Green Thumbs Group
165 Archibald Street
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.
FEBRUARY 2020 MEETING
The first meeting 13th February 2020 was held at Bunnings at Paget where 28 members attended.
Karen and Christine from Bunning’s Garden section brought some bugs in jars and gave advice on what spray would be suitable to use on them, as well as advice of what fertilizer to use on our plants.
Karen gave a demonstration on how to graft cuttings from other plants onto a mature Desert Rose. It was a very informative afternoon and appreciated by all who attended.
Our next meeting Wednesday 11th March at 1.30 pm will held at the Mackay Regional Botanic Gardens, 9 Lagoon Street, West Mackay, where two members from the Gardens will give a tour of the gardens and talk about some of the plants and trees.
Instead of a $2 donation to the club we would appreciate if members bought their afternoon tea from the Garden’s Cafe. There will be a lucky ticket prize from our club and small gift of appreciation will be given to the facility.
