By Beth Whipple, Horticulturist

As you make your way to the Helen S. Layer Rhododendron garden to check out the spring blooms and to visit the Judith and Maynard H.

Restoration. Rejuvenation. Fresh start. It’s time to get back in shape. It’s time to get pruning!

We’ll start with last autumn and go right up to last week.
