Plants are beginning to grow!
The Asiatic Lilies are in bloom and the blossoms are magnificent right now. Perennials throughout the Park are doing great as they have loved all of the rain and cool weather. However, roses, dahlias and annuals are not impressed and are waiting for warm sunny days. If you are visiting us you will need to be careful in the west Park where peonies, lilies and daylilies reside as the ground is saturated and there could be pools of water right now.
Regular work parties are held every Tuesday and Friday morning @ 9:00 am. If you are interested in volunteering, please stop by and chat with us at this time.
We are always looking for some extra hands to help maintain the Park - for information on volunteering at the Botanic Park, please visit Volunteer Opportunities
