VIRTUAL ZOOM PROGRAM
England is a "must see" destination for garden lovers, so the Friends set off in June 2017 for a visit to Cornwall and Devon.
In this program, Judy Snow, past President of the Friends, relives an unforgettable tour through large estates such as Mount Edgcumbe, Lanhydrock, Heligan and Trebah, as well as several smaller private gardens.
You'll learn about the rich history of the gardens while enjoying views of the lush borders in early summer.
The program is free for Members and only $10.00 for non-Members.

Although not actually a color, white in the garden can create a sense of alm, serenity and light, especially when paired with green foliage as a backdrop. White can brighten up a dark spot in the garden, give your eyes a rest and can be seen clearly in the evening, providing a crisp, cool, clean look.
Here are just a few of the white flowers blooming at the Arboretum today: A bunch of white Siberian Irises, a white Bearded Iris and a Paeonia suffruticosa cv. Hatsugavasu (Tree Peony).
