The Tuckaleechee Garden Club decided to plant four Redbud varietals as part of the 2021 National Garden Week. We selected: PomPom, Whitebud; Forest Pansy; & Merlot. They were planted on the top trail on each side of the Dogwood Tribe along US 321.
A big thanks goes to Rodney & Allison Pearson, Theresa & Scott Schehr and Mark Seder for taking time this week to make this planting happen. We also had a guest appearance by Mr. Bear, he wasn't much help but provided a well deserved distraction.
Take a look at the work that was done over 3 days to get the area prepared, then planted and mulched.
Tuesday Allison, Rodney & Mark laid out the area, removed the vegetation, and planted the Merlot Redbud.
Wednesday, Mark brought in mulch and dug the remaining tree holes.
Thursday, Theresa, Scott & Mark planted the three remaining trees & mulched.
