On the first Thursday of each month from May to October, a team of certified UConn Extension Master Gardeners, who tend the three perennial gardens, will be present to share their extensive knowledge related to successfully growing the flowers in these gardens. The public is invited to stop by, view the gardens, and ask questions. Join us May 4, and the gardeners' discussion will focus on proper mulching techniques and water-sense gardening.
This is a very special plant sale! Of course you will be tempted by an alluring selection of native perennials and shrubs. You will be enticed by the sight and scents of our herbs and veggies. But you might also take home a Bartlett Heritage Heirloom: For one day only, Bartlett Japanese Maples and Eastern White Pine will be available – tree saplings that are offshoots of original Bartlett trees!
The Bartlett Arboretum & Gardens Tour will be held at peak blooming season on June 11 and 12. The tour includes the picturesque Bartlett gardens as well as five other gardens in the surrounding area, and is designed so that visitors experience the beauty and range of landscapes and environments. In addition to the tour, on Monday both a luncheon and boutique will be available at the Bartlett as part of the event.
