On a day after a drenching rain, members of the Friends of Christopher Columbus Park’s horticulture group waded into the soggy soil and planted 300 daffodil bulbs in the crescent garden near the trellis. The bulbs provided through the city’s Boston Blooms with Daffodils program were in prime condition, so hopes for a spectacular spring display are high.
The horticulture group is wrapping up for the season, but anyone interested in sharing the joys of gardening with an enthusiastic group of people can become an FOCCP member and volunteer in the spring. No experience needed. Direction is given and tools provided.
