Flower Report for August 30 2013

The summer floral display is finally beginning to show signs of slowing down as we have begun to plant the first of the chrysanthemums to enhance and extend the season. You will find fascinating an incredible collection of hanging baskets, window boxes and container plantings. We even plant up the tops of our garbage containers. When strolling through the gardens be sure to look for our many topiary figures strategically placed throughout the grounds.
