Spring is in the Air – Attention Gardeners!

Spring is in the air – the sap is running and the cardinals are singing!

Spring also means the start of the horticultural season. The year is shaping up to be fun, informative and exciting. Bookmarks highlighting the 2018 program of meetings are available at the Chamber, the Library and The Book Lady.

The first meeting of the year is on Monday, March 26. Judy Seymour will lead a step by step workshop to make a spring centrepiece. Even non-crafters will be able to produce an attractive arrangement. Please bring $5.00 for materials and wire cutters if you have them.

On April 23 Vikki Whitney from Griffin’s Greenhouses will talk about container gardening for spring and summer. Vikki is a delightful speaker and she will be putting together a planter as well.

The popular plant sale is on Saturday morning May 26 at The Salvation Army Citadel, 42 Bond St. There will be lots of top quality plants from local gardens.

The topic at the meeting on May 28 is landscape design using a natural, ecological and sustainable approach. Helen Batten is an award – winning landscape architect from Basterfield Associates in Peterborough.

As well as these monthly meetings, the Fenelon Falls Horticultural Society plants and maintains many of the gardens in town. In recent years many of the gardens have been redesigned and spruced up. This year watch for lots of activity on the slope beside the canal into Sturgeon lake with the hedge saying “Fenelon Falls”. Volunteers most welcome. Please contact Laurie Jones 705-887-5300 to help.

No gardening experience required to come out and enjoy the monthly meetings. So, come along to the Seniors Club at 58 Murray Street at 7pm for an interesting and friendly evening.

Everyone is welcome and membership is only $20 for the year.
