Happy sultry summer day everyone! We finally have some real summertime weather, at least for a bit maybe….
Several things are happening this month with the club and here they are:
8/13/15 Tomorrow night! 6pm, Vermiculture class at the library-come learn how put worms to work for you
8/20/15 Pine River Garden Club monthly meeting. 6pm, this will be a work meeting, we will be sprucing up the garden area and dome, if you need help in your bed, show up and we will help you! We will be pulling weeds, dead heading, collecting seeds if they are ready and just doing whatever needs to be done. The beds look fabulous so come tell everyone what you are growing in yours or ask what is growing in someone else’s, get ideas for next year and get to know each other even better. We can also fill you in on what is happening with the zucchini extravaganza!!
8/23/15 Tour of gardens on CR 502/228 We had talked about this at a previous meeting and if folks are still interested then those of us on 502/228 would be happy to have you visit. We need to coordinate time and car pooling so if you are interested then please come to the meeting on Thursday the 20th and let us know. There are 4 gardens that you can check out, Barb and Eldon’s, Mimi’s, Kami’s, Bonnie and Lloyd’s. We probably have lots in common but I’m sure we each put our own spin on things too-I can hardly wait to see up close what my neighbors have done!
Spring Mountain Growers has many great perennials available too. As we start cooling down toward fall it is a great time to add perennials so they have time to settle in and then take off in the spring. The plants that I got from Spring Mountain earlier this summer are blooming and strong, truly superior plants! Click on the blue link for the latest list and see Cali’s descriptions of this week’s stars.
see you at the worm class or next week!
The Great List:
– Rudbeckia: Goldstrum in flats. Just beginning to bloom. Tall and splendid.
– Aster: Wartburg Star, there are gallons and flats. Blossom are starting now.
– Centranthis ruber: Red Valerian ‘Jupiter’s Beard’ is popular and these plants are healthy and full.
– Sempervivum: tectorum ‘Hens & Chicks’, producing new shoots, pots are packed, great bang for the buck.
– Lavender: Enjoyable and oh so fragrant. Flats and gallons available.
