Are your summer planters looking tired or parts have died off? Victoria Whitney from Griffins Greenhouses will show us how to give our planters a “punch of fall colour” to celebrate Autumn.
Come out and enjoy Vicki’s “Decorating for Fall”. Remember we are meeting back at Trinity Church this month so bring back those library books and choose some new ones!
There will also be a fall plant sale at this meeting. If you have been dividing your favourite plants, please bring a pot or two for our sale. Please bring only ‘special plants’ that we could sell for $3 or more. Make the pots a good size. Everyone likes a bargain!
New members welcome! Current members, be sure to bring a friend. Visitors are always welcome and no cost.
