Gardening tools for Senior

Senior Gardening Day at Portland Nursery

Senior Gardening Activities

Sponsors Home Instead and Portland Nursery are teaming up again to bring a variety of hands-on activities and special gardening demonstrations with the elder gardeners of our community especially in mind.

Tables will be set up under cover (dry if rainy, shaded if sunny) in amongst beautiful and blooming displays, where people can relax, pot up crocus bulbs, make lavender sachets and learn about fall container gardening

Visit with friends while enjoying refreshments and live music: Reggie Houston’s Box of Chocolates, a perennial favorite, will be back with New Orleans swing and period jazz standards that our visitors to this event have tapped their toes and danced to for years (yes, there is always room to dance at this event!).

    Trying to start a halfway decent garden, so is there a particular type of gardening glove that's better than any-old glove? What about a root-puller-upper for weeding? I guess I just don't know what a professional gardener would use as their "hammer and nails" if that makes any sense. Any green-thumbs out there care to share?
