Garden Through the Year
with Peggy Singlemann:


Join horticulturist and Virginia Home Grown host Peggy Singlemann at the Garden for information sessions on a variety of seasonal gardening topics. Peggy offers timely tips for your garden and all programs include a walk in the Garden with Peggy to illustrate examples.

Just when the annuals are starting to wilt from the heat and humidity, perennials come to the rescue, perking up your summer garden with color and texture. And, in our mild climate, these summer performers offer interest well into our mild fall season.


Our Garden continues to follow CDC recommendations and state guidelines for preventing the spread of COVID-19. Properly worn masks are required for indoor class participants regardless of vaccination status. Non-vaccinated participants are also required to wear masks when outdoors and unable to maintain 6 feet of social distancing. The Garden reserves the right to implement additional safety measures. Any updates will be communicated prior to class, if possible.

All programs are subject to change.
