Thursdays in the Hydrangea Garden

Some Volunteer Updates for the Marlborough Hydrangea Garden

Volunteers will be working in the garden every Thursday (6PM to 8:30PM) throughout the Summer of 2016 (and also Saturday mornings (8AM to Noon) as scheduled.

This week (Thursday, July 7):

We will continue preparing the beds by laying cardboard and mulch.  We've also got specimens of the following to plant:  Peegee Hydrangea paniculata (see photo above);  Hydrangea macrophylla 'Twist-n-Shout'; Hydrangea macrophylla 'Grenan' (Nantucket Blue); Hydrangea serrata 'Preziosa' (Pink Beauty) and Hydrangea petiolaris 'Miranda' (Climbing Hydrangea).

And, there's still plenty of clearing to do in the wooded "shade" area of our garden.  Bring your gloves and pruners and saws if that sounds like a good project for your personal stress therapy!
