What a terrific way to kick off the First Day of Spring! We are thrilled to say that we have persuaded our wonderful Manager of Horticulture, Brian Heinz, to begin weekly updates from our Horticulture Team. Brian will be sharing all of the exciting things happening in our arboretum.

"We are so fortunate each season to welcome back our Horticulture Volunteers. This is a tremendous group of people, one that will undertake many projects throughout the season. Planting flowering bulbs in autumn, replacing those bulbs with flowering annuals and perennials in the late spring, removing lawn and naturalizing sedges and other native herbaceous plants---these are just some of the gardening fun that they have. Oh, and of course weeding! Or, if you prefer, “garden editing”.

How do we decide how to use these wonderful folks? Well, Spring Grove is a big place, and most of the time we work with our volunteers on big tasks. It is a huge help to us, but also we keep the group together in the same area for their time. This makes it very social and enjoyable. Thousands of bulbs or bedding plants are installed at the Willow Water lake flower beds alone. To pull garlic mustard or cut climbing ivy off of trees in our woodland preserve---these would be quite challenging to tackle with just our internal Horticulture staff. This group brings such an energy to our landscape work. They are so enthusiastic, and they always make our day more productive and more fun.

So yesterday, we started eliminating unnecessary lawn under some beautiful oak trees, and installing native sedges to fill in as our ground cover. The sedge, Carex laxiculmis ‘Hobb’ BUNNY BLUE is left alone by deer, shade tolerant, and wet soil tolerant. It can also thrive in partial sun, as long as it stays adequately moist. This native cultivar is the result of seed collected by Bob Head of Head Ornamentals, Seneca, South Carolina. Our Hobb sedges were grown by Hoffman Nursery in Rougemont, North Carolina."

Thank you Brian - we are looking forward to your next update.
