Gardening

Long Islanders are fortunate to have a relatively mild climate that affords many options in planning a home garden. We are very proud of our green lawns, perennial gardens, ornamental trees, pond and container gardens, not to mention our vegetable gardens.

Cornell Cooperative Extension offers research-based support to gardeners with online horticulture leaflets, gardening schools and master gardener classes. Homeowners can bring soil and plant samples to our diagnostic labs for help determining treatment or amendments. And our youngest residents can learn to plant their own gardens at the Children’s Garden at the Suffolk County Farm in Yaphank.
