June has been a busy month for the Garden Club, with replacing plants lost over the rough winter, reviewing sprinkler coverage for the DeRivera Park Gardens and getting netting up on the hanging baskets for protection from the Mayflies. We also hosted our first and very successful plant exchange, held at the Yacht Club. Thanks to Susan Hildebrandt and her team for all their hard work!
Our June meeting was held on June 27th with Susan presenting a Master Gardener’s program on Success with Succulents. The program covered all aspects of successfully growing succulents, and will be followed up with our August 22nd meeting with a hands-on program with succulents. Please join us.
The Catawba Island Garden Club has invited PIBGC members to a Luncheon on Tuesday, July 23rd, to include a special presentation by Jim Stouffer on Great Lake Erie. The program and luncheon is $22 with reservations needed by July 12th. Contact Jodi Hawk at Tomahawk44@twc.com for reservations and more information.
Lamp post brackets formerly used in DeRivera Park are available. Anyone interested can contact Barb Hunter at firstname.lastname@example.org. We also have large bags of potting soil available for sale at our cost of $25.00.
