UPCOMING EVENTS YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS!

April 2, 2015, 7:30 P.M. at the Harrington Park Library, 10 Herring Street.  Bruce Crawford speaks on "Hydrangea."  With immense billowy blossoms, hydrangeas flaunt an old-fashioned charm that is hard to resist. Colors also beguile with clear blues, vibrant pinks, frosty whites, lavender, and rose—sometimes all blooming on the same plant!

Unrivaled in the shrub world, these elegant ladies are easy to cultivate, tolerate almost any soil, and produce flowers in mid-summer through fall (when little else may be in bloom). Hydrangeas are excellent for a range of garden sites from group plantings to shrub borders to containers.

Special Events at the Garden Club of Harrington Park:

March 14, 2015 - Mini Field Trip to Springfest, a garden show at the Sussex County Fairgrounds in Augusta, New Jersey.  We leave Harrington Park from the Library parking lot at 9:00 A.M. and carpool to Springfest.  After a morning spent enjoying all the exhibits we have lunch at a nearby restaurant.  If you are interested in joining us, please contact us (button at the bottom of the page).  Inspiring and educating gardeners for 18 years, Springfest returns just in time to help you through those last gray, slushy, muddy days of winter. The sun-drenched warmth of the Springfest Conservatory will be filled with garden displays overflowing with color, fragrance, and inspiration for visitors to glean ideas for their own gardens. The area’s premier landscape companies and garden designers are on hand throughout the show to share their knowledge or set up consultations. 

Here are some exhibit photos from previous Springfest outings:
