The club’s first annual plant sale was a great success! The club realized $614.00. Many thanks to Nancy Cheever and her committee: Herta Wilson and Diane and Clayton Crandall.
At this time the South Park is reserved for the second plant sale May 2010, the same day as the village wide garage sales and the Mason’s chicken Bar-B-Q. Secured at the same time was reservation for June 2010, for the start of the Garden Tour.
Guest speakers for the May meeting were Ron & Donna James, and Jan Smith. Donna and Ron presented first with information regarding Hostas, and Iris’s. Ron and Donna own Enchantment Acres between Fulton and Hannibal. They have over 2500 species of Hosta, and I am sure as many species of Iris’s. Enchanted Acres will have a sale, auction and picnic August 2, 2009 from 10-2 PM. July 11 and 12 they will have a train garden tour.
Our second speaker, Jan Smith is a master gardener specializing in Iris’s. She shared her wealth of information acquired thru many years as showing and judging Irises.
