It’s so hard to believe we are yet again on the brink of that lovely fall time of year – when the breeze suddenly has such a refreshing crispness and the sky an intense blue that has been strangely absent all summer. And once again, the celebrated Philadelphia Horticultural Society (PHS) has some wonderful events lined up to make your fall Philadelphia landscaping experience even more memorable.
So what is in store for Main Line residents and visitors who want to get out and enjoy the delights of the season?
- Private Gardens of Owings Mill – This sight-seeing treat will be an all-day excursion. On Wednesday, September 14, 2016, this PHS jaunt will give spectators a close-up look into the design and development of three private but very different gardens as well as a lunch and tour of the Irvine Nature Center.
- Twilight in the Arboretum – Enjoy something a little out of the ordinary with a glimpse of the Barnes Arboretum After Hours on Wednesday, September 14. Bring a supper picnic, enjoy the musical entertainment on the lawn and bask in the complete sensory experience of magical gardens at twilight. This is bound to be an evening to remember for Main Line residents and visitors as well.

- Meadowbrook Farm Fall Plant Party – Make September 17 a fun and educational day for the whole family and head to Meadowbrook Farm, where everyone can enjoy an abundance of colorful autumn favorites and other plants for sale. Throughout the Meadowbrook Fall Plant Party, there will be informative talks and demos on topics such as container planting, fall color selection, the best flowers for stunning arrangements and how to grow and propagate African violets. Folks can tour the house and historic gardens of Pennock House as well as enjoy the petting zoo.
- Chanticleer Garden – On October 15, this renowned garden will be hosting a workshop entitled Putting the Garden to Bed. This Chanticleer workshop is designed to equip Main Line residents and visitors with essential techniques and tips to make the most of their autumn gardening chores – in anticipation for a spring garden that will be more glorious than ever.
