This just in from the Promenade Gardner, Jonathan Landsman:
Congratulations, Brooklyn Heights, the garden at the Montague Street entrance to the Promenade won Parks Department’s Garden of the Month last April!
This season, to keep the garden excellent, I’ll be putting some finishing touches on that garden’s shrubs. On Friday at noon I’ll prune the garden’s specimen hydrangeas—the best two shrubs on the Promenade—and make my best effort to demonstrate good pruning, giving tips and answering questions for anyone interested.
Friday, Aug 20 at about noon to 1: You’re invited to bring your lunch to the nearby benches and enjoy a little live-action gardening, and ask questions if you like.
