County College of Morris. Laura brings her lifelong love of plants and a commitment to environmental stewardship to her work in horticulture and garden design. Her focus is on creating intentionally designed and environmentally sustainable habitats.
This workshop will take place both in the Wisner House and, weather permitting, on the grounds of the Arboretum.
