Woodcock Walkabouts back for second season

Take a tour of the 2.74-acre Woodcock Demonstration Garden with a veteran Master Gardener the first Thursday of each month from June through October (except July 4), starting with an inaugural season tour at 10 a.m. Thursday, June 6.

The walk focuses on plants in bloom as well as tips for thinning your apples. Master Gardeners are building a new herb spiral in the culinary herb garden and would like to share its progress with visitors.

In addition, the garden’s dahlias are beginning to emerge, the cottage garden is full of color and the shade garden offers a cool respite from summer heat.

Master Gardeners tend the gardens on Thursday mornings and will be available to answer questions on their respective areas.

The Woodcock Demonstration Garden is at 2711 Woodcock Road and has garden displays demonstrating sustainable gardening techniques that cover a broad range of ornamentals, edible and native plants as well as composting and garden design. It is open to the public for free daily.
