Wednesday 19th October – Tom and Joanie MacCubbin
One of Garden Club’s favourite speakers, Tom MacCubbin entertained us with interesting facts about the origins of some of the wonderful plants we grow here in Central Florida. From Caladiums to citrus, Tom told us who had introduced the plants and when. He then talked about the problems with each plant and gave advice about how to grow them in our gardens. During his talk he had frequent quiz questions and the winners received gifts, Joanie’s hand painted notelets, seeds, hand painted ceramic pots. Under Tom’s supervision Jill created a colourful container and was delighted when on completion Tom gave it to her. We had two sharing tables which we raffled, members were able to choose from a variety of items, from glass vases to cacti. Our refreshment team created a lovely selection of food with a Halloween theme.
