Durham Garden Forum

Triangle Gardening enthusiasts have a new educational source they can turn to for help with basic or complex gardening issues. The recently launched Durham Garden Forum gathers monthly to discuss gardening techniques. People can join the Forum for $25 annually (beginning in April) or pay $10 per meeting. Members need not live in Durham.

Each meeting is led by an expert in the featured topic, from horticulturists to landscape designers and members of the N.C. Cooperative Extension. Attendees will also be encouraged to share their experiences. Meetings are from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Sarah P. Duke Gardens, 420 Anderson St., Durham.

Forthcoming 2010 topics include: design (Feb. 9); blooming sequence (March 9); vegetable gardening (April 6); pests (May 11); garden diseases (June 15); and sustainable turf strategies (July 20). For information, e-mail Gene Carlone.


  1. Hi, I'd like to attend meeting on March 9. Could someone provide some info? I already sent an email but did not get a response yet. Many thanks.

  2. Sorry, AMC. As this is a 2010 post, I did not see your comment immediately.
    Did you hear back from the forum yet? If not, please call the Gardens' registrar at 668-1707 and you can give your information for someone from the forum to contact you. Thanks for your interest!
