Newsletter #1

Fellow Gardeners,

Hello and welcome to the first of four monthly newsletters from the Carefree Horticultural Seminar Committee. While we unfortunately had to cancel our Garden Seminar Series for this year and are truly disappointed to be unable to see you all in person, we would still like to keep in contact and share gardening information we hope you find timely and valuable.

In this first newsletter you will find articles related to tree care – planting guidelines, pruning, and how to select a tree expert. Additionally, as most of our travel adventures have been curtailed, we thought it might be fun to do some armchair traveling and bring some of the world’s most beautiful gardens to you. In this edition, we’ve included videos of the Huntington Botanical Gardens and Lotusland Garden in Santa Barbara, California, for your viewing pleasure.

Please enjoy and we wish you a New Year filled with hope and the promise of better things to come. We look forward to seeing you again when our Seminar Series resumes in 2022. In the meantime, keep well, keep safe, and keep gardening!
