Schedule being created.
The first month is crucial for the success of the garden. Deep
watering is necessary in the beginning to establish roots.
Deadheading, weeding, and raking must go on during the entire season. If you are unable to work your scheduled time, switch with another member & notify Kathy. Be sure to plan working times with your partners in advance.
The New Paltz Garden Club has proudly planted and maintained tubs at the New York State Thruway Entrance for over 40 years. Because of the newly installed no contact Thruway tollbooths we no longer have room for our planters. Many thanks to Wallkill View Farm for contributing the plant material each year and to the many garden club volunteers, who planted watered and pruned the tubs to maintain their beauty.
