Milton Garden Club Falls Back into Milton

Posted: Updated:

MILTON, Del. - The Milton Garden Club is switching gears for the colder months. WRDE's meteorologists says that the town experienced its first frost of the season on Saturday. 

The Milton Garden Club has more than 100 planters across town and members keep a constant eye on the flowers. When it starts to get too frosty, many of the the flowers are swapped out for mums, cabbages, kale and winter pansies. The club aims to beautify Milton year-round. This is part of the club's Fall Back into Milton project.

Holly Fest Chair Sandy Winterbottom says the plants will start shriveling up when it's time for them to go to sleep. "Our girls come in and they clean out their beds and a lot of the perennials we leave in because they'll fall down, but it's great for the birds and the insects," she says. "They eat them during the winter time."

On the day after Thanksgiving the Milton Garden Club will re-decorate its planters for this year's Holly Fest, an all-day event that takes place on December 14th. The club's members will be set up at the Milton Historical Society.
