November in arboretum
November is a wonderful time to visit the arboretum. Take a walk along Ridge Road and enjoy the change in the air and fragrance among the mature eastern hemlocks.
Thank you, Members
Thank you, Volunteers
Thank you, Staff

This has been an amazing year for Friends of Laurelwood Arboretum. Many children and adults attended our educational programs and community activities. Many, many people enjoyed the tours led by our well-informed tour guides. Art at the Arboretum, our first-ever major fundraiser, was a resounding success. Each weekend and throughout the week, hundreds of visitors walked through the arboretum. And Laurelwood never looked more beautiful, thanks to our amazing volunteers and staff.

As we approach Thanksgiving, I would like to thank each and every volunteer who worked in the gardens, served on our Board of Directors, worked on a committee, and was behind everything that FOLA does. Thank you, too, to our dedicated Executive Director, Horticultural Manager, gardeners, Office Manager and Knippenberg Center greeter, all of whom we depend upon for the work we do. I also want to thank every one of our 380+ members whose dues and contributions support all our efforts to beautify Laurelwood and offer interesting and exciting programs for our community.

Dear Elaine,

Are there any more garden tasks that I need to do to get the garden “ready for bed” this winter?
Thank you.
Dear Lily,

When late fall turns into winter, there are some house and garden chores to still consider for fun and safety:

  • If you are thinking of purchasing and planting a “live” Christmas tree this year, dig the hole outside before the ground freezes and cover the excavated soil so that it doesn’t freeze. Place the tree’s rootball in a tub or bucket big enough to hold it, and store the tree out of wind and sun for at least two days before bringing it into the house.  Mist down the needles and water the rootball just enough to get it damp, not wet.
