The Home Gardener and the New Perennial Movement
Tracing the origins and
current status of this garden design style, we will outline the
thinking behind it. Next, we will examine its relevance to our
home gardens, ending with a list of perennials that you might
like to try.
There is another new
activity for the December meeting. A kind of silent auction/draw
for gift baskets and other donated items on the 'Share the
Wealth' table. People will be able to purchase tickets and add
tickets to baskets in front of any desired item(s). When the
"bidding" is over, there will be a draw from the tickets for
meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month
from September to June at 7:30 p.m. They usually take
