Enjoying the fun of the season with Autumn at the Arboretum

By  | 

ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) ----- Fall marks harvest season, and for those looking to get a jumpstart on next year's planting, the Klehm Arboretum's Bulb Sale comes at the perfect time.

Held as part of the garden's Autumn at the Arboretum, the free community celebration is a leafy wonderland for kids and families, full of fun activities, like a straw bale maze, tractor rides, build your scarecrows and more.

With the frost slowly taking over, the new addition of the specialty plants gives visitors a bonus that they can enjoy long after the day wraps up.

"The fall bulb sale, so we have some great fall bulbs, so this is a great time to plant them if you want to have a beautiful yard, beautiful landscape in spring, we selected some really great varieties, some really interesting flowers and just different types that people can come and check out and hopefully take home to plant," said Alex Mills.

All the money raised by the Fall Bulb Sale helps maintain the garden's grounds and supports Klehm's various educational programs.
