Fall Is In The Air !

Dear Garden Club Members and Friends,

Welcome back!  I hope that you were all able to enjoy a spectacular summer.  It's hard to believe that September is already here.  Our early morning sunrises are waning, but your gardens are probably all still holding onto the last taste of summer.  

Our first meeting is just around the corner and with it is our first competition.  Please consider bringing the fruits of your labor to the fall competition and share your successes with fellow members.  

A great year of programs, workshops, trips and classes have been planned for you to enjoy.  I encourage you to participate in competitions, workshops and trips that our club has planned. Take the opportunity to enroll in one of the GCFM's many classes that are offered during the year and expand your knowledge base.  Our website will have a direct link to the GCFM for you to access all that they have to offer our club.

The GCFM now has the Mayflower online and it will also be easily accessed from the website and will be included in your Green Sheets as it is published.

I encourage you to take full advantage of all that your garden club and the GCFM has to offer.  I look forward to a wonderful final year as your President.

I hope to see you at our meetings.
Fondly,
Dee Freiberg

GARDENING TIPS

Time to start to think about preparing your garden for winter and planting those bulbs.

  When temperatures go below 55 degrees, move tropicals and houseplants indoors after cleaning pots and spraying for insects…This is a good time to seed, de-thatch and aerate your lawn…Divide perennials (and add a few that you may find on sale now)…Continue dead-heading perennials…Cut peonies to the ground before first frost…Apply fertilizer (such as Hollytone) to established shrubs and trees.
