RGC members maintain the Winter Garden at the JC Raulston Arboretum as a place that sparkles with the color and form of bark, berries, and flowers during the cool season. Volunteers work with Arboretum staff to help with design, plant selection, maintenance, and keeping plant records.
There are always weeds to pull and cutting back to do, also new plants to discover,fragrance in the air and the fellowship of other gardeners.
We have also made wintertime visits to Montrose, Duke and private gardens in previous years.

A Winter Garden Walk - February 2019
The Winter Garden was looking beautiful for the tour during the Winter Garden Symposium this past February. Cyndy, our chair, took a few moments to comment on the garden and its history.
