The Rutgers Master Gardeners of Essex County are a group of volunteers who provide horticultural information and programs to the community.  Trained by faculty and staff of NJAES, Rutgers University, and by horticultural experts, the Master Gardeners are knowledgeable about a wide range of gardening subjects. 

RUTGERS GARDENS GARDENING NOTES FOR NOVEMBER:  November has dawned sunny and relatively warm. The frosts of October are bringing our trees into a bonanza of spectacular colors and the soil is certainly adequately moist to bring plants safely into the start of winter. We are removing the annuals at Rutgers Gardens as they are now frosted and brown and it is now time to plant for the spring bulb display!
