Great news for gardeners with questions

Just got this from the Scott Aboretum.
Sounds like a good thing...

Get the “Scott Scoop on Gardening” this Fall

Fall 2010 – This fall on Saturdays during the months of September and October get the “Scott Scoop on Gardening” in the Wister Center from 10 am to 2 pm. Visit the Scott Arboretum’s Wister Center to have your gardening questions answered, learn what is blooming in the Arboretum right now, and discover gardens and great plants you never know were here.

In response to community requests, Scott Arboretum is happy to offer this service to our weekend visitors. Volunteers will help visitors get the most out of their Arboretum experience, provide answers to their gardening questions, and introduce them to some of the most inspiring places at the Scott Arboretum.

The Scott Arboretum is an educational garden of ideas and suggestions. Covering more than 300 acres of the Swarthmore College campus and exhibiting over 4,000 different kinds of plants, the Arboretum displays some of the best trees, shrubs, perennials, and annuals for use in the Delaware Valley. Established in 1929 as a living memorial to Arthur Hoyt Scott, the Arboretum is open to the public year-round, free of charge, from dawn to dusk. Adam Levine in the November/December 2002 issue of Garden Design Magazine described the Scott Arboretum of Swarthmore College as “the most beautiful campus in America.” Office hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to noon and 1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. For more information, please call the Arboretum Offices at 610- 328-8025.
