A lot of work goes into our holiday greenery sale. 🌲 Large branches need to be processed into smaller cuttings, organized by plant species, and any leftover debris needs to be swept and taken to the woodchipper. That's why we're thankful for our volunteers including the volunteers from M&T Bank for the quick work they made of the piles of holly, spruce, and juniper.

Garden blooms have come and gone, but you’ll still find stunning scenes at the DCH gardens during these colder months. You’ll find that we leave cone flowers standing for their winter interest and for birds to feed on.
