Opening Day at McLaughlin Garden & Homestead
Kathy Murray, from the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry is the state's Integrated Pest Management Program Coordinator. All are welcome to hear her presentation at 2 pm in the historic barn.
Gardeners who are interested in pollinators and want to learn how to use beneficial insects to combat garden problems will enjoy the presentation. Ornamental gardeners are concerned about the best way to safely get rid of (or at least limit damage) from pest insects such as the lily leaf beetle, aphids, and Japanese beetles. Vegetable gardeners also battle insect pests.
Wildflower Celebration tours will take place Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, led by the horticulture director, at 12:30 PM. The garden and plant sale will be open from 10-4 pm. Also, our new self-serve café will be open with coffee, tea, and treats supplied by Pietree Orchards.
If you have questions, please use our new email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 207-743-8820 between 10 AM and 4PM.
