Gardening with Native Plants

Buds & Blossoms Mercer Garden Club Newsletter October 2009

Message from the President

  October is one of my favorite months.  The leaves are turning and the few warm sunny days we have left will be put to good use planting bulbs for next spring and cleaning up the garden to get everything ready for another cold, snowy winter.  I even love collecting leaves for my compost pile.   

Our meeting will be at The United Methodist Church on Butler Street at 6:30, Oct. 12.  Diana Jackel and Nancy Connelly will be hosting the meeting this month and have planned the program.

Meeting Agenda:
     6:30 p.m.: Short business meeting
     Finalize plans for fall clean up of Uptown Beds
Collect the survey passed out at the last meeting and sent with the newsletter.  Please
bring yours to the meeting.
     7:15: Program and refreshments
I hope to see more of you at our October meeting!
