PORT TOWNSEND — Carol Middelburg, left, and Chris Walvatne are two of eight volunteer gardeners who help plant and maintain the garden areas around the Port Townsend Library.

In its third year, the group is concentrating on deadheading and pruning during this week.

The gardens have been re-established with drought-tolerant and deer resistant plants through a donation from the Library Foundation.

The hobby gardeners work Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. from May through October.
