Welcome to the Farmington Garden Club


The Public is Welcome

Foolproof Hydrangeas - April 10, 2017    11:30
Stanley-Whitman House, 37 High St., Farmington
Speaker:  Lorraine Ballato

No garden is complete without this queen of American shrubs. Through slides and discussion, you'll learn all about hydrangeas, including recent introductions that have hit the market, their proper care, and the hardy cultivars that perform well despite over-enthusiastic pruning and finicky weather. You'll leave this talk never again having to ask the question, "Why doesn't my hydrangea bloom?"

Ticks:  It's More Than Just Lyme Disease - May 8, 2017   11:30
Stanley-Whitman House, 37 High St., Farmington
 Speaker:  Dr. Kirby Stafford III, Ph.D, Chief Entomologist, CT Agricultural Experiment Station

Tick-associated diseases are increasing. The CDC estimates there are 300,000 cases of Lyme disease each year. The black-legged ticks (deer ticks) carry four other pathogens that cause human disease.  Dr. Stafford will review the epidemiology of Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases, basis tick biology, and his research on various practical and experimental methods of tick-bite prevention and tick control.
