FALL GARDENING KAREN BARBY from GREEN HAVEN GARDEN CENTRE
Fall is the second best time to garden and we also know that we will soon need to get our garden prepped for winter.
Karen will go over some of the best perennials that bloom in the fall, tell us what ones like to be divided at that time and some per- ennials or shrubs that actually do better planted in the fall. She will also give us some tips about get- ting our gardens ready to 6:30 – 8 p.m.
PERENNIAL / BULB SHARE: If you have any left over perennials that you have divided and don’t want to throw away, bring them with you to the presentation on Sept. 25th a little early (about 6:00 p.m.) in the back parking lot of the library, and we will share them amongst the members that want them. We will also have a bit of time after the presentation to distribute what is left. It is also a good time to give away those extra spring bulbs that keep multiplying or lily bulbs if you have too many.
October 23rd/2023 ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING 6:00—6:30 p.m.
We will be electing our President and setting up our Board of Directors for the next season 2023/2024. There is one position open on the board and if you wish to nomi- nate someone, this is your chance to do so. We will also review what funds were spent throughout the year and how the gardens fared throughout the season. The speaker will start as soon as the annual meeting has finished.
Please plan to attend this meeting.
