Winter Doldrums

Melera, whose talk is entitled, “The Victorians: How They Forever Changed the Garden.” A gardening expert for 13 years, Barbara was President and CEO of The D. Landreth Seed Company, the oldest seedhouse in America established in 1784. She has a lot to offer and it should be an interesting and beautiful presentation. More information will be in the February newsletter – so stay tuned….

Topics for Discussion at
the January Meeting

We have contracted for a bus to the Regional Meeting on Long Island July 19th and 20th – there will be sign up sheets at the meetings. We are considering a refundable charge for members of $25 – this will ensure people don’t sign up and then not show up for the bus on the morning we leave. Guests are also welcome although they will be charged $50 (for $5 they can join the club and ride for free).

To encourage new members, we are looking at giving out a voucher for a free daylily. New members can redeem the voucher at the Members’ Sale in May from the Connoisseurs Table or at the Annual Sale at Faddegon’s in August.

Gift Exchange:
Members who would like to be involved in a Holiday Gift Exchange should wrap a gift with an average price of $15.00 in value and bring it to the party. Please do not place any nametags on your gift. Only those who bring a gift to exchange are eligible to participate. We will use the same exchange rules as the last couple of years with each gift only being permitted to be swapped once; however, due to more people attending, you will have to be prepared to make your swap within one minute after your number is pulled or you will be asked to just take a new unopened gift from those remaining!

Please plan to Bring your Beautiful Photos
to our Holiday Party!

Since members had so much fun at our previous photo contests, we thought we would repeat it again at this year’s Holiday Gathering. The BIG Difference though this year is we are following the criteria the American Hosta Society has set for their contest this year so you can enter our local contest and use the same Hosta photos for the National Competition if you are a member. We are also asking HADS Members to be involved and submit their favorite Daylily photos. Therefore, please sort through all those beautiful photos you have taken! Photos must be printed in 5” x 7” size for our contest with no frames
or mats.

We still feel that the most reasonable place to obtain the enlargements is at Wal-Mart, Target, Rite Aid, CVS, etc. but if you know of a better source…please let us know! When you arrive at the meeting, each member who will be entering photos will select their own mat color and mount their photos. A black or white mat will be supplied. Please place your name on the back side of each photo. Each member may submit up to two (2) photos per category.

Daylily in the article is: Glorious
Autumn by D. Kirchhoff, 2005

For 20 years Amy Ziffer has been helping her Connecticut clients create beautiful gardens. She is a former staff editor at Fine Gardening magazine, a Master Gardener, and of course, a lifelong gardener. Her garden writing and photography have appeared in Fine Gardening, Yankee, and Horticulture magazines as well as other publications. Shade Revealed is the basis for Amy’s well-received book, ‘The Shady Lady’s Guide to Northeast Shade Gardening’, published in 2014 by the University Press of New England.

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
