Fall approaches!

Garden Club Members and Friends,  

We know it is fall when the pumpkins and mums appear in the watering trough!  Looks beautiful!  

Cheryl Monroe was a terrific speaker for our first meeting of the year.  I know I am now looking around my yard thinking about creating charming vignettes. We get to look forward to hearing about cacti and succulents with Art Scarpa in October.  

Lynn Taff and I attended the Middlesex District Presidents' coffee this morning.  Betty Sanders, the new GCFM President was there to talk about her priorities and answer questions.  The question I had concerned communication. I receive many emails to disseminate to the Club from the GCFM, but they can come in random bunches.  As I do not want to inundate members with too frequent emails, I have decided to do a weekly, if needed, update on the website, followed by an email blast to the Club with links to the new information.  You will be receiving the first shortly.  In particular, I point you too the information on the upcoming Horticultural mornings and sign ups for Back to Basics and Design workshops.  

Best, Jessica Pohl

Here is a reminder or a tip from Bill Cullina, Director of the Coastal Maine Botanical Garden.  

Mix one  regular aspirin plus 1 tsp dish soap plus 1 gal water, mix, spray plants every 3 weeks to boost immune response of plants.  Used on orchids, vegetables, African violets . Indoor plants can be sprayed year round. Outdoor plants during growing season. Effective against bacterial and fungal diseases.  There is a potassium salt product which is very effective called Agri Fos Fungicide.
