Tour and Tea in the Garden September 19th
Join Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ulster County’s Master Gardeners at the Jacob A. Hasbrouck Building on the SUNY Ulster Campus in Stone Ridge on Sunday September 19th for a guided tour. After the tour we host Tea in the Garden at Victoria Gardens in Rosendale. To register or for more information visit the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ulster County website.
Master Gardeners will explain the principles of drought resistant garden design and planting techniques which help to create this incredible gardening spectacle.
Tea and a guided tour of Victoria Gardens in Rosendale will immediately follow the Xeriscape tour. The cost of the tour, talk and tea is $15 per person. All participants will receive a comprehensive list of water-wise plants to help them start their very own Xeriscape Garden. Space is limited and pre-registration is required by Wednesday, September 15th.
The Xeriscape Garden is an interactive teaching tool in the selection of heat tolerant, water-wise plants, integrated pest management and alternative landscaping techniques.
