FERNDALE – Don’t let the cooler weather fool you into thinking that gardening season is over! October is the perfect time to plant bulbs for spring color. Sullivan Renaissance will be on location Wednesday, October 3rd from 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm in Monticello. Attendees are encouraged to bring their lunch and meet the Sullivan Renaissance Team under the tent at the North Street Municipal Lot for a hands-on demonstration of planting deer-resistant spring flowering bulbs at Joe’s Park and Sharoff Park. (The North Street Lot is located directly across from the Sullivan County Government Center).
“The colder temperatures are approaching,” says Diana K. Weiner, Sullivan Renaissance Horticulture Program Manager. “After the first frost there will be no more color until spring. This demonstration will bring you closer to welcoming spring with flowers! ”
Tools will be available for use at the site. Attendees will also receive bulbs for their home gardens to practice their new skills and kick-start spring color. A list of deer resistant bulbs and plants will also be provided.
Space for the seminar is limited and pre-registration is requested.
Visit www.SullivanRenaissance.org to register or call the Sullivan Renaissance office at 845-295-2445. Seminar details are also available on the Sullivan Renaissance Facebook page. Light refreshments will be provided.
