Green Gossip: It’s TOO Hot for the PHS Pop-Up Garden

It's too hot outside for the PHS Pop Up GardenDamn, it’s hot outside…

Newsworks reported that the PA Horticultural Society (PHS)’s Pop Up Garden closed yesterday due to the unbearable heat. The long tables that welcome locals during lunch hours instead were vacant, with a sign stating it’s too hot & humid.

“When you get temperatures this hot, the plant breathing cells on the underside of the leaves, they close down,” said Eileen Gallagher, PHS Project Manager. The garden is expected to reopen today or tomorrow in time for nutrition demonstration “Foodie Friday”.

The PA Horticultural Society is hosting its annual Pop-Up Garden at 1905-15 Walnut Street. You’ll find raised beds with veggies and herbs, annuals and perennials, fruit trees & shrubs and much more! It’s typically open Tues-Fri from 11 AM – 2 PM, Thursday venings from 5-7 PM and 2nd Saturday of each month from 9 AM – 1 PM.
