The Display Garden at Heritage Museums and Gardens in Sandwich began as a partnership with the Cape Cod Hydrangea Society in 2010. It is home to a collection of H. macrophylla, H. paniculata, H. serrata, H. aborescens, H. quercifolia, H. aspera, and H. involucrata.
The first hydrangeas planted in the Display Garden were generously donated by CCHS members, and the garden has grown to include more than 200 hydrangeas. With the ongoing efforts of CCHS members we have established a fine collection with many difficult to find cultivars. All CCHS members are invited to join the Display Garden Maintenance Team and work together to increase our knowledge and enjoyment of hydrangeas, while caring for the hydrangea collection.
Our work includes spring cleanup, pruning, prepping for the Hydrangea Festival, bud counting, weeding, and drying blooms in the fall. Workshops and informational talks are scattered throughout the season. Maintenance work in the Display Garden begins in April, 2019 on Wednesdays. Mark your calendar, and sign up for work days at the General Meeting in May, or contact Paula Rushworth at [email protected]
Work sessions are from 9:30-12:00. Dates for 2019: April 3,10,17, 24…..May 1,15, 29…. June 12, 26….July 10, 24 August 7, 21…September 4,18
Hope to see you in the Display Garden where “Hands on Learning” never ends
