Thank you volunteers for such a terrific 2021 growing season! Now it is time for a well-earned rest.

In the meantime, enjoy a video about how to divide dahlias from our Dahlia Queen – Antonietta. Please note that we initially wrapped our tubers in plastic wrap, but found they were rotting, so moved them to bins with vermiculite or peat moss. Thank you to our volunteer videographer Leslie Heffron!

Cape Ann’s beautiful natural environment and colorful seaside gardens perpetually inspire artists, designers, landscapers and now a growing community of civic-minded gardening enthusiasts.  As part of the seven million dollar seawall reconstruction project along Stacy Boulevard, numerous garden beds were installed and Gloucester’s volunteer group of Generous Gardeners planted them with thousands of colorful flowers. A riot of color is now enjoyed by all who stroll along the iconic boulevard. Generous Gardeners has also enhanced the rough charm of Gloucester’s working waterfront filling over 45 public spaces with beautiful bulbs, annuals and perennials. Contact Susan Kelly at susan@generousgardeners.org or 781-346-1363 to volunteer or learn more.
