"The love of gardening is a seed that once sown never dies."

Dail Reid, Horticulturalist
September 4, 2014 Meeting
"Fall Color in Your Garden"

The Garden Club of Harrington Park is pleased to welcome back Dail Reid, Bergen County Rutgers Cooperative Extension Horticultural Consultant and Diagnostician, at its September meeting. Dail will present "Fall Color in Your Garden", a lovely stroll through photos and information on bulbs, perennials and shrubs that bloom in Fall, berry in Fall, or have lovely Fall leaf color. 

As Dail so aptly puts it, "Gardens planted for Fall enjoyment explode with the most vibrant shades of ruby, amber, gold, garnet, burgundy and more. The texture changes, as berries begin to ripen, enhancing the leaf shades around. Flowing billows of ornamental grasses are at their showiest in Fall, swaying with ever stronger zephyrs, seedheads to overflowing."
