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 dawned sunny and relatively warm.  The rain at the end of October was very welcome and the soil is now adequately moist to bring plants safely into the start of winter.  Oddly, there has not been a major frost in Central and Southern NJ as of November 2, which is a bit unusual.  Regardless, we are removing the annuals at Rutgers Gardens, since many have simply become tired and it is time to plant the spring bulb display!
