Spend Tuesday in The Garden Door

The Door County Master Gardeners are pleased to announce “Tuesday in The Garden Door,” the second in a series of new programs held in the display garden, will be held Sept. 13 at 6 pm. This series celebrates the 12th anniversary of their free public display garden, The Garden Door.

The Sept. 13th 90-minute program features three Door County Master Gardener Volunteers. These informative presentations will use the garden for demonstration purposes. “The Joys of A Pond” will feature Jim McFarlin, who has developed extensive knowledge managing the pond and brings hands-on experience to his presentation. Doug and Barb Henderson will provide a detailed look at the Garden Door’s spiral garden and demonstrate working with hypertufa, homemade Portland cement garden containers. Jim Baxter will present “Big Rocks in the Wrong Places – What to Do.” Get some ideas about dealing with the rocks of Door County. Each presentation lasts roughly 20 minutes and there will be time for questions.

Attendees will also have the chance to visit and wander through this beautiful public display garden as it begins to show its fall colors. This program is free and open to the public. There is very limited seating in the garden and participants are encouraged to bring a folding lawn chair.

Tuesday in The Garden Door is held at the UW Peninsular Research Station in Sturgeon Bay. For further information visit
