SPRING IS COMING! Hyacinths in bloom!
Last fall, we planted several hundred bulbs -- from crocuses to tulips to daylillies -- and now, at last, they're beginning to show themselves!!! And we hope with the coming spring and new blooms, the rains will bless us all!
I have a favor to ask -- if you don't mind. At the Arboretum, we're in the process of developing a 'Southern Garden." But DEFINING such a garden, the design and plants it might contain, is not something that is clearly defined in anyone's mind. We all have our 'idea' of what constitutes or would constitute such a garden, but we're asking for input from YOU -- whether you're from the south (USA) or not -- so, if you get just a moment, would you mind answering three simple questions at our website:
www.johnstoncc.edu/locations/arboretum/arboretum.htm and clicking on " Garden Survey." You'll be taken to a 'survey monkey' for the following questions: "What is a southern garden," "What would it look like," and "What plants would you find there."
THANKS SO much for your kind support and generosity -- and for helping us decide how to proceed on this project. I, for one, have added 'hyacinths' to MY list of plants I'd like to see in a Southern Garden!
Again -- many thanks!!!
