Updates about current operations at Rutgers Gardens.
February is the month to finalize design considerations for the year and finish ordering seeds. Enjoy the garden’s late-winter beauty and give thought to changes. Here is a list of all of the things you will want to tackle this month—from pruning, to seeding, to edging—to insure a repeat of your past successes!
Italian Arum plays an important role of providing winter foliage interest. Its unusual flowers have a unique method of attracting a specific type of pollinator. And after the flowers fade and the foliage withers away, clusters of bright red fruits bring another layer of interest to the garden well into August.
Chilly temperatures are in the air, and it’s time to properly prepare the garden for winter, as autumn truly bids farewell and sub-freezing temperatures are just around the corner. Here are some things to keep in mind for your December garden.
Dr. Dennis Werner, of NCSU, was the 2019 Hamilton Award recipient. He accepted the award at the Gardens Party, our annual fundraiser to support the Rutgers Gardens Internship Programs.
