When you are doing a self-guided tour of the Arboretum, you will find educational signs along the way.  Each sign will give you a brief summary relating to the garden it is placed in.  For instance, the Butterfly Garden sign shows steps to create your own Butterfly Garden as well as pictures of common butterflies found in Pitt County.  The Herb Garden sign gives you tips on how to successfully grow herbs in our climate and displays examples of annual and perennial herbs to try.  Two new signs are being installed soon to bring the total number to 13.   Something new has been added to all of our educational signs at the Arboretum:  QR CODES.  Just scan the code with your smartphone for links to more gardening aids.  This code below is the link to the Pitt County Arboretum site.
