Citizens around the city have offered to build and maintain butterfly habitat gardens to help butterflies thrive in our area. The Taylor Garden Club has won national recognition for this great community endeavor, so be sure to check out the gardens at Herigate Park (Knopf House and Petting Farm)

New Gardens at the Conservatory
As most gardeners know, gardens are a dynamic, ever-changing environment. Flowers bloom at different times of the season, plants grow out of their space and need to be moved, some die, in spite of our best efforts. We are always changing at the TCF gardens, too. This spring we’ve added an incredible front entrance to warmly welcome visitors inside the Rotunda. The entrance is an aluminum arch with decorative finial on top and covered with two beautiful espaliered Keefer Pear trees, grown by Espalier tree-expert Peter Thevenot, of River Road Farms in Tennessee. We’ve also add new knot gardens, a wonderful front entrance garden and two bluestone mosaics that include cobbles all the way from the streets of Dublin, Ireland.
