The Love Garden, located across the street from the Green in the center of Glastonbury, is named in honor of Paul Love, who voluntarily spent countless hours maintaining many public gardens around town.
As part of the Glastonbury tercentennial celebration in 1992, his perennial garden was created, and Country Gardeners volunteered to maintain it.
Club members purchase plants, fertilizer, and mulch as needed. All members take turns weeding, dead-heading, fertilizing, mulching, and watering the garden weekly during the growing season.
Working with a partner has made the garden maintenance more enjoyable. It allows us to share information and techniques bout the plants we nurture.
Passers-by often express their appreciation for the beauty of this garden. A totally new garden design was implemented in the fall of 2011, and in the spring of 2012.
Thank you to all who came out this year to put our garden “to bed” for the winter. See you next year.
