Putting the Fall Garden to Bed, presented by Bill Karges

Bill worked for Pioneer Garden & Feed for close to 50 years. He was manager, chief botanist, and all-around dispenser of gardening information.  Bill will walk us through Fall garden clean-up do’s and don’ts.  He will also explain why waiting until spring for major clean-up of beds is encouraged by many naturalists.

We are the Hoffman Estates Garden Club (HEGC), working since 1957 to promote an interest in gardening and share our knowledge.  Click here to read the article, “The History of the Hoffman Estates Garden Club” posted in the  March/April 2022 issue of the Hoffman Estates Citizen newsletter.
