Are Your Babysitter Plants Coming Up?

Yes, I know it’s early yet, but our daylilies are coming up! I’ve already had to put down Deer Scram because the pesky critters have started to munch the tender new shoots.

So as you survey your gardens, keep in mind that Frank Almquist and Sharon Gallucci need to know how many fans your babysitter plants have this year. It’s important to get this information to them as soon as possible, because if the babysitter has enough fans, it will come back to the Members’ Sale on May 11th. You will receive a fan to take back to your garden as a thank you for taking such good care of your babysitter plant.

It may seem early to ask for this information, but May 11th is only 4 weeks away and pictures and details for all the plants in the sale needs to be gathered. Thanks for your help in reporting on your babysitters!

March Meeting

As in past years, our March meeting will be held at the Capital District Garden and Flower Show on Saturday, March 23rd at Hudson Valley Community College.

We share a booth at the flower show with the Iris and Hosta Societies to get the word out about our clubs and sales. We have been fortunate in prior years to have Cindi Jones design and set up our booth. The designs have been beautiful and eye-catching and have caused many people to stop and inquire about our clubs. We are asking people to help this year with ideas for the design and help setting up and taking down the booth. More plans will be made at the Doldrums party.

Notes from the January Meeting

Our Holiday Party in December will be combined with the Hosta Society. Dave and Cindy Jennings have done a wonderful job coordinating the party and will again co-host the event. The date is set for December 14th – we had so much fun last year, everyone’s
