October Meeting

We are very excited to have Amy Ziffer speaking at our October 13th meeting. We are joining with the Upstate NY Hosta Society to host the event. The meeting will begin at 10 am at the Cooperative Extension offices on Martin Rd. in Voorheesville. Join us on Saturday, October 13th, to hear a great talk on how to make your shade gardens better. Bring a friend and a dish to share.

For twenty years Amy has been experimenting to find the best shade-tolerant plants for the Northeast. Shade Revealed, a talk abundantly illustrated with beautiful photography, focuses on what makes some shade plants better performers than others. She presents a clear basis for shade garden design with the goal of long-term success based on appropriate plant selection, and she showcases plants with exceptional and unusual qualities that can help shade gardeners achieve a more satisfying shade garden with a long season of bloom.

Holiday Party

It’s not too soon to start thinking about the Holidays! This year’s gathering will again be a joint celebration with UNYHS (Upstate NY Hosta Society) and will be Saturday, December 8th at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in their fellowship hall on Rt. 146 in Clifton Park. Please note the date – more details in upcoming newsletters.

UNYHS will again have their photo contest. If you have hosta photos, you are welcome to join in the fun. Photos must be printed in 5″ X 7″ size for the contest with no frames or mats.

The categories for this year’s photo contest are as follows:
Category 1: Best Hosta Close-up. Get up close. Focus on a single leaf or just a few at most. Give us lots of detail.
Category 2: Best Picture of an Entire Mature Hosta Clump. Make sure it’s a well grown clump. Give us a sense of its total impact on the senses. Make sure to identify the plant for us.
Category 3: Best Landscape Picture Showing Multiple Clumps of Hosta. Identify all the Hostas in the photo and keep the focus on the Hostas.
Category 4: Best Landscape Picture Involving Hosta. Can include other plants, garden structures or other non-plant accessories.
Category 5: Artistic Impression. Let your imagination run wild, but the photo must contain a Hosta element. Can include digital manipulation (Photo shopping), montage, wildlife, etc. If there are any people in the photo they must be identified in the entry. If they are not, your entry will not be considered complete.

Plant Swap

Since we didn’t hold the September meeting, there was no plant swap. However, we will discuss the idea at meetings with an eye to

getting the swap organized for next year. September may be a good month to hold the plant swap – and instead of limiting the plants to daylilies, we could open it up to all kinds of plants – perennials, houseplants, etc.

Annual Sale

Our main source of income for the club is our Annual Sale. It is through the hard work and generosity of our members that we are able to finance many of our events throughout the year. The daylilies that we sell are all donated by members from their gardens and we have lots and lots of beautiful daylilies for the sale. Any help you can give is sincerely appreciated. Even if you can only spare a few hours to lend a hand, it makes a lighter load for others.

Monday, August 13th at 8 am we will meet at Christl Schmidt’s house to dig the daylilies Christl is donating. Her address is 23 Tanners Lane, Rensselaer, NY 12144.

Tuesday, August 14th at 8 am we will meet at Marge Moon’s house to dig her donated daylilies. Marge’s address is 555 Grooms Rd., Clifton Park, NY 12065

Marge has also generously volunteered her yard for our work days. All the donated plants will be gathered at Marge’s house. We will meet there at 8 am on Thursday, August 16th and Friday, August 17th. The daylily clumps need to be washed of all soil, divided into individual fans, washed again and dried, and sorted into bags (which have been previously labeled with all the information on each daylily). They are then placed in boxes for transport to Faddegon’s on Saturday morning. It is an arduous and exacting process and it usually takes us the two full days to complete all the clumps We are thankful for any help you are able to give us. HADS provides lunch on both days for the workers.

Saturday, August 18th is Sale Day and we meet at Faddegon’s at 7 am to string up the signs and pictures and lay out the daylilies. We also set up two small tents for the members who will be totaling the costs for the customers and taking the money. People who are looking to buy start arriving early, but cannot come into the enclosure until 9 am. The sale runs until noon. We then have to clean up all our paraphernalia to leave the area neat and clean. Most of the workers meet at a local restaurant to have lunch, celebrate and relax.

Something New


Something New

An idea was suggested at the Picnic that we have a Daylily Swap at the September meeting. Everyone liked the idea so we thought we’d try it out.

Some of the details still need to be worked out, but the idea is that you bring in a couple of fans of one of your special daylilies and then you get to swap your fans with someone else who has a daylily you may be interested in adding to your garden.

By September, most of our daylilies are done blooming and it will be easy to remove the fans you want to bring to the swap.

You will need to bring in a picture of the daylily you are bringing and other information such as height, flower size, etc. so people will be able to judge what it looks like and how it grows.

More details will come in the September issue of the newsletter – watch this space!
