On Thursday, January 27 the club had 15 people travel to Leu Gardens for a look at the vegetable and pollinator gardens. Director Robert Bowden gave us a two hour tour of their gardens and we learned about veggie gardening in Central Florida. He discussed soil preparation and amendments, fertilization, watering, timing and varieties to use. Then he talked about the various butterflies they try to attract and the plants they use to feed both the adult and larval stages of a butterflies life. Afterwards some of us went to lunch at a nearby restaurant
November 13 2021 Founders and Veterans day parade The garden Club managed to walk in the parade this year as well as doing their living flag. This year it was filled with Petunias. Barbara and Marge gave the Garden Clubs tribute to the Veterans.
Fred and Leslie Bartok and Dave and Tricia Alesbury worked in the Memorial Garden today and divided plants from the main bed and placed them around the sign to soften it. Take a look at the photos – we think it looks good! Many more people are visiting the Memorial Garden and are all appreciative of the efforts of Garden Club. Thanks to Rita’s watering efforts, the transplanted Tabebuia tree is flourishing and has flowered well this year.
