We do not pretend to know all the answers but we are all passionate gardeners and are looking for other like-minded people to join our group and let us find answers to problems and learn together.
Meetings are on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. We will visit gardens as often as possible and questions to problems can be raised before afternoon tea. Share your garden problems, experiences and knowledge with us.
The Group met at the Gordon White Library North Mackay to car pool. The meeting was held in the shade of a couple of big trees in Frank Hogan’s garden.
Frank gave a very informative talk on Heritage Roses, some that dated back to the seventies and eighties; fertilizing; pruning; and bug treatment. Frank’s Organic Spray Recipe will be handed out at our July Meeting.
In all it was a very enjoyable afternoon and was enjoyed by all who attended. Plants for sale were also available.
Our next meeting will be held at Robyn McDonald’s home at 9 James Croker Drive, Mt. Pleasant on the 10th July. Robyn’s contact phone number is 49422726. There will be a talk on Desert Roses and a demonstration will be given on Bonsai. Robyn’s garden has 16 steps to go down to the garden.
Please bring a chair and something to share for afternoon tea.
