Garden Talk series kicks off in February

By on January 15, 2018

Join the Genesee County Master Gardeners on February 6 for its first Garden Talk of the year, “A Photo Garden Tour of Chanticleer Gardens.”  Get rid of the winter blues with a look at Chanticleer’s spectacular gardens, described as “America’s most inspiring garden.” Located outside of Philadelphia, Chanticleer is a colorful, contemporary garden within an historic setting.  Adolph Rosengarten Jr. bequeathed the family estate for the enjoyment and education of the public following his death in 1990. The garden opened to the public in 1993 and has since been a magical place to visit.

Future topics include: a program on creating cutting gardens on March 6; a demonstration on how to make your own corsages on April 3; tips for growing great canna lilies on May 1; and on June 5 a program about a new invasive pest that has been showing up locally – jumping worms.

All Garden Talk programs run from 12:15 to 12:45 pm.  Bring your lunch to the CCE office (420 East Main Street, Batavia) and join the Genesee County Master Gardeners for this free series. Registration is not required.

Future topics and other Master Gardener events will be posted on the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Genesee County website at and also on its Facebook page at
