First Thursdays in the Perennial Gardens

First Thursdays in the Perennial Gardens

Thursday, May 4

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. 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. In case of inclement weather, the First Thursday will be canceled for the day. Contact Beth Miller with questions,
