2013 Open House “A Day in the Garden” is scheduled for Saturday, July 13, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Each year in July, Sussex County Master Gardeners host “A Day in the Garden” in their beautiful teaching Demonstration Garden, located at the Sussex County Extension office at the Carvel Research and Education Center in Georgetown. Directly behind the Carvel facility, the garden pathways that meander around specialty gardens, shade and sun, benches and garden art welcome area gardeners of all ages. It is the time to explore, take pictures, learn about varieties of trees, shrubs, perennials, annuals and vegetables and that work well in the Delaware landscape. In 2012 our A Day in the Garden was family friendly with a captivating Children’s Garden, which changes each year and encourages inquisitive young minds to interact with the exhibits. At our open house, we’ll show you how to make gardens smart and easy with tools and raised beds that allow gardening to be accessible.
Each year our features change! Come see what we’ve designed, planted and cultivated. There is always something new! Do you have a plant that’s under the weather, or not cooperating with the weather? Bring it to our Sick Plant Clinic mini-workshops, exhibits, services and experts will be on hand. Visit our plant sale and take home a new plant to enjoy in your garden!
July 2013 is still in the planning stages – but we have a date, Saturday, July 13! Meanwhile, you’ll get a good idea by viewing last year’s YouTube invitation and by viewing the slide show of images from our 2012 A Day in The Garden!
See you in July!
