Garden Visit: Joyce

Remember Joyce's talk on container gardening in March? Now we have the chance to see her garden in action. The vegetables are doing great. Wait till you see the potatoes! She has 13 Hostas in raised beds and they are very happy this year with minimal slug damage. Some of them are just starting to bloom, as is the Astilbe. Maybe the Clematis will cooperate and start blooming too.

June 17, 4:30-6 pm
Directions will be emailed to club members soon.
