Fall Gardening. Brownstone Brooklyn Garden District hosts a Bulb Give Away and Dig. Share. Dig. (Recession gardening)
BULB GIVE AWAY
Saturday October 24th – 9 – 2
Look for the BBGD table adjacent to the Artisan Market and the Farmer’s Market at the Dekalb Avenue/Washington Park entrance to Fort Greene Park.
Come take a bag of free early spring blooming bulbs. The selection includes muscari, crocus, hybrid emperor tulips and species tulips in butter yellow, deep blue, cream and crisp white. These bulbs may be planted anytime before the first frost.
WE ASK THAT YOU PLANT THEM IN PLACES WHERE THE PUBLIC CAN ENJOY SPRING’S FIRST FLOWERING – IN TREE PITS, WINDOW BOXES, FRONT GARDENS & COMMUNITY GARDENS.
DIG. SHARE. DIG. (Recession Gardening)
Saturday October 24th 12 – 2
Look for BBGD at the monument in Fort Greene Park
Do you have plants in your garden that need to be divided? Do you have plants that have spread and does it pain you to “throw them out ?” Come share what needs to be dug up! In the Spring BBGD hosted a Dig. Share. Dig. and local gardeners offered their roses, hostas, ground covers, bearded iris & tiger lilies. This fall we promise to have coral bells, ajuga, gooseneck and tall red cannas. Add to the list. Bring something. Take something.
