Spring Clean Up and Tropical Planting
Perennial and Spring Clean Up. Here we go again! A call to arms. . .ask not what Frederick can do for you. . . but what you can do for Color On The Creek!
Its time for spring clean up…. the warmer weather has forced us to move the schedule around a bit. The perennial planting and spring clean up is now scheduled for Saturday April 8th from 9 to noon. As always this is rain, shine or snow.. .we will need lots of creek rats and land crew to support them. The water level will be lowered again to facilitate removal of the muskrat caps and fertilization of the pots.
We have lots of waders but those with their own are encouraged to bring them along. Dress warm and in layers as April is a difficult month to judge. Please let us know if you can help and if you’re a likely “creek rat” or land volunteer.
Tropical Planting. The Tropical planting will be held on Saturday May 6th from 9 to noon rain or shine. We will plant over 230 tropical lilies, bog and lotus plants. We will need lots of creek rats as well as land crew to support them. Please let us know if you can help and if you’re a likely “creek rat” or land volunteer. As always we will meet at the suspension bridge in front of the wine kitchen.
The garden will be spectacular this year ….be a part of it!
