Shearing of the Heather

I stumbled across this in the email inbox yesterday; I think everyone has to do this at least once in their life!!

Each April, members of the Northeast Heather Society join our horticulture staff to shear the heathers, a task that encourages dense horizontal growth and helps ensure the Fort Tryon Heather Garden is one of the finest in the northeast. You can also join the bagpipe procession through the garden, make boutonnieres and take the Heather Quiz.
