RE: Tennessee Gardener Article

After working for over a month on some very over-grown beds, the lawyer for
the Knoxville Botanical Gardens advised to halt volunteer work until the
director is selected, July 1 goal, and insurance can be increased to
adequately cover volunteers.  Although we were making just a small dent in
the overgrowth, we were working in the gardens near the house that was
pictured and along one of the stone walls...just weeding and mulching but
clearing showing the promise.  

If all goes well, it should be a beautiful place in a couple of years.  So,
I now am only volunteering in the UT Trial Gardens.  For the past four
weeks, I've been assigned to the herb garden...someone let one of the beds
get overgrown with some Asian "horsetail" ? and it has been the devil to
remove...actually spread under brick walks and into other beds.  Reminded
me of some of the comments about sloppy gardening.  I will admit that one
of the things I have learned working there is that I need to prune, shape,
and remove plants that seem to overgrow others.  I am more inclined to just
let them go.

The Trial Gardens are looking great...getting ready for "Blooms Day", a new
program started last year...walk-a-around seminars conducted by
specialists, booths, family fun things, vendors.
