THE Medowie Garden Club is holding a Plant sale on Saturday 25 March from 7.30am at the Medowie Community Centre Car Park.
The Garden Club regularly holds these sales to align with spring and autumn, to give locals the perfect opportunity to gather seasonally appropriate plants.
The plants have been grown by members and are suitable for Medowie and surrounding areas.
Members of the gardening club will also be on hand to answer any questions you may have about your plants and gardens, and can offer tried and true techniques and tips for improving your garden.
Medowie Garden Club member Ann Tomlinson told News Of The Area, “Previous plant sales have been very successful, even the sale in October 2016 for spring, where the weather was somewhat inclement.”
“The plants were well watered and one member was ecstatic with the weather, which was providing much need watering of everyone’s gardens, and showed his excitement, as pictured in the photograph.”
The proceeds from the plant sales are used to benefit members, by subsidising Club activities, such as outings to places of interest to the avid gardeners.
The Medowie Garden Club holds meetings on the first Saturday of each month, with the exception of January.
Gardeners and residents of Medowie are always welcome to attend.
The meetings are held at alternating member’s residences each month, who take turns hosting the Club and giving advice from their own gardens with tips and solutions that have helped them.
There are also outings arranged to open gardens and to growers markets, where growers are invited to give a talk on their speciality.
A recent talk was provided on growing and caring for irises and day lilies, something members of Medowie Garden Club found very educational and interesting.
Information on the Medowie Garden Club can be obtained by contacting the Secretary, Ann Tomlinson, on 4982 8870.
