Installation of our ‘foundation’ trees and shrubs was a three day process!
WED – September 19, 2018 – 44 holes marked with size and depth needed according to shrub or tree size.
THUR – September 20, 2018 – Digging Day! Thanks to the turning of soil via the Wenham DPW, twelve HWGC and Community volunteers were able to dig our tree & shrub holes in less than 3 hours!
FRI – September 21, 2018– Installation Day. Fifteen HWGC and Community volunteers return to plant our foundation trees and shrubs.
Dear HWGC Members and Horticultural Friends,
We have made great progress on our Pingree Park Garden Project.
Thanks to the Town of Wenham and the Department of Public works, our garden site is looking absolutely beautiful. Paths have been dug, edging installed and path material is going in as I type. As hoped for, this garden will be here for the long haul and will add a beautiful and lasting touch to the park and its visitors.
Garden Committee has worked tirelessly pulling all the ends together this summer. Please take a moment to visit Pingree and if the DPW is there, identify yourself and express a warm and very sincere, Thank You!
Our core foundation plant material is going quickly. Thank you to those who have already donated. For those who have been thinking it through, you might want to take a moment to look through this list. Plants can be purchased directly through Corliss Bros., they have our list and will take down all your information. You can also make a simple or small monitory donation at Corliss… if you do, be sure to leave your name on the Pingree Park Garden Project list as well.
FOUNDATION PLANT LIST (Our current need seems to be with the smaller edge bushes, Red Twig Dogwood, Blueberry and Japanese Holly)
