Tanya Chesire won the 50/50 drawing and
Joan Prasky won the beautiful bromeliad hostess centerpiece.SMART PHONE APP FOR THE GARDEN TIP: Vice President, Jill Thompson, had a very interesting tip for us. There is an app for smartphones that will help you with your gardening. It is called "Beesmart". Just search on your smartphone for the app. It will help you decide on plants for your garden, i.e., search your zip code, then amount of light, then amount of water, then shrub, tree or plant; then flowering, etc. You get the idea. GREAT TIP JILL! NEW GARDEN CLUB DEVELOPMENTS:
Joan Prasky and Maureen Tuber will be hosting a one day flower arranging class. Details have not been decided yet. Check the website often for the latest developments.
Beginning October 2013, everyone is encouraged to bring their plant cuttings or new plants they have started to the monthly meetings. These plants will be left at the front door for anyone to take. We suggest leaving a $1 donation that will go to the Garden Club. There is no requirement to bring a plant to exchange ... there are plenty of members who have more than enough they would rather give away than throw away. You know how we gardeners are.
Request that you bring any plastic nursery pots to the meetings. Many members need them to start new plants.Visit Tom MacCubbin online at:
