It is easy to have a great looking garden in May and June.  But the true test of a plant here in Eastern Carolina will come in July and August.  Hot, humid weather and irregular rainfall take its toll on all living things.

Come out to the Pitt County Arboretum this Thursday, August 4th for a free walking tour.  Master Gardener Volunteers will be highlighting perennials, shrubs, trees, herbs, and even vegetables which are thriving and which are not!

The tour begins at 9:00 AM under the Green Roof Shelter in front of the Ag Center Building (click on the map link in the right column for directions).  The tour lasts about an hour and is given rain (wouldn't that be nice?) or shine.  Bring your friends, neighbors, and your questions!
