OCBA Installs Pollinator Garden at Historic Dickson House in Hillsborough

Members of OCBA’s gardening crew met at the Alexander Dickson House in Hillsborough on Saturday, Dec 11 at 9 AM to install a wonderful pollinator garden. We cut the sod off of the top, tilled the wonderful red clay, added a healthy dose of compost and tilled that in. We cut a nice edge around the bed and planted some of the bees favorites including varieties of salvia, anise, mint, sedum, aster, and others. After planting, we put a nice layer of double shredded hardwood mulch on top. We look forward to it coming alive as the weather warms in the spring.
