Plants for Sensory Stimulation to be presented at January meeting of Horticultural Society

The meeting will be held on Tuesday, Jan. 8, in Cherry Hill.

The Horticultural Society of South Jersey will meet on Tuesday, Jan. 8 at 7 p.m. at the Carman Tilelli Community Center, 820 Mercer Street in Cherry Hill.

The presentation at the January meeting is entitled “Plants for Sensory Stimulation (Fragrance, Touch and Sound).” The presenter will be Bruce Crawford, director of Rutgers Gardens.

Typically, we only focus on the sense of sight when designing a garden. However, in order to make a garden as “complete” of an experience as possible, elements that stimulate the remaining four senses need to be incorporated. Plants for Sensory Stimulation looks at a number of those plants that impact the senses beyond sight and how best they can be incorporated into the garden.

This event is free to attend and open to the public. For more information, visit, call (856) 287–5959 or visit
