Some of the topics include flower, shrub and tree gardening, pest and deer information, fruit and vegetable gardening, garden and landscape preparation, fall and spring rallies, plant exchanges and sale, projects such as making autumn arrangements, Christmas wreath making and centrepieces, etc.
In addition, trips around the county to special gardens are made during the summer months. Special dinners and potlucks are always a hit. Members will also receive copies of the Scotia Gardener magazine which gives information about all the garden clubs across the province. As well, members receive a membership card worth 10 per cent of plant purchases at most garden centres and an insurance plan.
Meetings are usually held at Glen Haven Manor (rear entrance) on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m. unless otherwise specified. Meetings are not held during the months of January and February.
Present club members hope you will give serious consideration in joining this informative and fun group. We hope to see you there. Why not come and bring a friend? If you have no transportation, that can be provided too.
This month’s speaker (Sept. 22) will be Dennis Fanning, local landscaper, who will do a presentation on landscaping in autumn, the plants to choose, how to divide perennials in autumn, pavers, walls, patio stones, and natural stones. As you can tell there is something for everyone.
