LATE SEPTEMBER is the start of my favorite garden season: fall. Fruiting plants (hollies, aralias, and more) start to color up, and grasses and forbs are showing off, too, and setting seed–with the fruit and seeds enticing to the many birds who call my garden home for all or part of the year. Come see at my fourth and final Garden Conservancy Open Day of 2014, on Saturday, September 20, in Copake Falls, New York. Shop for rare plants from Broken Arrow Nursery, too, while you’re here, since fall is prime planting time.
- Garden open 10 AM to 4 PM (get directions; $5 suggested charity donation to Garden Conservancy at gate)
- Two other Garden Conservancy gardens are open nearby on the 20th, too.
- Broken Arrow Nursery plant sale at Margaret’s garden, 10-4
- Lots of other local sights, from dramatic woodland and waterfall hikes to farmers markets to scenic rail-trail biking…are all detailed at this link from June’s Open Day.
