Out with the old, in with the new! Horticultural staff and volunteers have been hard at work removing the bulbs from the Big Bloom and replacing it with a gorgeous summer annual display. We are so fortunate to have a whole nursery operation that grows and nurtures these plants in the greenhouse before they’re put in the ground.
