Is Coffee in the Garden 10am-11am, same as last season?

What's Professional Garden Day at Mohonk Mountain House? Sounds exciting.

Thanks!

Victoria Gardens said...

Yes Laura,

Coffee in the Garden is 10am to 11 am on the first and third Sunday of every month. We'll update it on the schedule!

The Professional Garden Day at Mohonk is a day of classes and lectures for Professional landscapers and Landscape Designers. Andrew, the head gardener at Mohonk Mountain House, is organizing it, and I think it will be great. We're debating whether we will close the nursery on that day so the entire Victoria Gardens' Staff can go. We'll see!

Hi,

Excited for the new season!

Where can I find more info on the Professional Garden Day at Mohonk? I see the above comments mention it, but I do not see it listed on the event calendar.

Thanks!

Liz,

Unfortunately, it's not happening this year. Andrew is focusing on the garden holiday instead.
