If you missed the informative program tonight, Seasonal Color In The Garden--Asiatic Lilies, Astilbe, and Achillea, by Marsha Van Abel, you missed out on lots of good information about these beauties and how to grow them in Alaska.
Cindy Forsyth presented photo books of the Willow Garden Tour to those whose gardens were featured in 2014 and to those who played a key role in putting on the event. Contact the Willow Garden Club leadership if you'd like your garden featured next year -- or know of a fine garden worthy of such recognition. It's not too early to be planning for next summer's tour.
Les Brakes announced that Dan Hinkley, author, horticultural consultant, American plantsman, and nurseryman will speak to Willow Garden Club in the coming year. That was good news!
The next opportunity for a Willow Garden Club program is December 20, 2:00 P.M., to make corn husk wreaths. Stay tuned for a flyer with details, and be aware that a limited number can do this one, so you'll want to respond to reserve a place in the workshop. More info coming soon.
Willow Garden Club shirts were distributed this evening. If you ordered a shirt and were not at the meeting to receive it, please contact Carol Goltz to make arrangements for doing so. Also, contact her if you want to order a shirt.
Hope you and your gardens are ready for winter. Rumor has it that snow is coming soon!
