Monthly Perennial Tour

First Thursdays in the Perennial Gardens

Thursday, July 6

9:30 a.m - 11:00 a.m.

Stop by the perennial gardens surrounding the Great Lawn. 

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. For July, the focus will be on deer resistant plants! Two of our perennial gardens have no deer protection, so visitors will learn which ones seem to be "safe" and which may get browsed by deer. The public is invited to stop by, view the gardens, and ask questions. In case of inclement weather, the First Thursday will be canceled for the day.
