Four new gardens for Theodore Roosevelt Park
These magnificent women weeded between cobblestones, raked up and bagged dried leaves, prepared soil beds, and planted perennial and flower bulbs. They created four gardens between Bull Moose Dog Run and Columbus Avenue.
Planting perennials and flower bulbs
Our volunteers planted hundreds of perennials: hellebore, Japanese forest grass, corabelle, astilbe, hosta, anemone, fox glove, and red twig dogwood. They also planted thousands of flower bulbs: Spanish bluebells; miniature golden daffodils; tall white daffodils; fragrant paperwhites; winged snowdrops; purple alliums; and purple, red and golden tulips.
Visit us from March through October to see how much color these new gardens add to Roosevelt Park!
