Gass Garden Spring 2012 Planting

PHMC historical marker and new plants across sidewalk from Gass House
Last Saturday's (April 28, 2012) cold and wet weather didn't deter Cindy Stead and her Gass Garden team from planting. Although not fun for folks doing the work, the plants themselves are better off going into the ground on cool, rainy spring days, to minimize transplant shock.

A soil berm is prepared for the planting of a Vine Maple
Previously, the team prepped the site by creating a soil berm for the vine maple, and planted the shade ground covers.

Popsicle sticks are useful to mark the placement of Lily of the Valley
