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.
