Would you like to incorporate wildflowers into your garden?  You can learn how to grow and maintain them, plus other valuable information by joining the Master Gardener Volunteers at the next FREE Walking Tour of the Pitt County Arboretum on Thursday, June 2nd.  The tour will begin at 9:00 AM in front of the Ag Center under the Green Roof Shelter (you'll see the 'Garden Tour' sign when you drive up to the building).   Click on the map link on the right for directions to the Ag Center/Arboretum.

The tour will last about an hour and is given rain or shine.  Here is a sneak preview of what you will see in bloom at the Arboretum's award winning Wildflower Garden.
