2023 Season Review

We had a great gardening season this year in Forsyth County! Our area experienced first frost during the first week of November, ending the season for many annuals and tender perennials. Thanks for following along with us this season – keep scrolling for more photos of what bloomed this year!

Thanks to our NC State Extension Master Gardener Volunteers in Forsyth County for helping compile this season’s photos and plant information.


Early spring bloomers included fall-planted bulbs and perennials. We especially enjoy the native spring ephemerals that bloomed in March and April.
