September Meeting

Our meeting is September 16th at 10 am at the Cooperative Extension offices in Voorheesville. We do not have a speaker, but we will have DVD’s of daylily gardens – it will be nice to see the hybridizers and their gardens. Our business meeting will discuss officer elections and the HADS display garden, along with other business. The display garden is in need of help to get it ready for fall. If you are able to stay after the meeting to chip in with the work, please bring weeding tools. Any help you can give will be appreciated greatly.

Do You Love Colchicums?

Many people will remember Kathy Purdy, who spoke at the Winter Doldrums party last February. Kathy has collected and planted colchicums at her home in Oxford, NY for years. Come see one of the country’s largest collections of colchicums. Kathy Purdy invites you to view the colchicum collection in her garden on Saturday, September 30, 2017 from 11 am to 4 pm, rain or shine. Kathy has over 50 different kinds of these fall-blooming bulbs, many of which will be in bloom at the end of September. Each variety is labeled and attractively situated in the garden with companion plants. Visitors are welcome to bring their own lunch and enjoy it on the screened deck. Set your GPS to 565 Moran
