SPRUCE UP YOUR CONIFER KNOWLEDGE

Dates/time: Thursday, January 30, noon - 1:00 p.m; Saturday, February 8, 1:30 - 2:30 p.m.

Join us for a walk through our conifer collection and Winter Garden to learn the basics of conifer identification and their natural history. The tour will highlight plants native and non-native to the Ithaca area (including yew, metasequoia, concolor fir, larch, and cedar), their unique features, and tips for their care in the home landscape. We’ll also look at some dwarf varieties in the Winter Garden. The walk will last approximately one hour. Please dress appropriately for the weather.
