The Garden Club will be planting the flower baskets for DeRivera Park on Tuesday, May 14th, and Wednesday, May 15th at 9 a.m. With our new baskets and brackets, our procedure will be a little different this year. We will be planting all of the baskets on the ground on Tuesday, so we will need the bulk of volunteers Tuesday, rather than on Wednesday as in previous years. Then on Wednesday, we will hang all of the baskets using a lift. Please plan to come on Tuesday and bring gloves, garden trowels, buckets, brooms and wheel barrows.
The first Garden Club program will be on Thursday, May 23rd, at 4:30 p.m. at the PIB Yacht Club, and will explore Dividing and Trans-planting Perennials. This will include demonstrations of dividing different types of perennials, time of year to transplant and much more. We will also have plant tags and some pots to distribute for the Plant Exchange on June 13th.
