A Day in the Garden – Sussex County Open House

2015 Open House “A Day in the Garden” is scheduled for Saturday, July 18, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Each year in July, Sussex County Master Gardeners host “A Day in the Garden” in their beautiful teaching Demonstration Garden, located at the Sussex County Extension office at the Carvel Research and Education Center in Georgetown. Directly behind the Carvel facility, the garden pathways that meander around specialty gardens, shade and sun, benches and garden art welcome area gardeners of all ages. It is the time to explore, take pictures, learn about varieties of trees, shrubs, perennials, annuals and vegetables and that work well in the Delaware landscape.

Special events this year include:

Plant Sale
UDairy Creamery Ice Cream available for sale from the MooMobile!

Four Mini Workshops all in one day! Free!

Come see what we’ve designed, planted and cultivated. There is always something new!  Do you have a plant that’s under the weather, or not cooperating with the weather? Bring it to our Sick Plant Clinic mini-workshops, exhibits, services and experts will be on hand. Visit our plant sale and take home a new plant to enjoy in your garden!
