Welcome to LIHort.org

Long Island Horticultural Society -- Celebrating over 80 years of promoting gardening on Long Island through friendships and education



All meetings are held at Planting Fields Arboretum State Historic Park in Oyster Bay


November 13, 2016

1:30 doors open

2:00  Speaker: Millie Hendricks

Topic:   Magical Wonders

      As usual, Millie has filmed videos in her garden of whatever seemed the most interesting throughout the season. There are familiar flowers with extraordinary hidden talents and fascinating things to know about the backgrounds of plants you probably have in your garden. There's always wildlife - a beautiful rose breasted grosbeak who has just returned from winter in South America, and on the 4th of July, a Great Spangled Fritilary butterfly who has an unusual life cycle. And there are always a lot of small things in the garden that are easier to see on the big screen than in real life. Millie's favorite thing this year is a "stump the experts" red flower which she thinks no one will be able to identify.

      Come see Millie as she takes us through the magical wonders of her garden!
