azaleas transplanted to McFarlane Nature Park.
On November 14, 40 volunteers planted donated azaleas in their new homes.
Jeff Miller, of Blade
and Bush landscaping, donated his crew and his time to dig the
azaleas at our neighbor's home.
Their roots were wrapped in burlap and then they were moved to
the Park. The crew had already dug 52 holes for the plants. Master
Gardeners dug the remaining six.
Forty volunteers positioned the
transplanted azaleas in their new homes. Distancing was easy on 11.5
acres with azaleas being planted around the perimeter of the Park and
all volunteers wore their masks.
Boy Scouts from Troop 797 followed
in the afternoon with mulch.

|We also received 20 new native azaleas from hybridizer Earl Sommerville of Marietta GA.
These smaller plants will winter over in a protected location to be
planted out early next spring, bringing the total collection to 132
individual plants. See what Earl's plants will look
